Good atmosphere, Low adjunct wages
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – North Canton, OH – August 4, 2018
I love Kent State and all the good things that they do for the campus and surrounding communities. They try to keep the students engaged and, as a faculty member, you can see how much the University cares about the students. Unfortunately, it doesn't feel like the University cares as much as they should about their part-time faculty. We do not earn what we're worth and receive no benefits. As much as I would love to become a full-time faculty member, any vacant positions within my department are rare. So for years, I have been working at a full-time job elsewhere and hoping the University will throw me at least one class every semester just for a little extra cash and to keep my foot in the door.
