Part-Time Faculty Institute
Part-time faculty can enhance their teaching skills, meet and earn a stipend by participating in the Part-Time Faculty Institute (PTFI), a program designed especially for the needs of part-time faculty. The PTFI provides UofL's part-time faculty with tools and resources to help them become even more effective educators in the classroom. Participants in any of the sessions will find them beneficial to their teaching. The Institute offers four sessions each academic semester.
Incentive Payment Process
Part-time faculty who complete three sessions in an academic semester are eligible for a $200.00 stipend and will receive a certificate of completion confirming participation in the Part-Time Faculty Institute. Successful participants are eligible for a $200.00 stipend (each semester) and can receive a transcript verifying their participation. No other Delphi program substitutes will be permitted.
Rules for Participation
- Participants must complete three of the four sessions within an academic semester (fall or spring) in order to qualify for the stipend. Part-time faculty who successfully complete the semester program will be eligible for a $200.00 stipend.
- Part-time faculty who are already full-time staff, either monthly or classified (hourly), do not qualify for incentives. P&A; staff working at 80% or more and ALL classified (hourly) staff are ineligible for incentives. Participants must be actively teaching at UofL during the semester for which credit towards the incentive is accrued.
- A maximum of 25 faculty members may participate in any PTFI session. Participants are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, via electronic registration.
Part-time faculty who complete three sessions in a single academic semester (fall or spring) are eligible for a $200 incentive and can request a transcript verifying their participation.
Schedule of Sessions
Sessions are held on Thursday evenings and will begin promptly at 5:30, ending at 7:30 p.m. at the Delphi Center, Room 244, Ekstrom Library. Due to university-wide spending freezes, we are currently unable to provide food for this program. However, the room will be available at 5 p.m.. We encourage you to bring your own meal and spend some quality time networking with faculty colleagues. Announcements will begin at 5:15 p.m. If you wish to park at the Speed Museum garage, which is next to the library, we can provide you with a parking pass.
