Adjunct Faculty

Adjunct faculty are considered “non-salaried employees” because they are not hired on an annual contract basis.  Adjunct faculty include individuals with professional or specialized credentials who are paid on a temporary or part-time basis - often by the course - to provide instruction or instructional-related services.  Adjunct faculty may be given a title containing an academic rank provided the additional title of “Adjunct” precedes the designation of rank.  An adjunct faculty appointment has no significance for the achieving or holding of tenure.
