Abstract or Summary
  • This phenomenological study explores what it means to teach part-time in community colleges in the United States. The increasing use of part-time faculty in community colleges and the concomitant emergence of a two-tiered faculty are discussed. The study examines the nature of part-time work in the United States, thus providing insight into practices in higher education. A discussion of challenges women continue to face in the workplace in general, and academia in particular, provide a background for understanding issues raised by study participants. Through the voices of six women, the study moves behind current statistical data to reveal the experiences, disappointments, joys, and motivations of part-time faculty. The findings illuminate current practices, highlight the importance of the department chair in affecting part-time faculty members' experiences, and challenge us to consider working conditions and relationships in our own academic communities.
