I have been working at Grand Canyon University as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Students and staff are polite, respectful, and caring. Whole atmosphere is positive and very little stress. Hybrid approach (coursework on computer but students attend class) is very nice and makes teaching easier. The curriculum was already set up for me, which was nice, but I was encouraged to add my own information to it, which was even nicer. Had complete freedom to teach in any manner I chose within the framework I was given. LOTS of professional development opportunities. Collaborative environment. The absolute best students and the best teaching job I have EVER had.

Cons

Most instructors are adjunct so there is very little opportunity to work full time.

Advice to Management

Provide more full time, permanent opportunities for the better adjunct faculty members. Otherwise, keep doing what you are doing.

  1. I love GCU, however sometimes I feel that I am just a piece of a machine rather than a valued person.

    I worked at Grand Canyon University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The students as a whole were very motivated. There online format was not user friendly.

    Cons

    I came as a fairly new adjunct. The mentor assigned to me was disrespectful and not pleasant to work with. The pay is low; poor mentoring; communication poor; feedback poor. The culture was negative.

    Advice to Management

    Improve mentoring
