Company Culture

The higher education system does not prioritize students when it compromises the quality of life of its instructors.

Freedom to work independently

I don't think trust is the world.

Challenging Work

Our students have a long history in education in which resources have been negligible. Our students are brilliant but they and instructors have not and are not given the tools to maximize our talents.

Suggestions for improvement

  • $7k per course load for instructors. Investments per students. Lower tuition.

What I like about the company

I love teaching but I hate being dehumanized.

What I dislike about the company

Corporate approaches to education.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The faculty-evaluation process. Shared governance.

What I like about the company

Interactions with students. There is nothing positive about my collaboration with colleagues, and certainly nothing positive about working under administrators who disrespect and demean lowly faculty and staff. The evaluation system is a house of horrors that will probably drive me away within a year or two.

What I dislike about the company

There is no purpose to providing constructive feedback to persons in power who are unable or unwilling to take it.
