We value the diverse knowledge and viewpoints offered by our talented part-time faculty. We also respect your time, and will not ask you to come to department meetings without compensating you (at your non-instructional rate). If we could afford it, we would fully involve you in our meetings, trainings, and school-wide policy discussions. Given that we can’t afford it, we do welcome you (but don’t expect you) to volunteer your time to come to additional meetings and/or trainings. Please don’t feel sheepish about checking with your department chair or Dean if it’s not clear whether compensation is available for part-time faculty at a given event.
