I visited a tenured professor at UDC who was my graduate advisor. Since the graduate program folded she is all thats left but nevertheless I did ask about adjunct instruction. Imagine my shock, sadness, and surprise that she is trying to point me to the world of MOOC (massive open online courses). "Maybe you can find something there," she lisps. Obviously my graduating with high honors is a faded memory. She presides over dead bones. She may have the luxury of daubling in online in her offtime but this joint has all the signs of a wannabee public tech bubble, high on programming with instructors filling in the slots. Read consumer affairs or reviewopedia. I work for a tutoring franchise and my boss who says he is just biding his time for nabbing a govt contract says "I build the business, and the tutors come. We train you to fill in as needed." Well I guess that now I know she really does cheer for the walmrtiztion of higher education and that under her leadership it may just as well accelerate. As long as theres one pensioner left with plenty of privatization stock options in her special portfolio, CHEERS!
Not very friendly canpus. Feels institutional. At the CC a belligerent guard asks for your UDC id card. At the Flagship the campus feels like it is dying rather than vibrant. A bad sign is the poor salary for adjunct professors. The library computers have autotext trojans. The library staff also not friendly. As an alumni i have an easier time visiting other campuses. An HBCU should not be defined by appearance but instead as place for incubation of ideas outside the box. The campus has caved into neoliberal conformity but that has not garnered it much more than less tolerance for innovation, entrepreneurship, and honoring the protest traditions that served as the wellsprings for freedom. Hard to locate staff who might be receptive to your ideas, whether a presentation or exhibit. As an alumni it would be nice to have unfettered access to library and career services even for a small fee. Staff will not return email if you are not either a student or distinguished personage. As a rule they do not support liberal grassroots NGOs unless they are identifiable grasstops. Its not very soulful.
