During the last round of negotiations, the Faculty Association raised concerns with the Administration around access to campus resources leading up to and following sessional appointments. It has been clarified that sessional instructors should have access to email, the bookstore, the library, and D2L as soon as their appointments are finalized, and they have their UCard. Following the conclusion of the appointment, sessional instructors continue to have access to email and D2L for 12 months.
If any sessional instructors have issues with accessing any of these services as described above, they can contact the Integrated Service Centre who will be able to address the issue by either following up with the Faculty to ensure the appointment is finalized and entered, and/or with IT if there are any system access issues. Members can also reach out to the Faculty Association for guidance and/or assistance with these concerns.
