Students Teaching

Students matriculating through any program at Bastyr University may not be hired as a faculty member to teach their fellow students within the same program. This includes advanced-standing students.

Master's students can be hired to teach students in a bachelor track within the same program. Graduate students in separate degree programs may teach if not concurrently dually enrolled.

Due to the inherent conflict of interest in being both a student and a faculty member, a student who is in an instructional role at the University may not be permitted to have some of the same privileges as adjunct faculty. Examples include attending faculty council, attending faculty program meetings or being listed in the catalog. The supervising program chair or dean will determine which rights and privileges students acting as adjunct faculty will be allowed.
