Efforts Toward Inclusion at the University of North Georgia
This roundtable discussion will focus on the University of North Georgia’s faculty development efforts to support and include part-time, adjunct, and contingent faculty on five different campuses. These efforts encompass the university, campus, and departmental levels and are imperative to the success and well-being of all faculty, especially those who do not have permanent job security. Within this discussion, we will share information about our Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership’s (CTLL) part-time new faculty orientation and the workshops that part-time faculty are invited to attend. Further, we will outline campus and departmental programs, such as, teaching circles to discuss ideas, departmental websites to allow faculty to share resources, and campus social events that aim to foster a sense of community among faculty and staff. In addition, participants will gain insight into practices and ideas at other colleges and universities and share programs and practices that are successful in specifically supporting part-time, adjunct, and contingent faculty.
