The Maricopa County Community Colleges District (MCCCD) is committed to providing access to quality education. Quality education includes the support and development of all our faculty. Adjunct faculty play an immense role in teaching in MCCCD. Learning is a lifetime commitment and to support our faculty's learning, MCCCD has designed Adjunct Faculty Competencies and offers three professional development programs.
If you are interested in enhancing your practice, personal and professional development, and want to enhance your students' learning, then keep reading and learn more about what we offer.
The framework developed for MCCCD adjunct faculty professional development programming will offer three different pathways for the completion of five competencies designed to elevate the teaching and learning practice of adjunct faculty in the District.
This framework has been designed as an equitable and organized professional development structure by which adjunct faculty advance through tiers (Adjunct I, II, and III) as required by the Faculty Agreement (Article 19.4.1). The programs have been designed to accommodate the different types of adjunct profiles teaching within the District. There will be three programs to choose from.
