Welcome to King’s!
This web site should be used only as a quick reference guide. For more detailed information, consult the PART-TIME FACULTY HANDBOOK which is available in print and on line. The contents include the College's Mission Statement, Contracts, Academic Policies and Procedures, Professional Policies and Procedures, Guide to Campus Offices and Services, and a Campus Directory.
Cecelia Taylor, Coordinator for Part Time Faculty, is available to help with any questions you may have. The office is located in the Administration Bldg. (Rm. 325B), ext. 5217, firstname.lastname@example.org.
For detailed information about specific department policies, consult the Department Chairperson.
CLASS CANCELLATIONS BY FACULTY
Faculty who are unable to meet their classes must notify by phone or e-mail the Academic Affairs Office (208-5895), as well as the Faculty Assistants in Hafey-Marian and McGowan Halls if the class meets in either of those buildings.
CLASS ROSTERS AND TEACHING SCHEDULES
Class rosters and teaching schedules are available on-line through Web Advisor. Password and instructions to Web Advisor are mailed by the Registrar's office to the faculty member's home.
In case of severe weather, information about the College closing or Compressed Schedule can be obtained from local radio and TV stations, the College Weather Hotline (208-5979), or the college's website.
Contracts are issued by the Academic Affairs Office. Contracts are e-mailed to the faculty member, along with a letter detailing the procedures to be followed concerning signing the contract and withholding tax forms. All paperwork must be submitted to the Academic Affairs Office (Rm. 325, Admin. Bldg.). It is important to do so in a timely fashion since ID cards, parking permits and pay cannot be issued until this is done.
Meals are available in the Susquehanna Room (Administration Bldg), Connerton's Cafe and the Marketplace (Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center) and Leo’s on Mane (Gateway Comers.). Meal plan options are available through the Dining Service Office (ext. 5833). For full details and hours of operations, consult the Part Time Faculty Handbook.
ID cards are issued at the time of employment and facilitated through the Academic Affairs Office. Pictures are taken and cards issued in the Residence Life Office in the Sheehy Farmer Campus Center. This card is needed for the use of the gym, library borrowing privileges, bookstore discount and free tickets to King's theater productions.
Parking permits are issued by the Security Office (ext 5926) located in the basement of Luksic Hall. A refundable $25.00 deposit is required. Parking assignments are based on seniority.
