This paper examines a number of issues associated with part-time faculty in community colleges. In the area of part-time faculty integration, the author surveyed 28 Florida colleges using an online survey, and received responses from 20, for a response rate of 71.4%. The survey contained five questions: (1) Are adjunct/part-time faculty listed in the printed catalog? (2) Does the college have an online faculty and staff directory on its web site? (3) Are adjunct/part-time instructors listed in the online directory? (4) Does the college provide their full-time faculty with campus e-mail addresses? and (5) Are adjunct/part-time faculty provided with campus e-mail addresses? All of the responding colleges had an online faculty and staff directory on their web sites. Of those, nine colleges (45%) reported that part-time faculty were listed in the directory, 10 colleges (95%) provided their full-time faculty with campus e-mail addresses, and 15 colleges (75%) provided their pat-time faculty with campus e-mail addresses. The paper also offers an overview of the following part-time faculty issues: (1) a review of the literature; (2) financial and other benefits to colleges of hiring part-time faculty; (3) the negative impacts of part-time faculty on the institution, the students, and the full-time faculty members; and (4) part-time faculty job satisfaction. (Contains 15 references.) (Author/NB)
