Q:Why is most of the courses professors are "STAFF"? When are they going to post the actual professor. It's hard to enroll to a course that i don't even know who the teacher is.
Courses designated “Staff” will often (but not always) be taught by adjunct faculty. However, adjuncts are not hired until all sections taught by full-time faculty are finalized. In some cases, full-time faculty schedules for the coming semester are not finalized until the closing weeks or days of the current one. Questions about specific classes and instructors should be addressed to the department chair.
