Join Adjunct Action for 8/5 call with Sen. Durbin
Sen. Richard A. Durbin (D-Ill.) introduced a bill in Congress on July 30 that would help part-time adjunct faculty access Public Service Loan Forgiveness.
Join Adjunct Action Network for a call with Senator Durbin, adjunct leaders, and members of the Adjunct Action Network for news about the new bill expanding Public Service Loan Forgiveness to adjunct faculty and other updates about the exciting road ahead.
Those who teach at least one course in a given year would qualify, if they do not have a separate, full-time, private sector job. Maria Maisto, NFM President, said the Adjunct Faculty Loan Forgiveness Act will need grassroots support and is “perhaps the first piece of legislation focused on adjunct faculty.”
Here’s how to join the call:
When: Tuesday, Aug. 5, at 5:20 p.m. EDT
How: Call (800) 230-1085. An operator will ask for your name and educational institution (if applicable).
RSVP now and let others interested in adjunct issues know about the call.
