USC defines two categories of appointment for faculty working less than fulltime. These are â€œadjunctâ€ and â€œpart-time.â€ The difference in the categories is primarily based on the nature of a faculty memberâ€™s professional work outside of teaching at USC.
Definition of Adjunct Faculty
USC reserves the â€œAdjunct Facultyâ€ appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time at USC
employed full-time in a primary profession or career elsewhere.
Adjunct faculty typically
teach only one course per year
but, in exceptional cases, may teach one course per semester, if approved by the dean. For example, a full-time freelance artist, a lawyer employed full-time at a firm, a pharmacist employed full-time by a pharmacy, or a consultant/entrepreneur/CFO who teaches 1-2 classes a year for USC would be considered an adjunct faculty member. A retired person who considers themselves fully retired, but teaches 1-2 classes a year for USC, could be considered Adjunct Faculty or Part-time Faculty.
Definition of Part-time Faculty
USC reserves the â€œPart-time Facultyâ€ appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time who are
employed full-time in a primary position or career elsewhere.
For example, a therapist with a part-time private practice, a musician who books performances on what they consider to be a part-time basis, a biologist who has a part-time job in a lab, or someone retired from a career who teaches less than full-time at USC could be considered â€œPart-time Faculty.â€ Part-time Faculty under this definition may teach a maximum of 3 courses per semester, and we hope to limit that to 2 courses per semester as full-time faculty numbers increase.
