    with decent pay and benefits.

    What's wrong with that?

    We are not trying to exclude you, we are trying to say you are worth more than being categorized as a glorified temp worker with no benefits and crappy pay.

    Why would you want to keep those things?  That's what "adjunct" means to a university--and trust me, I've spent a lot of time in universities!--it means "we don't have to pay these people as much and we don't have to worry about benefits at all.  Cheap teaching on the hoof, woo-hoo!"  It's no different than the way corporations hire "independent contractors" so that they can cut costs.
