SUBJECT:   Report of the Task Force on Criteria for Appointment and Advancement in the Adjunct Professor Series

In April 2010, a joint Senate/Administration Task Force was convened to evaluate the criteria for appointment and advancement in the Adjunct Professor series. The task force was asked to identify practices that will enable the campus to equitably apply standards for appointees in the Adjunct Professor series across campus, especially for those holding non-salaried Adjunct Professor appointments. The task force has completed its study and submitted the report of its findings. I am pleased to inform you that the report is available at the following Web site:

I encourage you to read the report and to provide comments on the task force's recommendations. Comments should be sent to Kelly Lindlar, Director, Academic Policy Development at klindlar@ucsd.edu by Friday, December 10, 2010. Once all comments are collected, we will begin to consider the implementation of the reportís recommendations.
