Part Time Lecturer/Coadjutant Resources


A Part-Time Lecturer (also referred to as a “PTL”) is an employee hired to teach either a full course (including a laboratory course) for one full semester or to teach a recitation section for a full semester, or at least two consecutive seven week courses in a semester.


Coadjutants (Coads) are individuals who either teach during the academic year and are otherwise regularly appointed employees with a 50% or more type 1 appointment, or individuals who teach less than a full semester during an academic year.
