Adjunct Faculty at UCO

Central's adjunct faculty make an enormous contribution to helping students learn. The Center for eLearning and Connected Environments, Technology Resource Center, and Center for Excellence in Transformative Teaching & Learning work together to support adjuncts as they work with their students.

Realizing that adjunct teaching schedules can often bring them to campus only in the evenings, CETTL’s hours are 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday, recognizing that the hour before an evening class starts may be the only opportunity adjuncts have for in-person access to CETTL resources.

The Center for Excellence in Transformative Teaching and Learning and the Office of Academic Affairs are deeply committed to helping new and continuing adjunct faculty become ever more proficient teachers as they construct their career paths. The Adjunct Faculty Orientation was thoughtfully designed and meticulously planned by UCO faculty to meet the needs of adjunct faculty. The Adjunct Faculty Orientation is offered each Fall in August at two different times so you can choose the best time for you. One orientation will be 2.25 hours at lunch and the other will be 2.5 hours at dinner.
