Campus Equity Week/ Fair Employment Week
October 27-November 2, 2013
Campus Equity Week (USA)/Fair Employment Week (Canada) was October 27-November 2, 2013. Activists on campuses across Canada and the United States organized events to bring attention to the issues involved in the employment of contingent faculty and instructors in institutions of higher education. FEW/CEW aimed to bring more public awareness to working conditions faced by many contingent faculty: low wages and benefits, lack of academic freedom, unpredictability of assignments, and arbitrary treatment.
