- Hold regular office hours for students involved in classes taught. A minimum of three posted office hours each week is required. These office hours should be dived over at least two days. The lecturer should be available for reasonable appointments if a student cannot meet during scheduled office hours. Attend at least one professional development workshop annually.

Rationale: As the Humanities and Western Civilization Program prepares to offer HWC 175 Kansas Environment and Culture for an increasing international student population and to administer LA&S 474 Senior Seminar for the non-major BGS, additional resources are needed both for the design and implementation of these courses. We believe that a combination lecturer/administrative associate position, with emphasis on teaching but with some administrative duties will address those needs
