We are pleased to welcome you into the Framingham State University community as a member of our part-time faculty. Your commitment to teaching and learning constitutes an important contribution to the academic excellence at Framingham State. Although you have been hired to fulfill a specific instructional need, we hope that your involvement will extend beyond your course(s) and that you will take advantage of opportunities available at the University. While nothing can substitute the day-to-day interaction among colleagues that is so crucial to our campus climate and success, we have provided you with the following Part-Time Faculty Handbook. This handbook has been written to help you in your work, inform you of available resources and services, and clarify your instructional role and obligations.
We welcome your feedback about the usefulness of this handbook. Please send any suggestions about the content or format of the resource guide to Dr. Ellen Zimmerman, Associate Vice President, at email@example.com.
