By joining with NFM, you take an important stand for the integrity of higher education. Whether or not your teaching is your primary source of income, and whether or not you want or have access to a full-time appointment or to tenure, your work is at the heart of higher education’s mission. This fact alone entitles you — and all of your colleagues — to be treated with respect, professionalism, and fairness.
Membership in NFM connects you to colleagues across the country who share your convictions about the importance of higher education and the need to hold institutions to the highest standard of
ethical practice. Working together and working for each other and our students, adjunct and contingent faculty in NFM can use the power of our numbers to effect lasting, positive change.
