arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Legislature finds and declares that community college part-time faculty are required to fulfill the same teaching responsibilities as full-time faculty although students have little or no access to part-time faculty members outside of the classroom. It is the intent of the Legislature that students have the same opportunity for academic assistance and guidance without regard to whether a course at a community college is taught by a full-time or a part-time faculty member. It is the further intent of the Legislature that community college part-time faculty teaching a minimum number of courses be compensated for providing academic counseling and assistance to students outside of the classroom.
