Adjunct professor protest

On Wednesday, March 1, a group of citizens, students and faculty marched from the Clock Tower to DuBourg Hall hoping to send a message to the administration here at Saint Louis University to change how they treat their adjunct staff.

The march was coordinated by the Service Employees International Union Faculty Forward program that organized marches at universities across the country as part of its “Day of Action.” The march was in response to the recent appointment of Betsy DeVos, as well as other actions made by the current administration, and the movement away from investing in the next generation’s education.Several students and adjunct faculty spoke about their experiences. The pay and bonuses of adjunct staff have been a recent source of dispute among the Saint Louis University community, and now the students and faculty are taking action and speaking out about it.
