ADJUNCT POOL DESCRIPTION:

Santa Rosa Junior College is currently accepting applications to establish a pool for adjunct teaching assignments. Adjunct teaching assignments may be temporary, part-time and/or on-call and may be immediate or as needed. This job posting is not for a specific assignment or for a full-time faculty position.



Candidates selected for the pool and offered an assignment must be located near enough to the District or plan on moving near the District to accept part-time, substitute or emergency assignments. Candidates who are recommended for the pool after committee interviews will only be added to the pool for disciplines interviewed and qualified for (not necessarily all disciplines included in this job posting where multiple disciplines are listed). Assignments could involve full or partial assignment at any of the Districts sites or off-campus locations, and could involve any combination of day or evening classes, with office hours being mandatory.



Applications are accepted for adjunct faculty pools on a continuous basis. If the department has an immediate need to add candidates to their pool, they will review applications. If the department does not have an immediate need to add candidates to their pool, all applications will remain on file until the need arises or up to one year. If selected for interview, candidates will be invited to interview with a Screening Committee. The Screening Committee may include representatives from the Faculty, the Administration, the Classified Staff, the Associated Students, and the Board of Trustees. If recommended for the pool, references will be checked at any point beyond the interview. If selected for the pool, candidates remain in the pool for a period of four years.



GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

The Philosophy, Humanities and Religion Department of Santa Rosa Junior College is accepting applications for a pool of qualified candidates with demonstrated instructional skills to join an outstanding team of faculty and administrators to provide high quality programs and services to our district, our community, and most importantly to our students.



Philosophy courses:



- PHIL 3 - Critical Thinking

- PHIL 5 - Critical Thinking & Writing

- PHIL 6 - Introduction to Philosophy



DEPARTMENT DESCRIPTION:

The Philosophy, Humanities and Religion Department is dedicated to providing the highest quality instruction in our respective disciplines. The Department is committed to meeting the educational needs of our students by offering courses which reflect the diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds of our students, by providing general education and elective courses for transfer and for occupational students, and by serving the educational needs of the larger community. Our Department has seven (7) full-time and twenty-two (22) adjunct faculty. Offices are located in the Emeritus Building on Elliot Avenue. Day and evening classes are offered at both the Santa Rosa and Petaluma campuses. We offer a select number of online courses.



PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

The Philosophy program offers a broad range of courses designed to provide a general acquaintance with the issues and history of philosophy. Our courses explore both western and non-western philosophical, ethical, and religious traditions. The department is also committed to teaching the critical thinking skills necessary for student success and good citizenship. In all of our courses, the department seeks to encourage students to examine the arguments of others as well as question their own values and commitments. Students who complete courses in philosophy are well prepared to pursue advanced work in the discipline or to apply their philosophical skills in multiple career settings such as law, medicine, business, or government. Whether taken to satisfy general education requirements, to pursue a philosophy major, or for personal growth, philosophy courses provide a unique opportunity to enrich ones ability to analyze and evaluate a wide range of questions faced in everyday life.
