Section VIII - Faculty & Instruction


Faculty - Faculty Membership

To define the term “faculty”

Faculty members are those persons who provide direct instruction to students. Two categories of faculty membership are used:

  1. Full-time faculty are teaching personnel who hold contracts of a specified period of time, usually 9-12 months
  2. Adjunct faculty are teaching personnel contracted to teach specific course(s).

The term "faculty" refers to both full-time and adjunct faculty. If a certain policy or procedure is pertinent to only one type of faculty, it will refer specifically to that group.
