My name is Kelli King. I am a continuing appointment lecturer at UCR. This is my 15 year in the Dance Department. Layoffs in June mean my colleagues who do not have a continuing appointment will be financially devastated. Years of mentoring students, nurturing relationships with colleagues and academic cohesiveness will be lost. If my pay is cut I can’t imagine how I will provide for elders in my care. This combined with a huge increase in workload from moving dance classes online, means I work harder and longer for less pay . What?!
