Altha Cravey, associate professor of geography, and Maria DeGuzman, a professor in the department of English and comparative literature, rally for higher pay for adjunct faculty members at UNC on the steps of Wilson Library on Wednesday. About 59 percent of the UNC faculty is not on a tenure track, organizers said, up form 12 percent in 2003. A full time adjunct instructor makes $53,000 a year, about half the average salary of a tenured professor.
