    Many supportive individuals working for the good of the students

    Lack of leadership, not open to innovation, low pay

    Pay your employees. Make sure your Directors, Deans, and Managers are actually leaders and not sabotaging the efforts of hard working staff.

    "Adjuncts beware"

    Neutral Outlook

    Pros

    Total freedom for adjunct professors.

    Cons

    That freedom comes with a price: You will be given zero - that's ZERO - input from the department head and 90 percent of other professors will ignore you or be completely unhelpful. Organization is a joke. One year after I left, I received an e-mail from my department head asking why I hadn't shown up on the first day of the new semester. I had to email her and tell her I left a year earlier. She blamed the mistake on her sabbatical, but a sabbatical can't write my name into a schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who are effective administrators in addition to being academics. Pay adjuncts a living wage - the hours you put in planning, teaching, and grading mean you'll earn less than minimum wage in the end.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Lasell College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lasell is a great liberal arts school that allows and encourages for staff and faculty to continue profession pursuits, professional development, and further both the educational platform in which they teach and the student's understanding of the world

    Cons

    The only con I see as a professor is the lack of performing arts based degrees for students who wish to have a more specific minor/second major in a particular art form

    Advice to Management

    Expand the possibilities for students to be engaged in the arts and learn music, visual art, without forcing students to choose between their major concentrations and other pursuits.
