A great school to teach at
Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – May 25, 2017
Returning to school after many years to obtain an advanced degree, I chose St. Johns. As a graduate student my experience was better than I could have imagined. To cap off the experience I was invited to join the faculty as an adjunct instructor. Four years and hundreds of students later, my admiration for this University has only increased. My students have been, for the most part, eager to learn and rewarded me in developing and refining my abilities to effectively teach. My department colleagues, faculty and staff, as well as administrative, contribute to a work environment conducive to the job.
Complaints? of course there are. They could pay more, Some older classrooms could use upgraded presentation systems. Campus food courts are too expensive for faculty and students alike. Overall though, no major complaints, but I would like to see a clear path and policy for adjuncts to advance to full time status
Excellent support services, Involvement with sudents, friendly work environment
