Instructional Support Services

Building Access

Normal hours during the fall and spring semesters for most buildings are 7 a.m.–10 p.m., Monday–Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday when classes are in session with the exception of the library and art gallery, buildings are closed on weekends, unless used for scheduled classes or special events.

Administrative Secretaries

Services for IU Kokomo adjunct faculty are located in their respective department offices.

Material to be typed, copied, and/or duplicated should be given to the department support staff well in advance (and at least five working days) of the date on which the material is needed. Midterm and final examinations, and any other intricate or voluminous material, should be submitted two weeks before needed. Work submitted well before the time needed is welcomed and appreciated; such cooperation will provide the secretaries with ample time to turn out quality work.

Only examinations, handouts (please move these to the files section of Canvas if possible), and syllabi (this should be on Canvas) essential to a course should be duplicated at University expense and distributed free to students. Such syllabi or other materials should be of reasonable length. Copyright laws do not permit the duplication of sections of textbooks, workbooks, or periodicals for distribution to students.

The Administrative secretaries are to prepare institutional and professional work only and should not be asked to prepare personal material.

Supplies

Office and classroom supplies for all faculty members are available from appropriate department support staff.

When items needed are required to be purchased from an outside source, contact your chairperson/director for a purchase requisition form. This form must be completed and returned to the unit head for approval. If approved, it will then be submitted by the support staff.

Duplication Services

Faculty can submit material for duplication either to the department faculty support staff or directly to the Mailing and Duplicating Office (KO 044). Purdue faculty must submit through the department.

Material must be submitted to the duplicating area at least 24 hours before it is needed (excluding weekends).
A completed duplication request form, available from department secretaries or the staff in the Mailing and Duplicating office, must accompany material to be duplicated. Duplication Services is open from 8 a.m.–5 p.m., Monday–Friday. If you need to pick up duplicated materials after 5 p.m., please ask the Duplicating staff to deliver the materials to your department’s work room. Copy machines are located in each school in their faculty lounges/workrooms.  Since it is more expensive to use these, please check with your departments to see what volume should go to central duplicating. Please use your Crimson Cardto access the copier. Purdue faculty members need to contact Wanda Hunt, KC 139, to obtain an access code for the Purdue copier. 

Mail

Mailboxes for adjunct faculty who teach on campus are located in departments. Class roster audits and grade rosters will be available in One.IU.edu. Please pick up your mail weekly during the semester. Mail for Purdue part-time lecturers is available in KC 139. Contact 455-9375 for details.

Scantron

A scantron machine, for mechanical scoring of multiple choice and true/false examinations, is located on the third floor of the East Building (faculty lounge).  The scantron in the East Building is connected to a computer and has the ability to run more complex analyses. Blank answer sheets for the scantron can be obtained from the department secretaries.

Telephone Services

Calls for IU adjunct faculty and Purdue part-time lecturers should be directed to their respective department secretaries.

Adjunct Lounges

There is a nice adjunct lounge on the second floor of the main building KO218 for Humanities. It features three private offices for meeting with students.

Please consult with your department secretary to find out if your individual departments provide lounges, offices or spaces for your use. Office supplies may be obtained through your departmental secretaries.

The room is generally open Monday - Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. when classes are in session. If the room is closed, instructions on how to obtain the key are posted on the bulletin board next to the door.

In addition, CTLA conducts new adjunct orientation and training classes in instructional technologies, including Canvas, as well as brown bag discussions and other workshops for faculty and adjuncts. CTLA also sponsors the annual adjunct faculty dinner, usually held the week before classes begin in the fall.  Invitations are sent by the academic departments to all adjunct faculty members.
