Instructors are the heart of colleges and universities across British Columbia. They work hard, sharing their knowledge and their research to ensure that students succeed and to improve the lives of all British Columbians.
Luckily, BC's colleges and universities have excellent and dedicated teachers. Unfortunately, a growing number of these educators are contract academic workers: instructors with no job security and often lower pay, hired on a per course or limited-term basis, never sure if they will be working next semester. These poor working conditions hurt students and they hurt communities. It's time to change that.
