Adjunct Faculty

The Department has adjunct faculty who consult and collaborate with the Department's faculty members in research and grant writing, and work with undergraduate and graduate students -- advising them, serving on their committees, and providing research sites. And, they contribute to national, international, and interdisciplinary perspectives. Adjunct faculty members have appointments outside the university.
