We will confirm acceptance into the program a few weeks before the semester begins. Call or email the Faculty Center if you have questions.
We hold training sessions for adjunct faculty once per semester, covering both nuts-and-bolts (rosters, legal matters, syllabi) and more general pedagogy (how to hold effective and interesting lectures, increase student engagement, and build courses that are balanced and aligned between goals, objectives, assignments, and teaching practice).
The retreat is either a three hour (nuts-and-bolts) or eight hour event (including more in-depth pedagogical topics) with an hour set aside for lunch on your own.
Attendance is limited to forty participants, so please register early.
In addition to the Saturday Retreat, adjuncts are encouraged to explore our page of resources for adjuncts.
