Diegel, Betsy L.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Central Michigan University
This dissertation examines the similarities and differences in perceptions between division chair people and adjunct faculty regarding teaching support, mentoring, and professional development opportunities. Adjunct faculty have a significant presence in higher education institutions and need to feel supported so they are prepared to teach. A phenomenological approach, as well as an interpretvist lens, were used to gain insight on adjunct faculty and division chair people at one rural-based community college in the Midwest. Three division chairs are interviewed, along with five adjunct faculty from each of their departments, totaling 18 participants.
