While all faculty and staff are welcome at all TLC events, there are two main programs geared specifically for adjunct faculty. First, the COACH Adjunct Faculty Learning Community (or Adjunct FLC) gathers adjuncts from all across the college, engaging in ongoing discussion and professional learning. The group meets twice during the quarter to address topics unique to contingent faculty. Both new and returning adjunct faculty are invited to participate, and dates for the meetings are sent out with the weekly email. For more information, contact the group’s facilitators Rabab Nemri and Colette Wanke.
The second effort is financial support for all adjunct faculty who participate in TLC programming. Thanks to college support, adjunct faculty attendance earns small stipends: adjunct faculty earn a maximum quarterly stipend up to $175 for attending TLC programming. This allows for paid participation of up to six TLC events, compensated at the contract's non-instructional hourly rate of $26.88/hour.
To receive the stipend, all faculty need to do is complete a quarterly Affiliated Stipend form (available in the TLC) and sign in at each event. Stipends are paid at the end of the quarter, and the coordinator will contact all individuals eligible for stipends to confirm the amount near the end of the quarter. Please direct any questions to TLC coordinator.
