Engaging Adjunct and Full-Time Faculty in Student Success Innovation. Cutting Edge Series. No. 1
Community colleges are facing tough challenges, and engaging faculty members--both full-time and adjunct--in the hard work of meeting these challenges is critical. Colleges can reap major benefits from meaningful engagement with faculty, yet many institutions find it difficult to do. In partnership with Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count, Public Agenda has developed core principles and promising practices for engaging faculty in changing institutions and closing student achievement gaps. This new Cutting Edge Series paper, "Engaging Adjunct and Full-Time Faculty in Student Success Innovation," builds on the existing work in faculty engagement and is based on fresh research with higher education experts and community college faculty. A faculty engagement resource list is appended.
