- Clark University04.Jan 2019
Clark University exploits adjuncts especially those overseas. They care about money, not about teaching.
Suggestions for improvement
- I'd hire management who have experience in education and would create a team to design a curriculum that promotes learning and valid assessment. I would follow IRS regulations and give benefits to all adjuncts who work over 12 hours. I would follow the school's academic honesty policy and impose consequences on cheaters rather than turning a blind eye to corruption and students buying essays. I would provide a healthy workplace free of black mold and asbestos.
What I like about the company
I enjoyed the freedom to do whatever I wanted in the classroom. Also, the students were pleasant and some worked hard.
What I dislike about the company
While I can only comment on my department, the constant management changes and the lack of professionalism in administration is exceptionally low. If they just hired experienced educators to manage the program and if they heeded teachers' recommendation to design a real curriculum and to get serious about cheating, the program would vastly improve. They also need to follow IRS regulations. As it is now they flout IRS regulations to the detriment of the adjuncts, who aren't given the benefits they deserve and to all teachers who regularly get incorrect W2s or deductions. Clark currently refuses to fix their errors so teachers have trouble at tax time.
The university needs to listen to their instructors when they expose the black mold and other health hazards. As it is, instructors have to report problems to OSHA and other government agencies for problems to be fixed.
