Organization Name: Columbia Basin College

Columbia Basin College (“CBC” or the “College”) seeks to develop applicant pools for adjunct faculty to teach course offerings throughout the year. CBC offers rewarding opportunities for adjunct faculty to teach courses at both our Pasco and Richland campuses, campus extension locations, as well as online/remotely. Adjunct faculty typically provide instruction for traditional quarter-long courses by teaching 11-week courses (Fall, Winter, Spring) or 8-week courses (Summer), as well as hourly work and substitution as needed.
Successful candidates must be flexible in their ability to achieve the instructional and general responsibilities of the course assignment, including the use of a broad range of learning resources and technologies. CBC encourages applications from faculty who have a passion for teaching, a commitment to student success and an understanding of the community college mission. Given the diversity of our student population, applications are encouraged from faculty candidates who can adapt teaching methods to a wide range of student backgrounds and interests.
The primary duty of adjunct instructional faculty is to serve students through faculty/student contact and by other activities related to the learning process:
Design and delivery of college-approved courses in accordance with approved course descriptions, student learning outcomes and class schedules;
Work with departmental faculty/leads/supervising administrators to develop syllabi, addenda and/or reading lists for each course taught; submit approved syllabi and addenda to division; assist in the annual course(s) update; participate in selection of texts and related teaching resources;
At the beginning of each course, orient students to syllabi and addenda;
Assess student learning outcomes, engage in timely interaction/feedback/grading to support student success and meet course outcomes;
Provide students with appropriate learning resources to facilitate student success in achieving course outcomes, program outcomes and appropriate College-wide Student Learning Outcomes; and
Maintain, submit and retain accurate academic records, including verification of class rosters and student grades.
