Persons qualified to provide special services to the University and who receive no compensation from the University are appointed as adjunct faculty and are assigned appropriate rank and title. Persons holding adjunct titles are non-voting members of the faculty.
To obtain authorization for adjunct appointments, a recommendation is submitted by the department chair to the dean and forwarded to the vice president for approval. Upon receiving approval of this request, the dean or director is responsible for initiating and issuing a new adjunct faculty contract.
Adjunct appointments are approved by the department concerned, the dean, and the executive vice president & provost. Upon approval, appointing documents are returned to the originating college where they are retained along with any supporting material, transcripts, and curriculum vita.
Adjunct faculty are eligible for grants-in-aid for themselves but not their immediate family. They are provided a staff I.D. and are covered by Worker's Compensation. A special contract form is used for adjunct faculty appointments and can be obtained from the Human Resources website.
On a quarterly basis, each college submits an approved list of adjunct appointments to the Business Center North Worker's Compensation Office. This list includes the name, college/department, highest degree, and dates of appointment.
Promotion, which should be based on performance, is subject to the same review as initial appointments. The recommendations are made in writing by the chair, submitted to the dean and executive committee, and forwarded to the executive vice president & provost for approval.
