Adjunct Faculty Support

What are Adjunct Faculty Resources


The term “adjunct faculty” describes a professor who is hired on a temporary basis, often to teach only a course or two for a single semester or year. Adjuncts typically teach reduced course loads as compared to their more permanent peers. Here at PVCC we want to support our adjuncts by providing them with as many supports and resources as our full-time faculty or employees. We value and appreciate our adjuncts. We provide and encourage a variety of professional development opportunities. As you explore this site you will find many resources to get you started on the right path.

Professional Development


Ready, Set, Go!

You have just been hired. Now what? This learning opportunity is to prepare new adjunct faculty for their first few weeks of class. You will have the opportunity to learn some basic teaching and learning techniques to start your class off right. You will learn about your students, discuss some common classroom management strategies, and get connected with all your technology-based systems (MEID#, email, SIS, Course Roster). This session is offered at the beginning of each semester.
