Workload review by New Hampshire Community Colleges could mean reduced hours for some adjunct faculty members

The Telegraph
New Hampshire Community College officials are reviewing the “appropriate workload” for adjunct professors, which means reduced hours for some part-time community college faculty in Nashua.

“There are best practices that govern what the workload should be for adjunct faculty,” said Shannon Reid, director of communications for the New Hampshire Community College System. “We’re looking at what those best practices are and what works best for our adjunct faculty and our instructional needs.”

Although Reid said nothing has been decided yet, Nashua Community College President Lucille Jordan said Friday that she has already imposed new limits on the credit hours that adjunct faculty will be working in the upcoming spring semester.

Adjunct faculty are professors who are not tenured and are hired on a semester-by-semester basis. They are paid per course they teach and do not receive benefits.

Jordan said adjunct faculty shouldn’t be working any more than 12 to 15 credit hours in a semester, or three to four courses. There are 134 adjunct faculty working at the college and the change would reduce the workload, and pay, of 14, Jordan said.
