Adjunct Faculty Information

It is important that the University's mission be supported by qualified job applicants, with a safe and secure environment for all constituents, including students, visitors and employees. The University conducts background checks on all regular full-time and part-time employees.

When enrollments indicate that additional faculty support is required, adjunct faculty may be temporarily hired to fill this need. Employment is an agreement for one semester or term executed between the adjunct faculty member and the appropriate university administrator. Each semester, all departments must send an Adjunct to Hire Memo to Academic Affairs for each returning adjunct teaching in that department (all other forms should already be in Academic Affairs.) If the adjunct has not taught at JU for more than 18 months, all new documentation will be needed.

Required completed documentation to hire Adjunct Faculty should be submitted to Academic Affairs. The required forms may be found under the Faculty Information section.

Adjuncts should refer to the Adjunct Handbook for answers to questions they may have.
