Adjunct Oversight Committee

The Adjunct Oversight Committee is made up of five regular faculty members (one member designated from each of the following committees: Faculty Welfare Committee and the Faculty Compensation Committee) with three elected faculty members, two of whom are regular faculty, and one elected adjunct faculty member. In addition, an ex-officio non-voting member designated by the Provost.

The committee receives and analyzes reports from the Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Information Management on the following: the number of adjuncts employed by the College, the number of credit hours delivered by adjunct faculty, adjunct faculty members’ rank and status (part-time or full-time), and adjunct faculty compensation. The committee also receives and analyzes reports from the Provost’s office on College policies for adjunct faculty. To fulfill its responsibilities, the committee gathers additional information on adjunct practices in use in schools, departments, and programs, and will regularly report to the Faculty Senate, Provost, and adjunct faculty on the College’s adjunct policies and practices. The committee is also responsible for receiving and responding to information from the Provost’s office and/or senior leadership regarding future plans for the College that will affect the College’s reliance on adjunct faculty or compensation of adjunct faculty.
