DCCCD offers a unique Visiting Scholar program for faculty, plus adjunct faculty positions for educators who wish to teach part-time and have an opportunity to obtain required teaching experience, congruent with Southern Association of Colleges and Schools teaching requirements. Visiting Scholars Program History In 1999, DCCCD established a Visiting Faculty Scholars Program to fill positions on a temporary basis. Beginning in spring 2000, the district implemented a program to promote the Visiting Scholar program. Each college may receive up to $20,000 annually for each visiting scholar (up to three per location). In addition, each location cabinet member may request up to $10,000 per location, per fiscal year, to support visiting scholars in the form of mentoring, teaching and/or other developmental activities.This program has been nationally recognized for best practices by the College and University Professional Assocation for Human Resources, the Community College Business Officers and the League for Innovation in the Community College. This is the only program of its specific type in higher education throughout the United States.What is the nature of a Visiting Scholar position?The Visiting Faculty role is a temporary appointment, recommended for up to two full academic years, by the college or location president. It is usually full-time, and at least 50 percent of normal load, but may vary due to the specific needs of the location. Visiting faculty will be expected to perform all normal functions as assigned to other employees in like positions. Such functions may include office hours, graduation attendance, etc.
We recruit adjunct faculty from a variety of sources, such as personal referrals, college and district adjunct faculty recruitment fairs, and our adjunct faculty database. Some adjunct instructor opportunities can be found listed in our current job openings.
