According to the Faculty and Staff Handbook, the adjunct faculty appointment carries with it certain privileges and may or may not involve compensation. Recommendations for non-teaching adjunct faculty appointments (or reappointments) that do not involve compensation should be made annually by letter from the appropriate dean to the Provost/Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. A current vita should accompany each recommendation.
Upon approval of the recommendation by the Provost/Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, a letter of appointment (or letter confirming reappointment) is sent to the appointee indicating the duration and any other stipulations of the appointment. Deans and chairs receive copies of such appointment letters.
Non-teaching adjunct faculty members are eligible to obtain a TCU I.D. card and enjoy other privileges of part-time faculty.
