About this Article

Concerned that community colleges are cutting the teaching hours of part-time faculty to avoid providing them health care under the Affordable Care Act, educators are imploring presidents to reconsider. "If you don't have contingent labor, you don't have community colleges," Roosevelt University faculty member Beverly Stewart said afterward.
