Adjunct faculty invited to April 13 AURCO Conference at OU Lancaster campus

AURCO 2013 POSTERAdjunct faculty are invited to attend the Association for the University Regional Campuses of Ohio (AURCO) Conference on Saturday, April 13, at Ohio University’s Lancaster campus.

The theme is “Investing in Our Future,” and the conference runs from 8 a.m.-3:45 p.m.

To encourage participation by adjunct faculty, their registration fee has been reduced to $25, from the standard registration of $99 charged to full-time faculty.

The Association for the University Regional Campuses of Ohio (AURCO) and the Ohio Part-Time Faculty Association (OPTFA) are co-sponsoring a special track of presentations at this year’s conference to be devoted to the professional interests and concerns of adjunct faculty. To this end, adjunct faculty from Kent State University will be part of a panel discussion from 10 – 11:45 a.m.

Information on the conference registration and available lodging is provided on the AURCO website, along with a draft copy of the conference program.

For presenters staying overnight, there is a 6 – 7 p.m. wine and cheese reception and an arts program on Friday evening.
Overnight accommodations for conference participants are available at nearby hotels at reduced rates.

The Lancaster Campus is located at 1570 Granville Pike, Lancaster, OH 43130.

AURCO was founded in 1993, so this is the 20th anniversary of the organization. Its annual conferences are notable for their friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
