Community Colleges Can Foster Student Success by Supporting Their Adjuncts
A recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education suggests that “Community Colleges Can Foster Student Success by Supporting Their Adjuncts“:
[A new report says that] when community colleges fail to support the part-time faculty members who teach more than half of the classes offered at such institutions, they are fostering a culture that creates a barrier to student success….
The report suggests that community colleges have conversations about how to support adjunct faculty members, include them in discussions, create clear pathways to full-time employment, and recognize part-timers’ accomplishment with additional pay when possible….
“Colleges need to do a better job of working with part-time faculty because engaging all faculty is a vital step toward meeting college-completion goals,” the report says.
