Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – Boone, IA – March 22, 2018
Would have loved to be made full time. no availability. I really enjoy the students and fellow educators. My immediate supervisor is great. There is such a limited availability for full-time employment that after 16 years I am about to give up on trying.
Adjunct English Instructor (Former Employee) – Ankeny, IA – October 9, 2017
My job was to teach stand alone sections of composition and literature courses. Every semester, I would get a list of courses I was to teach that semester and I would create my own syllabus and choose my own text books.
Good salary and benefits--great support from supervisor and staff.
Life Skills Instructor (Former Employee) – Newton, IA – August 4, 2017
My work for DMACC was to teach a 12 week Life Skills class to men in prison who were nearing their parole as returning citizens.
The job could be challenging at times as the men did not have access to technology connected to the internet. I did not have classroom internet connection in one of my classrooms.
The position was rewarding, in that there were men who transformed during the twelve week course! Most of the men were appreciative of the educational opportunities offered them through DMACC in the prison.
Flat company that allows individual growth and leadership opportunities

DMACC Urban Campus has a wonderful culture, vibe, and support for a diverse population of students. The employee benefits are outstanding. It is a seemingly flat-organization that focuses on individual growth (if requested).

Graphic Design Intern (Current Employee) – Ankeny, IA – May 22, 2017
Marketing department hires current designs students which is a great opportunity for work experience with a flexible schedule. Pace varies throughout the year from many urgent projects to slow days.

The English department writing coordinator is very supportive. She organized a workshop title "Best Practices" to discuss teaching techniques. The workplace culture is positive as people seemed happy to work there.

Low pay, had to share an office with several other adjunct instructors.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Ankeny, IA – March 19, 2017
Great place to work. Few opportunities for full time employment. Great people. Great mission. As an adjunct professor, you do not know how many classes you will teach semester to semester. You are limited in number of hours so they can avoid paying for healthcare for instructors.
