Adjunct Faculty Performance Awards and Excellence in Teaching Award
Keene State College may recognize up to 10 adjunct faculty members for the Performance Award in an academic year. Per the contract, adjunct faculty members who have been formally evaluated during the current academic year are eligible to be nominated. In addition, adjunct faculty for whom there has been no formal evaluation in the past four years because the adjunct faculty member’s semester of evaluation has not yet come up, that person may be nominated by the Department Chairperson or Dean based on student evaluations and other informally submitted materials. From those adjunct faculty earning a Performance Award, one will be chosen each year for the Excellence in Teaching Award. Information about the Adjunct Performance Awards and Excellence in Teaching Award is available here.
