It is the Department Chairperson’s role and responsibility to recruit and select part-time Faculty. In the event of a vacancy to be filled by a temporary part-time appointment, the Department Chairperson seeks to meet the need by offering the position to a qualified person chosen from an established pool of applicants maintained for this purpose. Applications for part-time pool positions are solicited once each year through advertising as required by the University. Minimum qualification requires that the applicant hold the Master’s degree in economics or equivalent in the discipline in which he/she is required to teach. Normally, for the initial employment of a part-time faculty member, the Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC) shall review candidates and make recommendations to the Chairperson prior to initial hiring and inclusion in the pool.
