    Current Contractor - Lecturer (Adjunct Professor) in Fairfield, CT

    I have been working at Fairfield University as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, good office space and working atmosphere. A rare gem for adjunct work.

    Cons

    As in all adjunct work: relatively low pay (though Ffld U does better than most in the state), no guarantee of work from semester to semester.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider carving out true part-time positions for faculty who have proven track records of excellence in the classroom and commitment to students.
