Adjunct Faculty Mentorship Program

Do you have a passion for teaching, a successful track record of working with students and colleagues, and familiarity with Oakton and its practices? Are you a good listener, with a sense of humor and welcoming attitude? The Adjunct Faculty Association and Oakton administration are seeking adjunct faculty to serve as mentors to newly hired adjunct faculty.

To be eligible, you must be currently teaching at Oakton, having been employed here for at least 4 semesters, complete a brief training session during Orientation Week, and have a working knowledge of college practices and available technologies, activities, and professional development opportunities. You should plan to devote 1-1.5 hours per month to working with an assigned mentee during the spring 2020 term. We will try to pair you with a colleague in the same or a related department. Mentors will be compensated with .15 LHE for the semester.
