Come Grow with UW-Stout

The University of Wisconsin-Stout maintains a pool of qualified individuals who would like to provide instruction to UW-Stout students. Individuals with experience and appropriate degrees in instructional areas offered at UW-Stout are encouraged to apply.

Adjuncts work on a part-time basis to augment the instructional needs that current staff is not available to meet. Adjunct instructors may be employed to teach courses, make presentations or provide facilitation or other service activity when UW-Stout faculty is not available.

Instructors will be chosen from the Adjunct Instructor Pool to participate in additional application/selection processes as specific needs arise. Appointments of adjunct instructors will be made through and will be subject to existing personnel rules.

UW-Stout department chairs and/or their peer committees will review applications to qualify adjunct applicants to be included in the pool. Individual department chairs may initiate additional qualification processes for individuals at their discretion.

  • A degree within the discipline an individual wishes to provide instruction

  • Teaching experience and past performance
  • Publication history
