    I have been working at San Jacinto College part-time (more than 10 years)


    The instructors in my department were highly skilled in their field of expertise and truly dedicated to helping students succeed. If you have a full-time job during the day or your financial situation allows you to teach part-time it is reasonably good work.


    Like most community colleges, San Jac tries to hire as few full-time instructors as possible. Adjunct instructors are paid between a fourth and a third of what full-time instructors are paid for the same work. This figure does factor in the additional time required of full-time faculty. There is a balancing act for the college, however, because SACS accreditation metrics penalize the college for having too many courses taught by adjuncts.

    Do not expect that teaching as an adjunct will lead to a full-time position at San Jac. The problem is that for every full-time position that opens up (which is itself rare), there are 5 other, equally-qualified people who have taught as adjuncts at the college for multiple years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your administration, which was already top-ready in the 2000s has become even more so. Moreover, you are alienating your best faculty, some of whom are considering taking early retirement, rather than endure an increasingly unpleasant workplace.
