Marquette University caste system belies ideals
Adjuncts have poverty-level wages, usually no benefits, no job security and because of that, they have no academic freedom or means of redress. The Chronicle of Higher Education says it all: “The Ph.D. Now Comes With Food Stamps.” No little boy or girl ever said: “when I grow up, I want to be an adjunct.”

Dan Maguire's New Book
This thoroughly funny memoir proves that life’s tragedies and challenges should never defeat our sense of humor. Whether it is in a happy breakfast with Geraldine Ferraro, an unfriendly lunch with Clarence Thomas, or a grim tete-a-tete with Pope Benedict XVI, Maguire finds the fun in life and shares it with us in these hilarious pages.
