Part time faculty

Post by dkramlich » Thu Nov 01, 2018 6:53 pm

Our program uses adjunct instructors for clinical experiences, not regular faculty. They are not called "faculty", and they are part-time employees. Should they be counted as PT faculty in the annual report? Or should we include only our actual faculty?

Great question!

I would say if the governing organization considers them "faculty" regardless of tenure-track status, then they can be enumerated as faculty. Ultimately, though, regarding faculty numbers and headcount, I would refer to the ACEN glossary's definitions vis a vis faculty, pt/ft, employee etc and use your best judgement.

The glossary can be accessed here: http://www.acenursing.net/manuals/Glossary.pdf

Thank you!
