INTRODUCTION It was a sunny afternoon in early September. The leaves outside the conference room were just beginning to hint at the promise of fall. A dozen people, hired to teach as adjunct instructors at this business school, filed into the wood-paneled room whose big windows overlooked the city center. They brought varied backgrounds and levels of experience to the job. Some were already teaching at other institutions of higher education in the area; one was a stay-at-home mother with preschool-aged children; another was an accountant for a large firm. They met that day to learn about the business school at this large, bustling university. The orientation was designed to help them become successful in their initial ventures into the world of college teaching at this urban university.
