Field Instructor and Education Coordinator Adjunct Lecturer Appointments (Status Only)

Status-only or Adjunct appointments are held by individuals who are employed outside of the University of Toronto.  According to University of Toronto guidelines, these are non-salaried and non-continuing academic appointments which may be given to individuals whose skills and expertise can advance the academic mission of the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work.

Adjunct appointments are normally held by individuals who are employed elsewhere in a position that is not primarily academic in nature, who have special skills or learning of value to the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and who may provide services for which recognition is desirable.

In recognition of the critical teaching role that field instructors provide, and to assist Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work plan for practicum opportunities, field instructors who commit to three consecutive years of field instruction placements of MSW students of the Faculty or who supervise students for three consecutive semesters, are eligible to apply for Adjunct Lecturer appointments.
