Of course not, but at the big state schools it is either part-time faculty or graduate students. I teach at a technical college and we have gone from 70% full-time faculty and 30% part-time 25 years ago to the reverse ratio today. However, the majority of our classes are still taught by full-timers (with job security and benefits) because their standard load is 5 classes per semester, and many teach overload classes as well. --P.

Are adjuncts also doing most of the teaching at the elite private colleges?
