I worked as a full time adjunct professor for many years. I lived paycheck to paycheck only. Summer term means no guarranteed income. I had to take tutorial jobs to make ends meet. I have been out of the adjunct professor job for 5 years now. I am more financially stable (12 months guaranteed salary) plus I have health and retirement benefits. I love teaching but I have bills to pay.

​@@lolfala101 I considered it full time because I was working in four different universities teaching a total of 24 hours in all 4 universities. For five years I did that, I had no benefits. I don't even have an office so I would have student consultation in the library. Now, I am working full time as a resident Biologist in a media company/ TV station. I am more financially secure now. I still teach part time on weekends just because I want to. I love teaching but the abuse to adjunct professors has to be broken. I am glad I did it.

Yep. Taught on a semester to semester contract at a community college for 5 years before my luck ran out (also had multiple jobs to make that work). I would agree with everything you have said here; if you don’t have a passion for what you are doing, forget it. It is basically volunteer work. And it is VERY rare these gigs ever lead to a full-time position mainly because, as you said, full-time positions are very rapidly becoming a thing of the past. Just know what you are getting yourself into and it is probably NOT a full-time career, or anything that is going to be sustainable for very long.

This is 100% correct! I hate that younger adjuncts are still led to believe it will turn into a full time job.

​@dr.tonyalawson this was the same case in the 2000s 😂. My private tutoring was more lucrative so I 🤷 never applied to be an adjunct. Plus we had to pay for parking 😒 out of pocket. I can't believe 😪 that it's now 2023 and it's exactly 💯 the same situation STILL. I would have thought that especially professors who have a Ph.D. 😂 would fight fight fight for the better pay by now. Still...NO.

Really? I was thinking about supplementing my income via this route. I have an MBA and am a project manager, salary is $127k per yr. Wife makes about the same. I’m bored and need to make more, I heard you can make $3k per class, per semester and generally are limited to 2 classes. So $6k dived by 3 months? Is that about right? I wouldn’t mind this, my current job is easy and I have lots of down time working from home. Note: My adjunct professors were mainly bare-minimum. I wouldn’t say lazy but you could tell they have a day job. If this is common, seems like a good fit!

Being an adjunct should Only be considered a “‘side gig “……this is not a livable wage!

She got me at “depending on where you live that might seem like a lot of money”. This is in reference to $14k. Um.

I meant depending on which country you live in. In some countries $14k is a lot.

I am a little confused. Maybe the pay is different, but I earned $3,800 to teach one, 3-credit course for a semester. 3 × 3800 would be $11,400 per semester at 9 credits, $22,800 if two semesters. Maybe the online courses pay less than in-person?

@dr.tonyalawson
@dr.tonyalawson

No, at my University online and in person classes pay the same. The amount varies from University to university so yours must pay more, but $22,800 is still far too little!

Does being a professor give you credibility to be able to sell yourself in your other jobs? Is that how you can make it work? Would you make as much money in those other jobs without being a professor? Does it help you with your communication and sales skills to be an entrepreneur?

@dr.tonyalawson +2
@dr.tonyalawson

That is a really great question. I think it may have given me some credibility early in my career, but at this point my results provide all the credibility I need. As far as communication and sales skills, I think its exactly the opposite. Being an entrepreneur actually makes me a better professor!

No. When you are an adjunct, that tends to make you less marketable in other jobs. In fact, if you are an adjunct for too long, it reduces your prospects of becoming a full time professor anywhere. Facts.

What is it that keeps adjunct professors coming back to teach? I dont understand. Is this why it seem as if they do not want to be teaching my online classes? I dont understand why this is tolerated.

That’s such a great question! Many adjuncts are led to believe that paying their dues as an adjunct will lead to a full time job (not true). It’s also most likely that they WANT to be teaching you, but are also working 2 other jobs just to make rent so their time is limited. If you think about it from the University’s perspective, why would they spend 4x as much on a full time faculty member when they have easy access to cheap labor.

That's more than some other universities pay for engineering and computer science adjuncts, live courses on campus. You're doing this asynchronous, for less hours, count your blessings. Oh, and some of us have to pay for parking...

I totally get it. I started on campus. I wouldn’t do it anymore. Asynchronous is the only reason I’m still an adjunct.

There are too many of you! This is why you make so little money. Find another job please, or at a minimum please stop complaining about pay or tenure. The universities have spoken, they don't want you as part of the permanent team.

*You are wrong. Colleges and universities want part time instructors more than full time instructors because they save a lot of money. Over 50% of classes are now taught by part-time instructors. As an added treat, the administrations can be more abusive with adjuncts than they can with full time/tenured faculty. Facts*

Actually, universities DO want adjuncts. They are cheap labor. I teach because I love it and it is side income for me. I run my own business as my full time job. The problem lies with younger adjuncts who falsely believe that it is going to eventually turn into a full time job. That’s why I made this video in the first place. To educate.

​@@dr.tonyalawsonyes! We're being lied to!!!! I know countless adjuncts who were hoping to be hired on as full-time time...and after 14 years of being adjunct still were passed over! 😢 I feel bad for those who have been mislead 😕 😖 😣.
