Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at University of North Carolina part-time

Pros

Love the students with whom we are so lucky to work—smart, kind, thoughtful about and dedicated to their work. Though this can continue growing (!), students are from every life background—all economic classes, races and ethnicities, gender presentations and sexualities, religions, immigration statuses, health and dis/ability statuses. All of the above is a true gift in a classroom, as an instructor.

Cons

Low pay for teaching fellows/contract. Teaching not emphasized in graduate programs—ie meant to be an afterthought (which leads to bad quality education). In other words, the University sets up a system for grad teaching fellows’ quality work to be used for little pay under High pressure.

Advice to Management

Raise teaching contract pay to humane levels for grad students. Create more professorship and fewer adjunct lines—professors at major universities should not be living in poverty.

Create time, space, and priorities trainings for faculty and grad teaching fellows that leave room for great teaching to occur and be rewarded equally (not stigmatized or dismissed).
