Typical Adjunct Experience
adjunct faculty (Current Employee) – Durham, NH – November 1, 2015
UNH offers a typical experience for adjunct professors; a modest work space (usually a tiny office shared with another adjunct, though the ladies in the department office do their best to pair professors with opposite schedules so two are never in the space at the same time), a reasonable course load (usually one or two sections of a class), and the English department does their best to meet the scheduling needs of adjuncts. That being said, there is -typically- zero job security, no benefits (beyond access to the UNH library), and negligible professional support.
Bottom line; UNH is not a bad place to be an adjunct, but only because there is typically no good place to be one.
Access to the UNH library; the English department is generally friendly
No benefits, minimal pay, no professional support
