This interactive session will focus on issues faced by academic administrators and faculty development staff in supporting and mentoring adjunct faculty. It will review steps we have taken at our institution to engage adjunct faculty through onboarding and ongoing development activities.

Three key takeaways for attendees are:
(1) To learn about the benefits of effective adjunct mentorship, including improved teaching effectiveness, retention, and job-satisfaction.
(2) To identify major themes for new adjunct orientation and methods for presenting these using online resources.
(3) To explore best practices for supporting adjunct faculty, including synchronous and asynchronous activities.

Through presentation, discussion, and hands-on activities, participants should leave the session engaged with innovative tools and strategies needed to effectively support and mentor adjunct faculty.
