COCAL XI: Shaping an Equitable & Democratic Future for Higher Education: The Way Forward

Mon, Aug 4, 2014 at 09:30 AM to Wed, Aug 6, 2014 at 04:30 PM

The Coalition of Contingent Academic Labor (COCAL) is a tri-national association of grassroots activists from Canada, Mexico and the U.S. working to improve higher education through collective advocacy for contingent academic laborers. The group was formed in 1996, and has held 10 biennial conferences. COCAL has built an international network of activists over the years, and its conferences have given rise to national organizing efforts such as the New Faculty Majority (COCAL XIII) and Campus Equity Week (COCAL IV).

Adjuncts and other contingent academic employees have achieved a new level of visibility on campus, in the media and in congress. They’re organizing unions around the country. Attendees at this year’s conference will devise strategies and campaigns to build on this momentum.
