Event Date & Time
Welcome to UBC, new contract faculty! Welcome back to campus, returning contract faculty! Teaching on a contract is a challenging task as changes in our contracts, courses, and department policies remain a constant. Over a light lunch, we will exchange common challenges we face and explore possible interventions. We will share resources available to you on campus. Together, we will come up with a collective list of tips and resources for us all to share.
Sarika Bose teaches in the English Department and is the Chair of the UBCFA’s Contract Faculty Committee, which represents 8-month, 12- month and all other non- tenure track faculty at UBC.
