Do you know this dog? If so send me an email (kreed@vcu.edu)! She is freshly bathed and exhausted from running around with my dogs. She has a collar but not tags. She is ridiculously friendly.

I’m excited for this series because as an (compassionate?) HR person in higher ed, I find the structure of adjunct appointments really troublesome. Also, as a person currently pursuing a graduate degree, a future for myself in higher ed looks increasingly more rare. I don’t want to teach but maybe i would run a program or something. Lately I’ve been thinking that I’m only in higher ed so I can get a low-cost degree and I should probably go somewhere else when I’m done.

Ugh so I just heard that a faculty member I know once said to a colleague, “Don’t forget to put your credentials on your business card or people will think you’re a staff member.”

This is so so wrong.


1. Staff can have advanced degrees.

2. There are plenty of faculty members who do not have advanced degrees. Having a master’s is not even a qualification to be classified as faculty.

3. Fuck you.
