Adjunct Faculty

DU occasionally hires adjunct faculty members to fill particular needs. Each division, college, and school within the University has its own unique culture, so specific requirements for adjunct faculty members will vary. If you are a newly hired adjunct faculty member, the department chair or program director of the division, college, or school where you will be teaching is the person you should ask if you have any questions about University policies, curriculum, course content, etc.
