Judges’ Comments

“Really interesting, innovative, sophisticated work. I love the story – and graphic! – about the many applicants for the tenure-track jobs and the crowd sourcing project to gather information about adjunct pay. Very valuable contributions to the field.”

“This entry contained well-conceived, reported and written coverage of faculty issues. I especially liked Audrey Williams June’s clever and resourceful use of FOIA on the long odds of getting hired. The data visualization was a fun way to make a potentially dull subject interesting. The PhD placement story and the use of crowdsourcing in the adjunct project were innovative and smart. Great stuff.”
