Standard pitfalls of academia, but some great people
Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee) – Lafayette, IN – April 4, 2019
Jobs in academia have some fairly standard pitfalls, and Ivy Tech is no exception to this, but there are some great people who work here. There are also some of the other sort. You can easily tell the ones who care about the students and the work that they are doing - if only the administration could identify them too! It is hard to fill the classrooms with teachers willing to work for the pay offered at community colleges though, and you get a wide range of abilities and enthusiasm.
Overall, I loved the time I spent teaching at the college despite the standard issues.
