Adjunct Faculty

Adjunct Online Instructor (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at University of Phoenix as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsGreat school to work with, and for in the Higher Education sector. Training is thorough, and helpful, we had a mentor throughout the first class. There are people immediately available to help if and when necessary. Lots of great resources for teaching too.

ConsMoney is not great, but typically one doesn't teach as an adjunct for the pay! Would be nice to receive more offers to teach (on a contract basis), but I do get at least one offer per year.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow those of us with time in as adjunct faculty to move into our area of expertise before hiring new faculty from outside (teaching general ed. classes right now).
