    Pros

    Great support staff, really excellent deans/associate deans, very dedicated faculty. Everyone is kind and very helpful. Very generous support of professional development for adjuncts. Most university ignore their adjuncts, but VIU (perhaps because all or almost all faculty are adjuncts) really knows how to support them and make teaching here a pleasant experience.

    Cons

    No opportunity to move from being an adjunct to full-time faculty. Students are sometimes allowed to move too quickly through their programs, even if they are not ready to move to the next level. As a young university, it is still growing and making adjustments to policies and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Hire full-time faculty!
