Let Your Voice Be Heard: Fill Out Your Adjunct Faculty Survey
Surveys were distributed on February 22,208, to adjunct faculty members who taught online or on ground at the Webster, Gateway, Westport, or Winghaven campuses during Fall 1 & 2 and Fall Semester. The survey, which can be completed anonymously, seeks adjunct faculty feedback about communications practices in your respective work areas.
This is part of an ongoing effort to stay in touch with adjunct faculty and ensure you are receiving the appropriate information and support you need to teach your courses efficiently and effectively. A summary of the findings will be shared with you.
The surveys were emailed to the addresses we have on record as being “primary.” If you can’t find it, please check your junk or spam folders, as well as your webster.edu address. Responses are due TOMORROW, March 9, 2018.
