I worked at College of Marin as a contractor
Relaxed atmosphere; Experienced, well-trained faculty; Mature & motivated students;
Physical plant in poor condition (as of late 2013); Equipment related to teaching in poor condition.
Upper level faculty given too much authority to fire lower level faculty without due process...that includes teaching faculty who have many positive student evaluations over a 10 yr period of time.
Advice to Management
Develop a clear-cut policy that utilizes fairness & due-process in hiring & firing faculty.
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at College of Marin (Kentfield, CA) in March 2013.
I met the chair of the department with my art portfolio. He liked my works and expressed the need to hire me as a substitute art faculty since they need substitute teachers at all the time.
