No opinion of CEO

Pros

Compensation c. $5000 per course is decent compared to adjunct contracts at many other schools. Adjuncts are eligible for conference travel and teaching enrichment grants. Because a large number of adjuncts teach at RISD, staff (admin, library, etc) are accustomed to dealing with the needs of adjuncts and do so well. A strong union protects the interests of adjunct faculty.

Cons

Poor office space resources for adjunct faculty. Adjuncting is a permanent institution here (i.e. low rate of intake of adjuncts into permanent faculty).
