Adjunct Faculty

Adjunct faculty are those “whose primary professional responsibility is outside the University."  They are expected to contribute to the mission of the Department in at least one of the following ways: lectures, student mentoring, and/or collaboration with students and/or faculty.  Recent graduates may request adjunct status for three years. All other adjuncts are required to request renewal of status on an annual basis.  Department adjunct faculty are listed below in alphabetical order together with their primary professional affiliation and doctoral degree.
