Adjunct faculty members are normally appointed at the lowest salary in the rank for which they qualify: Adjunct Lecturer for people without doctoral degrees and Adjunct Assistant Professor for people with doctoral degrees or other terminal degree. Requests to hire new adjuncts at higher salary levels must be approved by the Dean in consultation with other administrative offices as needed. They should be addressed to the Dean and should include information about the adjunct’s background, previous teaching or special experience, and the course(s) he or she is scheduled to teach for the semester. Adjunct salaries increase according to a formula based on the number of semesters of service. Detailed information on eligibility for adjunct salary increases is available in Article 24 of the PSC-CUNY Contract.
