ASU English: Lessons Learned from a Good Outcome

Inside Higher Ed
June 22nd, 2015

There is some good news regarding the situation of Arizona State University’s non-tenure-track writing instructors.
As reported on their “asugainst55” website, in a meeting with a vice provost, they were promised base salaries of either $36,000 for a 4/4 course load or $40,000 for a 5/5 course load.
Both choices come without any specific service duties.
This is a marked improvement over the initial proposal from last December of $32,000 for a 5/5 load.
Instructors went from a potential effective pay cut of 25% to an $8000 raise. As their site says, “this is the first significant pay increase for the rank in 28 years.”
