Retention of Adjunct Faculty in Community Colleges
Pearch, William J.; Marutz, Linda
Community College Enterprise, v11 n1 p29-44 Spr 2005
As community colleges struggle with keeping their disciplines and programs up-to-date, offer more courses to an ever-increasing student population, and battle shrinking budgets, adjunct faculty save the day (Roueche, Roueche, & Milliron, 1995). To retain quality part-time faculty members already employed in community colleges, as well as new hires that offset retirement of full-time faculty, careful strategies are absolutely necessary. The authors discuss a number of successful strategies.
