About SCCCD Part-time Faculty
 

San-Joaquin-Valley-RPU-Map_edited (1).png

We build unlikely futures in one of the poorest regions of the nation. The SCCCD faculty provides education and training to tens of thousands of  students yearly, many of whom are low income. We provide the education that increases the potential for upward mobility for our students and provides our growing valley economy with the skilled workers that it so desperately needs.
Yet, for all of our achievements, which look well on SCCCD, much of our work remains unpaid by the District and its governing board.




 
Part-timers make up 2/3rds of the faculty body at State Center Community College District
FT PT RATIO_edited.png
66th in the state.
Year after year, SCCCD Part-timers rank near the bottom in terms of pay among all community colleges in the state. When looking at comparable distrcts, we come in dead last.

Unpaid Work

An SCCCD adjunct with a full load (10 units) earns a wage that is roughly equal to minimum wage.  This is because more than half of the work that adjuncts are required to do is unpaid. While Ed Code does set a cap on how much adjuncts are able to teach, it is within the power of a district's administration and board to make us whole, they just choose not to.

Workweek

This is what the work week looks like for SCCCD part-time faculty--which is not much different than FT faculty. As you can see here, part-timers are only partially paid for the number of hours required to fulfill their duties and responsibilities as instructors.

We need your support!

Part-time inequity is a persistent issue in academia that requires long term dedication to create real and lasting change in our institution. Our committee is dedicated to this cause but change will only come piecemeal without our colleagues standing behind us in great numbers. While we appreciate member support and solidarity from afar, the only way we are really going to have any impact on our district is through member involvement. 
Reach out to our team if you are interested in becoming involved.
