Part-Time Faculty

MSCSA Contract:
The Nursing department may hire part-time permanent positions in Nursing.

Adjunct Undergraduate Faculty (Evening)

All Fitchburg State University Undergraduate Faculty members by virtue of their university appointment are eligible to teach in the Division of Continuing Education. In addition, membership on the Undergraduate Adjunct Faculty for Continuing Education is open, by invitation, to qualified and competent experts, external to the Fitchburg State University faculty, who possess skills, education, and experience in academic and/or professional areas, and who have taught a minimum of eight undergraduate courses during the previous three academic years. Undergraduate part-time faculty are recruited to teach courses for faculty who are on sabbatical or leaves of absence. 

Adjunct Undergraduate Faculty (Day)

Each semester, the university hires adjunct faculty members to teach additional sections of courses in the departments. The number of adjuncts each semester is based on need. Adjuncts typically have completed  a master’s degree in their field of specialization although many have doctorates. For some areas of specialization such as nursing and engineering technology, undergraduate adjuncts may have a bachelor’s degree and relevant experience. Faculty who teach three consecutive semesters at the university are identified as unit members under the contract.
