  • Resources provides SUNY Fredonia websites, documents, contact information, and award opportunites.

  • UUP provides literature from your union, United University Professions, that advocates for all of its constituents, including contingents/adjuncts.

(This site is a collective effort and updated regularly. Feel free to email website suggestions to rodney.garrison@fredonia.edu.)

 

Oct. 2017: The Fredonia University Senate passed a ConFac resolution to invite other SUNY institutions to petition the SUNY University Faculty Senate to create three separate subcategories for the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching—one award for tenure-stream faculty, one award for full-time contingent faculty, and one award for part-time contingent faculty—with criteria tailored to promote fair competition within each appointment type. As it currently stands, full-time contingent faculty must compete with tenure-stream faculty for the same award. 

Feb. 2016: A Special Congratulations
