Part-time Faculty Network

Purpose:
To contribute to a supportive professional environment for all part-time faculty at GVSU. The network is a professional organization that serves as an online resource and advocacy group.

Among the functions of the part-time faculty network (PTFN) are the following:

To provide a confidential forum for the discussion of issues important to part-time faculty.

To encourage and promote teaching effectiveness through a variety of
professional development opportunities.

To promote, stimulate and affirm part-time faculty in the life of the
university.

To advocate for part-time faculty as viable members of academic
departments via nomination for teaching awards and other recognition.

To provide feedback to the Director of Part-time Faculty and support on initiatives to improve working conditions for part-time faculty.

To foster job satisfaction and retention of part-time faculty university-wide.

The PTFN will be led by the Part-time Faculty Advisory Council (PTFAC),
a representative committee of part-time faculty selected by the Director of
Part-time Faculty Support, who meet regularly with the Director and the Provost’s office. There is no cost to join the network, simply email your contact information, and a brief note of interest to Dana Munk at munkd@gvsu.edu. Upon joining the network, you will have access to the PTFN blackboard site which will provide regular communication about part-time faculty affairs and other information relevant to faculty life at GVSU.
