Guidelines for Initial Step Placement of Adjuncts

Draft: 2003 February 6

  1. Generally, adjuncts should be placed at Step 1 of the appropriate teaching faculty level, that is, lecturer, assistant professor, associate professor, or full professor, depending on their qualifications and academic achievements.
  2. Adjuncts who teach at more than one CUNY institution should be placed at the step reported in CUPS.
  3. Adjuncts with at least six semesters of teaching experience at non-CUNY institutions within the preceding three years, including summers, may be considered for placement at Step 2. This is by analogy with the provision in Article 24 of the PSC/CUNY contract for adjuncts with experience at CUNY.
  4. In professional areas, the nature and duration of a professional career may be considered as reasons for placement at Step 2 or 3.
  5. Scarcity of qualified adjunct applicants for advanced or specialized courses may justify offering a higher step.
