The Adjunct and Temporary Faculty Caucus invites the submission of creative programs, and interactive panels for the 2020 CSCA convention in Chicago-O’Hare, Illinois April 14-19, 2020. The purpose of the Caucus is to discuss and support the issues that are specific to Adjunct and Temporary Faculty in the academic world. Our Caucus seeks to provide adjunct/temporary faculty with support, guidance, and training, which connects nicely with this year’s convention theme of Borders & Breakthroughs.

Panels: We welcome submissions from everyone with an interest in shaping the future and capitalizing on the talents of adjunct, part-time, and temporary faculty members. We encourage a wide range of formats and topics, especially those developed based on the convention theme of Borders & Breakthroughs. Specific issues of interest to our group include: piecing together a paycheck: working at several institutions; work-life balance and overloads; losing adjuncts due to HLC; disbanding administration beliefs that anyone can teach online; programs that highlight stellar adjuncts/temp faculty; resources for new adjunct/temp faculty; adjuncts and veteran teachers sharing teaching methods; diversity issues; mentoring issues for new hires or graduate students; orientation of new faculty; curriculum vitae preparation; networking opportunities or a special program for adjuncts/temporary/part-timers. Short course submissions on any of these issues are also encouraged. Our Caucus urges Department Chairs and Basic Course Directors to encourage and support submissions from their adjunct/part-time faculty members.

All technology requests must be made at the time of submission.

Submissions must be received by October 11, 2019 – 11:59 p.m. CST.

Submissions for CSCA 2020 will begin August 1, 2019. You will find a link to the AI submission system at:
