websites for faculty and adjuncts displaced by Katrina

Besides this forum, at least two other websites are available for displaced adjunct faculty to provide information about their situations and to get information about available jobs and support. The CCCC/NCTE Hurricane Katrina website is http://www.ncte.org/announce/122013.htm. The Campus Equity Week website, http://www.cew.org, will soon have forums to discuss the situations of adjunct faculty affected by Katrina and to post information.

Please get the word out to any faculty you know who has been affected by the hurricane, especially adjunct faculty.
