Part-time adjunct instructors are important in helping ensure our students receive a quality education.
The adjunct instructor compensation schedule credits and rewards adjunct instructors who possess terminal degrees, who teach higher-level classes, and/or who maintain a long-term relationship with Lindenwood University. While the compensation schedule represents a significant financial investment, this commitment is consistent with the value and regard Lindenwood University has for its adjunct instructors.
Adjunct Instructor Fair
The Lindenwood Learning Academy presented the first annual Adjunct Instructor Fair this spring. Instructors were invited to participate in informational sessions led by our Title IX Coordinator, Writing Center, HR, Academic Technology Services, and many others. Food was provided along with door prizes and a chance to win a wellness basket that included a Fitbit! The fair was a booming success and we plan to continue to offer development opportunities in the coming days!
Annual Adjunct Conference
Lindenwood holds an annual adjunct instructor conference. This conference introduces adjuncts to the leaders of the university, features guest speakers, and creates opportunities for engagement and collaboration with the academic colleges in which each adjunct instructor will teach.
An Adjunct of the Year recognition is awarded to the instructor that has demonstrated a strong commitment to student success.
