Adjunct faculty members are part-time teaching faculty who teach one or more classes on an occasional basis. The degree to which adjunct faculty participate in daily campus life is limited. They are appointments of the Dean of the College.  The date that follows the listing of each adjunct indicates the beginning year of service at Trinity.
