Tenure for the Common Good seeks to rally tenured faculty to use their tenured positions to fight for justice on their own campuses and nationally. We represent a broad spectrum of public and private colleges and universities across the United States. We aim to work with our already active contingent (adjunct, lecturer, part-time) colleagues to achieve the goal of equity in the academic workplace. All of us, no matter our academic position, want decent working conditions, job security and academic freedom, health care, and a livable wage. And we want them for everyone. The exploitation of contingent faculty degrades us all.
