Qualified locals looking to make an impression on college students through instruction may have the opportunity to do so at Modesto Junior College, which is hiring full time faculty to accommodate the additions of hundreds of new courses.
“With the passing of Proposition 30 came the ability for community colleges to grow. Since then, we have been attempting to restore our services to students which include course offerings,” said Susan Kincade, vice president of instruction at MJC.
Proposition 30, a measure to raise income tax to prevent cuts to the state education budget, was passed by California citizens in 2012 thus providing MJC the ability to offer programs that had been cut because of the statewide impact of the national recession. The local community college is now adding hundreds of new courses for its summer, fall and late-start spring classes, which in turn create a need for full-time and adjunct faculty.
“I think what this means is that we can reach the needs of the community and our community partners,’ said Kincade.
Full-time faculty positions are available in the departments of English, nursing, agriculture science, business administration, economics, anatomy and physiology, reading English as a second language, sociology, geography and photography. Full time faculty positions will close today while adjunct or part-time positions are continuously open.
