Some adjunct faculty in the biggest college at University of Texas at San Antonio could be first to go - Silvia Foster-Frau, Express News

The University of Texas at San Antonio administration has advised the faculty of its biggest college that fiscal belt-tightening moves may stymie the rehiring of adjunct faculty next semester. While no official decision has been made yet, a loss of adjunct faculty members in the College of Liberal and Fine Arts could mean larger class sizes and heftier workloads for the remaining professors. Adjunct teachers make up more than one-third of the college’s total faculty. And because almost every student must take a core course within the college to graduate, few would be unaffected by any reduction. “We are realigning our resources,” said Joe Izbrand, chief communications officer for UTSA. http://www.expressnews.com/news/education/article/Some-adjunct-faculty-in-the-biggest-college-at-9984682.php
