Adjunct Academy Home
Adjunct instructors at CCC are part-time faculty engaged as non-tenure track instructors, teaching less than 15 contact hours per week and not employed in some other capacity by the College which, combined with their teaching responsibilities, would bring them up to a full-time position. Adjunct faculty are contracted on a semester-by-semester (or term) basis under the terms of a collective bargaining agreement between the College and the Adjunct Faculty Federation.
Most – but not all -- adjunct positions require a Master's Degree in a related field and some teaching experience at the college level. Requirements can vary, however, depending on the field of study. The first step in becoming an adjunct faculty member is to complete the online application and submit a resume at the Human Resources Department.
Your application will be reviewed by the department chair or program coordinator and an interview scheduled if appropriate. Adjunct faculty must have on file in the Office of Human Resources the following completed documents requested by the area dean's office upon hire:
• Application for Employment
• Official College transcripts
• Three letters of recommendation
• W-4: Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate
• I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification link to form
• Adjunct Faculty Data Form: Since the College uses information on this form in its database, adjunct faculty are required to update this form upon change of address, degree earned, etc.
• State of New Jersey Alternate Benefits Program (ABP) form
• Adjunct Pre-Employment Inquiry Release
• Compliance Forms
• Part-time Faculty Pension information
It is a state law that adjunct faculty who do not currently belong to the Public Employee Retirement System (PERS) and who teach one semester must be enrolled in the Alternate Benefits Program (ABP). Adjunct faculty must enroll at the beginning of their first semester. Deductions begin immediately. All adjunct faculty must file a state of New Jersey ABP application immediately upon beginning their first teaching assignment at the College. ABP applications will be provided by the academic area dean. Adjunct faculty currently enrolled in PERS with the College will have the option to remain in PERS or transfer to ABP. It is imperative the forms be completed and returned to the Office of Human Resources. The Office of Human Resources must receive the enrollment applications before the first pay installment is released. Failure to do so will result in a forced ABP enrollment.
Support for Adjuncts
Adjuncts are invited to attend an orientation program at the start of the fall and spring semesters
Instructor's Resource Guide
The Instructor's Resource Guide is a link located on the right-hand side of this page.
All new CCC adjunct faculty may request a mentor during their first semester at CCC. CCC mentors are outstanding faculty members who are selected on the basis of their ability to serve as a resource and positive role model for new faculty. These individuals acquaint new faculty with CCC as an institution, and they pass on to new faculty the teaching wisdom they have acquired over the years. Mentors do not serve as evaluators or judges of new faculty. Instead, they offer an insider's guidance and insights.
Teaching observation is one factor in total evaluation of academic performance of the adjunct faculty.
Periodically, and at the request of the program chair, The Office of Academic Support will conduct classroom observations of adjunct faculty members. Adjuncts who teach face-to-face courses shall be observed for at least one hour of one classroom session. Adjuncts who teach online courses must meet with an observer to provide a demonstration of their course shell prior to an observation. In the case of online and hybrid courses, the observer will evaluate one learning module asynchronously within 24 hours after the demonstration.
Professional Development - Teaching and Learning Center
The Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) at Camden County College inspires and enables faculty to enhance teaching potential and effectiveness so that students are more likely to achieve their desired learning outcomes. The Teaching and Learning Center serves as a focal point for college-wide efforts to support the improvement of teaching and learning.
Center for Civic Leadership and Responsibility
The CCLR offers interesting and thought-provoking mini-courses and events to help teachers meet their professional development requirements and for community members to enhance their knowledge. Its goal is to create an informed citizenry through exploration of humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and issues critical to a democratic society. Citizens have the opportunity to meet scholars, scientists, government officials and business leaders to explore historical and current issues and discuss societal problems and their solutions.
You can mix and match Center for Civic Leadership & Responsibility (CCLR) events with TLC workshops to fulfill your professional development requirement. Many CCLR events are held in the evening in Civic Hall on the Blackwood Campus.
CCC's Teaching Excellence Awards are given each year to outstanding adjunct faculty members who may be nominated by students, faculty, administrators or staff.
