Who was Applauded?

We asked you to nominate noteworthy adjuncts on your campus—and nominate you did! Over one hundred adjunct faculty members across the nation were applauded this April, and we have you and many other supportive faculty members to thank for that. Check out some of the amazing nominees and messages of appreciation from their nominations. Spreading the love feels good, doesn't it?
