The Baruch College Adjunct Faculty Handbook
Last updated on 12/26/2003
As an adjunct, if you teach two courses in a given semester or exceed six teaching hours per week, you will also be paid for one additional hour per week. The hour may be an office hour, or your department might require it for other purposes, like attending faculty meetings. If you are not told how to spend this time, it is important for you to discuss this with your chair.
Adjuncts are not usually required to attend faculty meetings and might not be compensated for that time; however you might find them helpful, interesting and enlightening.
Faculty meetings are a way to learn more about your department, the College and CUNY; to meet and get to know your colleagues, and to share information on your own work at Baruch. They could be a means to foster collaboration, exchange information and pick up tips. They are one of the ways that we can contribute and connect to Baruch.
Faculty meetings are usually held during regular business hours and often during club hours on Thursdays between 12:45 and 2:30PM when classes are not scheduled and when student clubs meet. Check to be sure you're on the distribution list for notification of department meetings and to receive minutes for those meetings.
