In November 2010, the Center for Teaching & Learning organized a task force composed of adjunct faculty, charged with the task of offering advice on how part-time faculty might share teaching practices and to propose mechanisms for improving teaching services.

    The resulting Adjunct Task Force worked through the beginning of the fall 2011 semester, and produced a report:

    Improving the adjunct faculty experience at Queens College (PDF)

    The report offers nineteen recommendations, related to three areas for improvement:

    • access to college information, communications, and resources;
    • adjunct representation and community; and
    • professional opportunities and development.
