Part-Time Faculty Employment Best Practices

The State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) and the college system strives for world-class faculty and staff. Their contributions are critical to the quality and breadth of the colleges' educational programs. SBCTC and colleges work to provide fair compensation and working conditions for full-time and part-time faculty.

The resolution stated, in part, “... the State Board shall convene and facilitate a workgroup that includes faculty, faculty union representatives and college administrators to draft collective bargaining language reflecting the best practice principles that local bargainers may use in their negotiations."
