IVCC Faculty Liaison Program
The Faculty Liaison Program matches full-time faculty with part-time faculty in order to orient part-time faculty to their role at IVCC, to review syllabi, to observe one class, and to serve as a College resource.
The application for Liaisons for the 2022-2023 academic year is open! Apply before September 1, 2022. Questions? Contact Dr. Gary Roberts.
SELECTION OF FACULTY LIAISONS
Liaisons must have the following qualifications:
- an openness to mentor part-time faculty, which may fall outside content area/discipline
- an embodiment of IVCC’s best instructional practices
- tenure status with 5 or more years of teaching experience
- not on an improvement plan
- an ability to travel to extension sites, area high schools, and evening sections
- an availability to commit to 3 meetings a semester
Full-time faculty must apply to be liaisons. The application consists of a written statement of interest (i.e., what brings you to this program, what experience with part-time faculty do you have, experience in a supervisory role). Applicants then interview with the Vice President of Academic Affairs (VPAA) before a determination of acceptance into the program will be made.
Faculty may be assigned more than one part-time instructor each semester as needed but no more than three. Assignments will be made by the VPAA who may consult the dean or the dual credit program coordinator.
Faculty liaisons are paid a stipend of $75 per course. The liaison stipend is processed upon the submission of all paperwork to the VPAA. There is reimbursement for mileage at the IRS rate.
Every course is to be systematically visited by a faculty liaison every four years based on the program rotation or when substantive course changes occur as determined by the Dean, which may include a newly approved instructor or changes to any of the following: textbook, learning outcomes, grading scale, and/or software. An observation rubric will be provided to the liaison, which addresses such areas as course content, course delivery, rigor, and assessment.
