More Adjunct Professor Abuse

I read this article on Inside Higher Ed this morning, and am once again am utterly disgusted by the way universities treat adjunct faculty (and relieved not to be an academic anymore). Adjunct faculty at UIPUI got together to create their own insurance pool and get a group insurance plan, only to be shot down by the university administration (who won’t cover these professors insurance, even though they do much of the same work as tenure and tenure-track faculty), on the grounds that university policy says that any insurance program for any employees of the university must be administered by the university, which they refuse to do for these adjuncts. Absolutely disgusting.
