    I worked at Long Island University part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Offers the benefits that you could expect at a large college campus. Gym, Library and theater are assets. Scenic campus with close proximity to NYC.

    Cons

    Part time employees are treated unfairly by the administration. No room for growth, the university seems less concerned with providing a quality education then it was in years past. Misappropriation of funds seems evident in some departments. Concern over expanding class size is resulting in combined classes which do not take into account the students needs, combining 100 and 200 level classes to ensure a higher student to teacher ratio is not a good way to educate students.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking more closely at hiring practices within departments. Avoid hiring easily manipulated graduate students. Be more concerned with quality education and long term development instead of increasing student to teacher ratios and cutting budgets that are already underfunded. Focus on standards and building a quality program instead of investing in new advertising campaigns and rebranding trends. Treat adjunct and part time faculty with respect and realize they are more often the most dedicated employees working for the university.
