Columbia College tenured faculty design program assessment, however adjunct faculty are instrumental in implementation because they comprise more than 75% of the teaching staff. The purpose of this session is to explore ways to engage adjunct faculty in the assessment process in spite of barriers presented by the nature of their positions. I plan to use my experiences with adjunct faculty to:
suggest strategies for engaging them in assessment and
to moderate a focused discussion with the audience members to generate additional ideas.
Because adjunct faculty are becoming more pervasive in higher education, the design and topic of this session will appeal to most assessment professionals attending the conference.

The agenda for the proposed session follows:
20 minutes: Introduction and review of current research on best practices and my strategies for working with adjunct faculty.
20 minutes: "World Cafe" style discussion of strategies for removing barriers and engaging.
15 minutes: Discussion of ideas from the groups.
5 minutes: Conclusion, summary, closure.
