    Where the [Wild Things] Adjuncts are

    * Institutions that pay full-time faculty members well.
    * Institutions in urban areas.
    * Institutions with relatively small enrollments and large proportions of part-time students.
    * Institutions that rely more on tuition and fees for balancing their budgets.

    This was the culminating list given by the Scott Jaschik's story "Where the Adjuncts are." While not really insiteful, the story does indicate that those institutions that employ on the cheap are also those institutions that operate on the cheap...they need money, so the scrimp.

    No real news...just connecting dots.

    Would you like me to read this to you? Listen
