Longtime adjunct faculty honored for service to the campus

9/5/2011 —



Thirty-seven long time adjunct faculty at Penn State New Kensington were honored Aug. 18 for service to the campus.

A staple of most colleges and universities, adjunct faculty supplement the teaching loads of full-time faculty. The part-time instructors specialize in a variety of disciplines. The honored faculty members  received a certificate noting their contributions to the campus.

“We are very fortunate to have a group of adjunct faculty who are loyal to our campus and who continue to serve the educational needs of the campus,” said Arlene Hall, director of academic affairs. "Each semester, selected courses are delivered by adjunct faculty who often are able to add important perspectives related to the practical application of disciplinary knowledge."

Adjuncts at the New Kensington campus were recognized for service of five years or more. Rob Farinelli, who teaches statistics and David Wohleber, an instructor in chemistry and computer science, top the list with 21 years of service. Carol Dilliott (Nutrition) followed with 20 years of service.

Gifts from corporate supporters count toward the goals of For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students. This University-wide fundraising effort is directed toward a shared vision of Penn State as the most comprehensive, student-centered research university in America. The University is engaging Penn State’s alumni and friends as partners in achieving six key objectives: ensuring student access and opportunity, enhancing honors education, enriching the student experience, building faculty strength and capacity, fostering discovery and creativity, and sustaining the University’s tradition of quality. The campaign’s top priority is keeping a Penn State degree affordable for students and families. The For the Future campaign is the most ambitious effort of its kind in Penn State’s history, with the goal of securing $2 billion in private support by 2014. Penn State New Kensington's goal is $3 million.
