By: Terese Rainwater, Project Manager

As part of the R1 Our Way suite of initiatives, the Adjunct Teaching Excellence Certificate Program (ATEP) launched in September. Virtual and in-person instruction is offered both synchronously and asynchronously. To meet the requirements of the certificate, adjunct faculty complete coursework offered in six competencies, including: 

  1. Teaching with Technology
  2. Inclusive Teaching
  3. Facilitation
  4. Designing for Learning
  5. Universal Design for Learning and Accessibility
  6. Professional Identity

Since the launch,

  • 129 faculty received invitations to participate in the program
  • 100 faculty have accessed the program
  • 68 faculty have spent measurable time in some part of the course
  • 8 faculty have completed 1 or more of the 6 modules


Adjunct faculty may enroll anytime during the academic year. Faculty who complete the certificate will be honored in spring 2023 and receive $250. We’re so glad you want to complete this teaching excellence program for part-time faculty!
