non-tenure track Latin instructor to begin August 16, 2007. Two-year contract
with possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and the

instruction with computer-based instruction in a unique way that will both
improve learning outcomes and reach a larger audience. The new instructor

technology. Additional summer stipend is possible during the implementation
