Dr. Margaret Hanzimanolis has been appointed the Chair of the Executive Committee for Part-time Faculty Discussion group, in the Modern Language Association, an association of almost 30,000 language and literature professors from the U.S. and Canada. 

The MLA is the largest disciplinary organization in the world, and it is in the midst of a major pivot toward community college professors and  adjunct faculty. Margaret serves with Maria Maisto, the President of the New Faculty Majority, an advocacy group for adjunct faculty. A motion calling for the Integrated Post-secondary Data System (IPEDS) to require institutions to report  pay for Part-time faculty came out of the committee's work in January of this  year.

Dr. Margaret Hanzimanolis participated in the Campaign for the Future of Higher Education, in Sacramento, during Jan 20-22 this year.

The "think tank" discussed three new proposals for financing higher education, including Bob Samuels' "Free Higher Education" proposal, which consists  of a plan for reallocating and rearranging existing funding streams.
