Oral History Interview with Marcia Newfield

Conducted January 31, 2017, as part of the Professional Staff Congress's (PSC) oral history initiative, this interview, conducted by Irwin Yellowitz with Marcia Newfield, covered her time at the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) as an adjunct faculty member and her years as the vice president for part-time instructors (2003-2015) at the PSC.

Hired as an adjunct at Borough Manhattan Community College (BMCC) in 1988, Newfield quickly became involved with the PSC and worked on issues such as healthcare, contract negotiations, and adjunct pay. In addition to her varied personal experiences at CUNY, Newfield touched on a variety of other topics, including the history of adjuncts at CUNY and the efforts of the New Caucus leadership beginning in 2000.
