New Initiative at Six ATD Colleges Harnesses Faculty Expertise to Improve Student Success

Six of Achieving the Dream Leader Colleges have been selected to participate in a new initiative to engage part-time faculty as active contributors to their colleges’ reform efforts under the leadership of full-time faculty.  The initiative will enable the participating community colleges to provide support for their adjunct faculty and create more opportunities for them to increase their knowledge of and satisfaction with professional learning and build awareness of campus resources and policies relevant to adjuncts. Policy changes could lead to improved orientation, stronger communication channels, allocation of resources, data collection and reporting, and common hiring and evaluation processes.

The colleges selected for the Engaging Adjunct Faculty in the Student Success Movement initiative are:

“Adjunct faculty voices are essential to community college reform efforts,” said Dr. Karen A. Stout, President and CEO of Achieving the Dream. “Colleges need to involve all faculty leaders, full-time and part-time, in creating systems that allow them to be fully engaged participants in the change process.”
