Adjunct Faculty Handbook

Adjunct Faculty play a major role in helping UAS achieve its mission.  They comprise the majority of instructors at UAS, making possible the wide diversity of subjects and degrees available for learning.  As part-time employees, they have different needs and priorities than other faculty.  The UAS Adjunct Faculty Handbook reflects this difference.  It contains important contact information for questions about instruction, instructional technology, administrative procedures, and more.

The Adjunct Faculty Handbook is updated by the Provost's Office, in collaboration with the Adjunct Faculty Union President.

Adjunct Faculty Evaluation

Adjunct self-assessment is part of UAS' overall effort to provide constructive and timely feedback to adjuncts, focusing on continuous improvement of instruction.  It is an important part of improving the quality of UAS' teaching and learning - key to accreditation and student success.  While voluntary, adjunct instructors are encouraged to complete an annual adjunct faculty self-assessment form prior to the end of their current teaching year.  The submitted self-assessments are subsequently reviewed by the appropriate program coordinator or department chair that then provides a response to the adjunct instructor.
