The adjunct position is a per semester contract. I enjoy teaching and cultivating the healthcare leadership pipeline; this position allows me to achieve this objective while also getting paid. Also the courses are at night so they rarely interfere with a day job. If I take a tenured track position the pay would not be comparable to the corporate world, however, the faculty teaches 10 months out of the year in non administrative roles so this allows them to work on other interests such as research or consulting.
The one downside is that the program has limited on-line courses - my goal is to help them build this platform so to attract more students. The location is in Will county Illinois; so off the beaten path.
