Adjunct Faculty Hiring Procedure
In general, the following hiring
procedure should be followed:
Prospective adjunct faculty must
(1) complete an application and submit it to Human Resources
and (2) request an official transcript sent directly from the granting
institution to Human Resources. Applications are available at all campuses and most sites.
Human Resources processes
applications and forwards them to the division and the department..
The Department Chair will appoint
a hiring/recruitment committee to review applications and conduct
interviews. The Department Chair is responsible for coordinating the
review of applications.
Applicants should be evaluated,
interviewed where appropriate, and ranked according to the criteria
defined in the Adjunct Faculty Hiring Policy. Eligibility rankings ("eligible" or
"eligible/highest priority to hire") will be indicated
course number and subcode (to differentiate Distance Learning courses).
The Department Chair will return
applications to the Dean of Arts and Humanities with a ranking (if qualified) or a
reason the applicant was not qualified.
The Standard Procedure will
be circumvented only in cases of genuine crisis management
(where "crisis" indicates situations that were unforeseeable).
In the case of crisis management, these steps may be
collapsed, and the Department Chair may put an applicant on
the eligibility list immediately, but with probationary status, if
the applicant meets the minimum
criteria as defined in B under the Adjunct Faculty Hiring Policy,
the applicant has an application
pending with HR, and
the Department Chair has
reason to believe that the applicant is capable of conducting the course(s) at an acceptable level.
If possible, the Department Chair
will consult with the hiring committee prior to emergency placement
under this provision.
The Department Chair will submit
a report concerning emergency placements to the hiring/recruitment
committee and to the Dean of Arts and Humanities.
The Department Chair will arrange for the
completion of new hire paperwork, usually by referring successful
applicants to the office of the Dean of Arts and Humanities.
The Department Chair will assign
mentors to new adjunct faculty and will place new adjunct faculty on an
appropriate collegial team.
