The interaction with students and personal satisfaction is great; however, opportunities for advancement do not exist.

Contract Lecturer (Current Employee)
Thunder Bay, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Lakehead University

ProsGreat students, good overall atmosphere, close-knit environment, good colleagues, close to all amenities of living, relatively small class sizes, autonomy.

ConsUniversity is too small to allow contract lecturers and part-time faculty to advance in their careers; management does not communicate with such employees sufficiently.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen cutbacks are required, please consider the students. Lakehead has always prided itself on small class sizes, so cutting back on front line lecturers is not a good idea. Consider cutting back at layers of administration instead.
