Likins authorizes contracts for part-time instructors
UA President Peter Likins lifted a ban yesterday on the hiring of adjunct professors for next semester.
The move - which comes more than two weeks before the end of a university-wide hiring freeze - means that departments will be able to offer contracts to part-time instructors needed to teach courses in the spring.
A memo issued yesterday by Provost George Davis stated that instructors can be hired as long as it is consistent with individual departments' plans for saving money.
