Bringing part-time faculty together

The Adjunct Faculty Scholars Conference (AFSC) brings together part-time instructors for a day of professional development and networking. All adjunct faculty, at any university, are invited to attend this conference. Recent participants have included adjunct faculty from IU Southeast, Bellarmine University, Ivy Tech, Spalding University, Sullivan College, the University of Louisville, and other Indiana University campuses.

AFSC is a unique and valuable educational opportunity for faculty members who are interested in expanding their knowledge and engaging with others in their field. The conference will offer presentations from experienced instructors on a variety of topics, including research, teaching, and scholarship. There will be opportunities for networking, discussion, and learning about current trends and developments in education.
