    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Johnson County Community College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The environment fosters learning and collaborating. Faculty and staff work across disciplines to provide courses and develop degree programs that will serve students in the 21st century.

    Cons

    State funding has caused problems for all education institutions since 2008. JCCC has responded by making cuts, eliminating jobs through attrition, much like any other business. Leadership needs to closely examine the budget and earmark dollars appropriately.

    Pros

    Despite the inherent drawbacks of adjunct instruction, JCCC is a great place to teach. Outstanding training is available, top-notch technical support if offered, and, compared to other institutions, the pay is reasonable.

    Cons

    No access to insurance for part-time professors. Little to no opportunity for full-time positions.
