Adjunct Task Force

In November 2010, the Center for Teaching & Learning organized a task force composed of adjunct faculty, charged with the task of offering advice on how part-time faculty might share teaching practices and to propose mechanisms for improving teaching services.

The resulting Adjunct Task Force worked through the beginning of the fall 2011 semester, and produced a report:

Improving the adjunct faculty experience at Queens College 

The report offers three specific areas for improvement, and suggests specific mechanisms:

  • access to college information, communications, and resources;
  • adjunct representation and community; and
  • professional opportunities and development.
