Part-time Faculty Appointments

When the School cannot meet its teaching needs from the ranks of its full-time tenure-track (TT) faculty, full-time non-tenure track (NTT) faculty, and/or graduate students, part-time faculty appointments will be made from an established pool of qualified applicants not currently on regular appointment at the University.

Normally, for all part-time faculty candidates who will be assigned to teach at an off-campus location, such as Florence, New York, and regional campus facility, their credentials (i.e., vita, resume, and/or portfolio) are to be reviewed by the FAC with recommendations going forth to the Director.  At the point of hiring part-time instructors, they should be informed that they are required to use the syllabus and textbook developed for the course at the Kent Campus. Any deviation must be approved by the School’s Curriculum Committee in advance.
