From the PAIA mission statement:
The Professional Adjunct Instructors Association is a nonprofit organization founded on the principle of recognizing and enhancing the value of the adjunct instructor’s role in higher education. We believe that many adjunct instructors possess a wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion to offer higher education institutions and their students. PAIA exists to facilitate the processes by which institutions maximize the potential adjunct instructors bring to higher education.
PAIA is committed to teaching as an art form, care for students, and improving the adjunct-institution relationship. Our primary focus is to provide adjunct instructors with resources to continually improve teaching and curriculum design skills with a student-oriented focus. Additionally, PAIA is dedicated to developing strong relationships with colleges and universities to ensure that our professional adjunct members meet the high standards set forth by these institutions.
