Adjunct Faculty are an integral part of teaching and community at PLNU. The Center for Teaching and Learning supports their teaching and community building through the workshops we provide. Adjunct Faculty Development Day, which occurs in the fall, is dedicated to this diverse, talented, and much appreciated group of faculty.
