You Get What You Pay For


Protestors marched from the UI's historic Pentacrest to the home of UI president Bruce Harreld on May 4, 2018. UI's non-tenured faculty advocated for greater job security, fair pay, and benefits, along with a voice in policy decisions; more stable employment contracts, and standard annual raises.


Job security was said to consequently affect student experiences, creating a “culture of fear” among faculty members. A Board of Regents report showed the University of Iowa now has 1,754 non-tenure-track faculty—about 54% of UI faculty, up from 48% in 2015.
