Appointment Date & Academic Calendar
Most positions open between the close of registration and first day of instruction each semester. The fall term begins in late August and ends in mid-December; the spring term runs from the end of January through the middle of May.
Regular performance evaluations of part-time lecturers are made by the department or program according to the terms of the adopted University Policy Statement (UPS 210.060). Positive reviews are based upon student ratings of instruction, course materials, and observations made by a department tenured or tenure-track faculty member. The primary service responsibility of part-time faculty is to provide opportunities for student consultation outside of the regular class hours; on-line discussion periods or e-mail contacts shall not be a complete substitute for face-to-face consultation periods.
Application materials are accepted on an on-going basis and will be filed for later reference when there are no open positions. Send a letter of application describing teaching experience and interests, a curriculum vitae, 2 letters of recommendation and a Graduate Transcript copy to:
