College of DuPage adjunct faculty will receive a four-year contract extension under an agreement approved by the COD Board of Trustees and the COD Adjuncts Association (CODAA).
“We appreciate our positive relationship with CODAA and we are very pleased to have reached this agreement, which we believe reflects the role and contributions of our adjunct faculty colleagues,” said College President Dr. Ann Rondeau. “We look forward to continued collaboration as we work together to serve our students.”
The College has agreed to a pay schedule incorporating a 2.6 percent overall increase for fall 2017.

improvements for adjuncts and is a move toward greater equity and fairness,” said
CODAA President Cheryl Baunbach-Caplan. “We thank the College's bargaining team, COD
Dr. Ann Rondeau, and the Board of Trustees for working with us in a respectful and mutually beneficial manner."
