Update the Charge for the Adjunct Affairs Committee in the Business of the Outstanding Adjunct Teaching Award Proposal
The Outstanding Adjunct Teaching Awards were established during the academic year of 2016-2017, and the Faculty Association Adjunct Affairs Committee members have been requested to serve on the Adjunct Teaching Award University Selection Committee and, therefore, its charge needs to be updated.
