As the College continues to manage our budget, we are working to streamline the request, review, and approval process of visitor and adjunct requests. To help us be more responsive to departments and better plan the budget, we ask that all departments submit all visitor and adjunct fund requests in the CLAS Max 2.0 system for the fall 2022–spring 2023 academic year no later than February 1, 2022. We recognize this will be a tight turnaround for departments who have not already determined their spring 2023 course offerings, and we apologize for that.

We are reducing the College’s visitor and adjunct budget by 30% compared to the 2021-22 academic year. Please plan your requests accordingly. As requests are reviewed, the group will look at how each request supports balance across the General Education curriculum, how the course is required for majors, and overall enrollment.

Please attach an “airline seating chart” for your department for the full academic year with each CLAS MAX request, sample attached. If your department creates their own version of this chart or regularly uses a MAUI report (example: the Course Sections report) in your course planning, it is acceptable to upload that instead as long as it includes (1) a list of full course offerings by semester with instructor assignments and (2) a summary documenting overall faculty loads and showing full deployment of all instructors (faculty and TAs).

CLAS will not consider adjunct and visitor requests for the academic year after this February 1, 2022 deadline unless they meet one of the criteria for Emergency Requests: faculty illness, unplanned retirement/termination, or course buyout.

By streamlining the timing for visitor and adjunct funding requests, we will be able to best work within the budget and be more responsive to ensuring funding decisions are made prior to the start of early registration in the spring.

Thank you.
