Chances are your adjunct population has been built on an ad hoc basis to fill instructional needs. As a result, your institution might not have a solid management framework to support those adjuncts.

That’s a gap you can close with guidance from Managing Adjunct Faculty: A Resource Collection for Administrators. This invaluable guide offers an extensive review of best practices for managing an adjunct cohort and integrating them more fully into your campus community. Whether you’re looking to gain better control over a large adjunct program or seeking to get ahead of the curve on a growing one, you’ll find it to be an invaluable resource.

Topics Covered

Featuring articles drawn from the newsletters Academic Leader, Distance Education Report, and Recruitment and Retention, the authors address management issues for both traditional and online adjuncts. You’ll gain research-based and classroom-tested insights on topics including:
