Adjunct (part-time) faculty are an integral part of the university’s teaching and learning mission. They teach a significant percentage of our students, bring valuable expertise from the professional world, and maintain important links between the university and our community partners. The University employs three classes of adjunct faculty members: term adjuncts, whose contracts are typically for one or two course sections per term and may or may not be renewed for subsequent terms; annual adjuncts, whose annual contracts put them between 50% and 65% FTE; and bargaining-unit adjuncts, whose multi-year contract are at greater than or equal to 65% FTE enables them to be represented by the AAUP.
All three classes of adjunct faculty receive some level of benefits and are eligible for promotion.
