Teaching Part-Time at Mercer

As a part-time instructor, you are integral to teaching and learning at Mercer. You are part of Mercer's mission, which is to teach, to learn, to create, to discover, to inspire, to empower, and to serve. If you are teaching one or more classes on a part-time basis, this website is designed for you and offers information on resources available to help you teach with excellence.

Critical dates, handbooks, and emergency information are linked on the right, and the left sidebar menu offers more resources for important contacts, teaching advice, library resources, and end-of-semester procedures. Below, information is provided on necessary Human Resources paperwork and how you can utilize Mercer Information Technology. Since you may be teaching in one or more of Mercer's 12 colleges and schools, check with your coordinator or administrator for procedures and policies specific to the course or courses you are teaching.
