A participatory project to collect and preserve the histories of the City University of New York

"Student Struggles"

Written by Eric Marshall and published in 1996 in The Advocate, this article explained the function of  the CUNY Adjunct Project (CAP) as an aggregator of data about adjunct work at CUNY. Critical of the Professional Staff Congress's (PSC) role in fighting for adjunct rights, Marshall nevertheless advocated for adjuncts to join the Professional Staff Congress (PSC) in order to “make our numbers count”.

The Adjunct Project, founded in 1994, was an activity of the Doctoral Student Council (DSC). It was established to advocate on behalf of, disseminate information to, and educate the Graduate School and University Center (GSUC) student adjuncts on issues pertaining to their academic employment.

The Advocate was the newspaper for the students, staff, and faculty of the Graduate Center, CUNY.
