Montgomery College to Hold Part-Time Faculty Recruitment Fair May 6

Montgomery County Police Chief Charles Moose, Judge Patricia Mitchell, and Deputy State’s 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 24 years. He says, "it’s a great complement to what I do as a Deputy State’s 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 master’s degree or equivalent professional experience who would like to learn more about part time faculty opportunities at Montgomery College are invited to the college’s third annual Part Time Faculty Recruitment Fair, May 6, 2003 from noon until 8 p.m.  The fair will be held at the Theater Arts Arena on the College’s Rockville campus, 51 Mannakee Street.

Montgomery College is a public, open admissions community college with campuses in Germantown, Rockville, and Takoma Park, along with Workforce Development and Continuing Education centers in Gaithersburg and Wheaton, and a variety of off-campus learning sites. The College offers part-time faculty 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, among more than 100 academic and career programs. The paid positions start as early as this summer.

"This is a key avenue for the College to recruit talented, new part-time faculty," says Instructional Dean Thomas Logan, who heads up the fair. Professors from each discipline will be on hand at the May 6 event to speak with candidates about available opportunities.

Applications are accepted online only and can be accessed by visiting Montgomery College, an equal opportunity employer, is committed to fostering a diverse academic community among its student body, faculty, and staff.
