Much of the faculty work occurs at designated times each week (such as classes, office hours, meetings, etc.) However, the very nature of the workload of a professional educator at the college level means that the hours a faculty member fulfills his or her non-scheduled responsibilities are based on each individual’s judgment. The College offers learning opportunities in a variety of settings and at various times throughout day.  As such, relegating faculty to an 8-5, Monday through Friday schedule is impractical. A typical faculty work schedule varies from semester to semester and week to week to accommodate student learning, professional development and service to the college/community. This position is mainly online with the exception of every Saturday on campus or in clinical with students.
