Adjunct Faculty Support

Adjunct faculty, those hired on a semester basis to teach less than full time, have a group meeting with the associate provost of Academic Affairs once each semester.

Adjunct faculty can be aided by much of the content within the Academic Affairs Web site, in particular the resources directory, procedures and academics pages. Adjuncts should read their respective faculty contracts to be familiar with instructional responsibilities (AAUP- Article 6; NMUFA - Article 12).

Variances From Full Time Faculty

There are some variations in benefits and support from full time faculty. Those variances are described within this page.
