Pros: great flexibility, good remuneration for adjuncts
Cons: benefits weak, cannot develop into full-time position
Working as an adjunct instructor, I found Rutgers University to be accommodating and generous. Apart from the continued fiction that adjunct instructors are not part of the faculty, this position allowed flexibility for class times and most of the support necessary to carry out the task well. Students, staff, and colleagues generally friendly and caring. The most difficult aspect was the fact that the position was, and always would be, part-time. The most enjoyable part was working with bright, and sometimes enthusiastic, students.
