Reinvest in Public Higher Education
We are making our voices heard, along with our colleagues around the US, to urge Congress to enact important measures that will improve equity in higher education in the US. Right now, we need to push for three key equity provisions to be included in the social infrastructure bill. Specifically, these three provisions would:
Require all institutions getting federal support to move towards 75 percent tenure stream instruction, starting by converting current adjuncts and NTTs to new tenure stream positions;
offer free college at 2- and 4-year institutions, with an emphasis on HBCUs and BIPOC students; and
require pay parity for remaining adjuncts and a living wage for all campus workers.
