AbstractFacing skyrocketing tuition increases, many universities have begun to hire more adjunct faculty who, unlike tenured faculty who are expected to do research, apply and manage grants, as well as teach, usually only teach one or a few courses per semester, are paid relatively little, and have a much more flexible schedule. However, adjunct professors often have limited office hours, and may be inaccessible to students unless the volunteer their time.
