ADJUNCT AFFAIRS RESOLUTION

 

Whereas, based on the UNF Adjunct Faculty Surveys conducted in 2003 and 2009, a prominent issue for adjunct faculty is lacking a feeling of inclusiveness in the campus faculty community. 

 

Whereas,  the Adjunct Affairs Committee has verified that currently most colleges do NOT invite adjunct or part-time faculty to attend college faculty meetings (4 of 5 colleges have not invited adjunct faculty to attend).

 

Whereas,  the Adjunct Affairs Committee has informally verified that college Deans are not opposed to inviting adjunct faculty to college meetings. 

 

Therefore be it resolved that henceforth an invitation to attend college faculty meetings (as non-voting participants) be extended to Adjunct Faculty as valued members of the UNF faculty community.
