Building Structures and Supports to Engage Adjunct Faculty in the Student Success Movement

Date and Time: October 03, 2018 3:35–4:55 PM
Location: Garden Grove, CA
Venue: Hyatt Regency | Terrace D–F

This session shared emerging practices at Achieving the Dream colleges participating in an initiative entitled Engaging Adjunct Faculty in the Student Success Movement. This project seeks to identify scalable strategies that build institutional capacity to better integrate and engage adjunct faculty members in the student success agenda, and to understand and address opportunities and challenges faced by colleges engaging part-time faculty.

Participants discussed the importance of designing adjunct faculty development activities in varied formats that reach and engage educators with different levels of experience, investment, and motivation. The presenters also examined how incentives for participation should be built into a larger system of how the institution hires, evaluates, retains, and promotes its adjunct faculty.
