Faculty Story: Rebecca Bach, Sociology

Rebecca Bach

The situation for adjuncts is that of an underclass in the Duke system. Full professors at Duke are among the highest paid in the country. Assistant professors can start at over $100,000 per year. An adjunct who is paid to teach two courses a semester, a full teaching load in many departments, earns just $30,000 per year and has no benefits or job security. A union provides the only opportunity for contingent faculty to support ourselves and our families.
