From 81 to 31 - the number of sessional instructors hired to teach at Thompson Rivers University's Faculty of Arts is being cut by about 60 per cent.

A sessional instructor is a professor without tenure or on a tenure track, like a contract employee.

They make up more than half of the teaching body at TRU.

Daybreak's Shelley Joyce spoke with Christopher Seguin, the Vice President of Advancement at TRU, about the impact these proposed cuts may have.
