Montgomery College to Spotlight
College Hosts Adjunct Recruitment Fair April 3
Montgomery County Police Chief Charles Moose, Judge Patricia Mitchell, and Deputy States Attorney John McCarthy have something in common you might not expect. The three prominent Montgomery Countians all are adjunct (part-time) professors at Montgomery College.
McCarthy has been teaching part-time at the College for 23 years. He says, "its a great complement to what I do as a Deputy States Attorney. It keeps me in touch with the community; with what people are thinking." McCarthy also cites the "energy from meeting with all the students" as a positive factor in his teaching life, which he calls "far more than just a part-time job."
Individuals with a masters degree or equivalent professional experience who would like to learn more about adjunct professor opportunities at Montgomery College are invited to the schools second annual Adjunct Recruitment Fair, from noon to 8 p.m. April 3. The fair will be held at the Theater Arts Arena on the Colleges Rockville campus, 51 Mannakee Street.
The College offers adjunct opportunities in a wide range of disciplines, including advertising art, American Sign Language, chemistry, computer applications and science, counseling, English, economics, history, information technology, math, music, photography, theater, and more. The paid positions start as early as this summer.
"This is the Colleges primary avenue for finding new part-time faculty," says Instructional Dean Thomas Logan, who heads up the fair. Professors from each discipline will be on hand at the April 3 event to speak with candidates about available opportunities.
Montgomery College, an equal opportunity employer, is committed to fostering a diverse academic community among its student body, faculty, and staff.
It is a public, open admissions community college with campuses in Germantown, Rockville, and Takoma Park, plus satellite learning centers in Gaithersburg and Wheaton.
