Campus Equity Week (26-30)
2020 hashtag: #classcanceled
Campus Equity Week is a time of education and activism that draws attention to the working conditions of faculty working on temporary, low-paid contracts, who now constitute the majority of college instructors. The pandemic has put a damper on some CEW activities, but the week is still being recognized.
Officially, the date for Campus Equity Week is October 26-30, but what’s more important is that campus communities (faculty, students, staff, and administrators) get the word out this fall before the budget and legislative processes begin. In general, the time to plan actions is during the last two weeks of October.
To assist you, the CFT Part-Time Faculty Committee has compiled a Campus Equity Week toolkit that contains materials to plan activities in your local union. Make it happen at your campus!
