The Adjunct Faculty Professional Growth Program (AFPG) is administered by the Maricopa Center for Learning and Innovation in the Academic and Student Affairs Division. The program provides Maricopa Community College's adjunct faculty members with financial reimbursement for attending external (outside of Maricopa County Community College District sponsored events) conferences, seminars, workshops, and professional meetings that are directly related to courses taught and that will enhance the adjuncts' teaching skills and their students' learning.
The applicant must be employed, currently teaching a course or be between courses, as an adjunct faculty for a credit course (at least one credit), or have a current service contract assignment for Library or Counseling adjunct faculty by one or more of the Maricopa Community Colleges.
Applicants who are between courses must have taught as adjunct faculty in Maricopa for a minimum of four of the last six semesters, and be scheduled to teach in the subsequent semester, verifiable in SIS or through notification from the department/division chair.
The applicant must NOT have previously been awarded funds in excess of the maximum individual funding level provided for the fiscal year (July 1 - June 30).
Maximum Reimbursable Amounts Per Fiscal Year
The maximum reimbursable amount is based on the total number of credits taught per academic year:
3 credit hours or more — $750
2 credit hours — $500
1 credit hour — $250
