HAPS definition of Contingent Faculty


Contingent Faculty:  to include part-time faculty, temporary contract length faculty, and faculty teaching at more than one institution to achieve full-time employment.


HAPS recognizes that the changing demographics of higher education make previous definitions of terms like "adjunct faculty" simply not relevant today.  As a result the board has voted to recognize a new group many are calling Contingent Faculty, and give this group the discounts we previously reserved for "part time" faculty.  If you meet the definition above, please be sure to look at our reduced membership rates and targeted scholarships.
