part-time adjunct faculty to join a pool of qualified instructors. This is “as
needed” employment perfect for retired faculty or any qualified instructor who
appreciates the unique environment created when teaching to adult students.
Adjunct positions are offered to candidates based not only on their academic and

weekends and ability to travel to other locations.
