Alma mater, the kind mother, have you ever checked yours? I just looked up mine, the one that granted my BA.
Communication: one full time professor, the rest adjuncts.
English: two full time professors, the rest adjuncts.
Professional studies: no full time professors.
Hamster Fucking (my major): Two full time professors, the rest adjuncts.
I've been giving them a very small amount of money yearly since I graduated grad school and had money to give.
No more. I'll let them know that I'm no longer donating a penny until they stop using it to exploit part time labor and cheat students of access to full time professors. I should point out, this is a very small school, smaller than the very small SLAC I currently teach at as one of eight full time professors in the department of Hamster Fucking.
Maybe that's the way to change things: let our almae matres know that we don't think it's all that alma to exploit people. Maybe until we tell them, paedicabo ego vos et irrumabo! will they change things.
Wow, my auto-correct really hates Latin. But you know why I know that much Latin? Because I had a goddamned full time professor who had the time and energy to teach me, that's why!
