Part-Time Instructor Resources

Welcome to Austin Peay State University! We are delighted to have you as a part of the Governor community. This website exists to enhance faculty and student engagement practices at APSU. We will specifically provide information that will assist adjuncts, part-time and temporary instructors in their teaching at APSU by providing an overview of guidelines, policies, classroom guidance, and campus resources. Please consider this as a broad overview to guide newly hired adjuncts, part-time and temporary instructors, enlighten prospective and provide a quick reference tool for our more experienced adjunct faculty. 

It is important that Austin Peay's adjunct, part-time and temporary faculty understand how much they are valued and the significance that they hold on campus. After all, our adjunct/part-time faculty make up a third of APSU teaching staff! We are here to answer any questions you may have as well as guide you on your teaching journey.  If you have specific questions about your teaching assignment(s) and/or departmental norms and procedures, please contact your department chair and/or program director. 

Austin Peay is a comprehensive university and our mission is to prepare students to be engaged and productive citizens, while recognizing that society and the marketplace require global awareness and continuous learning. This mission will be accomplished by:

APSU has a vision to create a collaborative, integrative learning community, instilling in students habits of critical inquiry as they gain knowledge, skills, and values for life and work in a global society.

We could not accomplish this mission and vision without your assistance and are excited that you have chosen to teach at Austin Peay!
