The Part-time Faculty Advisory Council is a volunteer group that collaborates closely with the Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center and serves in an advisory role to the Provost’s Office.

Council members take a leadership role in establishing advocacy networks on campus and planning professional development events to help part-time faculty achieve teaching excellence.

Dana Munk, director of part-time faculty support, said the council’s goals for this year include advocating for systematic performance reviews and exploring potential avenues for the inclusion of part-time faculty members in department, college, and university governance committees and initiatives.
