Adjunct Faculty Resources
Adjunct Teaching at Maryville
Many institutions depend on adjunct or part-time faculty to teach certain courses. Dr. Tammy Gocial, Associate Vice-President for Academic Affairs, points out that adjunct faculty collectively represent approximately 50% of the teaching that takes place at Maryville University.One of her major responsibilities is to work with the adjunct faculty to learn more about them and find more and better ways to support and help them connected to Maryville.At Maryville, most of our adjunct faculty came equipped with their professional experiences integrating them into their classroom teaching. They bring diversity in the classroom with their professional expertise relevant and appropriate to the courses they are teaching. Maryville recognizes the valuable contribution adjunct teaching makes to the learning of our students. This site is created and maintained to provide valuable information and resources to connect and support adjunct faculty in their teaching and professional growth and development.Faculty Resources
