Example text

Students perceive their instructors, part time or otherwise, to represent the school when it comes to knowledge of policies and procedures, performance standards, access to student services, and a general understanding of institutional culture. Part-time faculty who have not been oriented to the institution can hardly be expected to provide students with valuable support in these areas. Many schools now have well-established orientation programs for new (full-time) faculty and for support staff; they may vary in length, scope, and intensity, but they all have the common goal of helping new employees become familiar with the culture, values, resources, and requirements of the organization.

In addition to the cost involved for part-time faculty, their privacy is affected (and most are not paid for that time). Access to a campus phone, therefore, is very important. While it may not be practical to assign separate equipment to each part-time instructor, a separate phone extension is important. Most large phone systems provide for a single central number to be used as access to numerous extensions (much as the main campus number provides). Individual extensions can also be equipped with voice mail capacity so that students can leave messages for their instructors, and conversely, instructors can leave messages for students.

A comprehensive part-time faculty handbook may contain the following sections and information: 1. Institutional Mission, Goals, and Values 2. Hiring/Firing/Employment Process and Policies • Identity of those authorized to hire part-time faculty • Position description development • Methods for broadcasting position availability • Application process—forms to be completed, deadlines, documentation, references • Selection process—review procedures, interview • Hiring process • Teaching loads • Pay procedures .................
