Adjunct Faculty Handbook
(shortcut to relevant sections of the Faculty Handbook particularly relevant to adjunct faculty)
The University Faculty Handbook applies to all teaching faculty. While most of the Handbook applies in the same way to all teaching faculty, certain sections of it pertain specifically to part-time (adjunct) faculty. Those sections are:
126.96.36.199 Part-time appointments
188.8.131.52 Summer session contract (see the part of this section applying to adjuncts)
3.5 Rank of adjunct instructor
3.7.2 Affiliate faculty
5.4 Academic policies and regulations
5.7.5 Access to resources (scroll to bottom at this link)
6.10 Evaluation of adjunct faculty
Please note that all other sections of the Handbook apply to adjuncts. In particular, section 5 (faculty rights, responsibilities, and policies) contains specific guidance about a number of practical matters that will help adjunct faculty understand expectations and requirements of teaching at the University of Mary Washington.
