Adjunct Faculty Not Valued
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Martinsburg, WV – September 19, 2018
As a current adjunct faculty member, BRCTC has made it obvious that they do not value the contributions of those who REALLY make the money for he college, the ADJUNCT FACULTY. I have been teaching there for 5 years and during that time the per class adjunct faculty stipend has NOT been increased, or the issue even address. However they have found time to give the regular fulltime & part time faculty and staff TWO raises in the past 2 years totaling between 6-1/2% to 9%. BRCTC remains one of the lowest paying (if not THE lowest paying)college for adjunct professor salaries in the MD-VA-WV-DC area. BEWARE voicing your concerns on this (or any subject) to management, you will either find yourself demoted (one program dean was reduced to the rank of an department instructional coordinator) or, like myself, REMOVED from the schedule for the upcoming semester.
Students are generally nice.
Poor management, poor pay
