Adjunct Chat Composite

Maria C. Maisto (left) and Matthew M. Chingos (right) will chat with a Chronicle reporter, Audrey Williams June, on Wednesday, February 5, at 2 p.m., U.S. Eastern time.

The Chronicle on Monday published an article describing how Maria C. Maisto, an advocate for adjunct instructors, went to Capitol Hill and got members of Congress talking about higher education's growing reliance on adjuncts and how their working conditions make it difficult for them to do their best work.

Join the article's reporter, Audrey Williams June, this Wednesday at 2 p.m., U.S. Eastern time, for a live Chronicle chat to discuss lawmakers’ new interest in the plight of adjuncts.

Ms. June will be joined by Ms. Maisto, leader of the adjunct-advocacy group New Faculty Majority, and Matthew M. Chingos, a fellow in the Brookings Institution’s Brown Center on Education Policy.
