Visiting Faculty Job Description

Visiting faculty are lecturers or professors who teach courses at a university that are not affiliated with their home university or department.

They are paid from the university's budget rather than their own.

Visiting faculty are usually lecturers or professors with extensive experience in their field.

They may be brought in to teach courses that may not be offered at the university, or to supplement a course that is offered.

Visiting faculty may be appointed to a term position, or they may be appointed for a limited amount of years.

If they are appointed to a term position, they are typically expected to teach the courses they were hired for.
