There are 10 Core Competencies™ that constitute the body of knowledge adjunct faculty need to function effectively as educators in higher education settings. The competencies emerged from more than 300 class observations and peer reviews conducted by Dr. Santopoalo. In addition, an exhaustive literature review and in-depth discussions with adjunct faculty and administrators employed in higher education settings were used to confirm and refine the areas of competency. SoCAFE’s 10 Core Competencies™ were designed to address the general population of adjunct faculty regardless of the discipline they teach; the level of their students; or the setting where learning occurs (i.e. classroom or distance education).
