Strategies to Attract, Develop and Retain Contingent/Adjunct Faculty

The classic tenured-professor model is evolving as many colleges and universities are employing an increasing number of adjunct faculty members. Current statistics indicate that adjunct faculty make up over half of the faculty on U.S. campuses. Does your campus HR department face challenges because of a shifting dynamic and reliance on part-time and/or contingent faculty? Join us in this interactive session as we consider practical and actionable HR strategies for effectively managing the growing numbers of contingent/adjunct faculty on our campuses. Specific suggestions for policies, procedures and campus partners will be discussed.
