Faculty associates are part-time instructors on a semester to semester contract to teach courses as needed based on the college’s needs. Academic associates are part-time instructional positions on a semester-to-semester contract that support the course instructor of record if there are at least 41 students enrolled. Their duties include assisting with the grading of higher-level assignments and assessments and communicating with students. Degree or program directors are responsible for submitting requests each semester for these positions. The Academic Success Hub will send out an email when requests can begin to be submitted and an initial deadline for submission.
Note: For a new hire request (any individual that has never worked for CHS), please also submit a copy of their resume/CV and complete the waiver. An offer letter will not be generated without this request.
FA teaching and AA assignments cannot exceed the following maximum course assignments. If they exceed this maximum and/or have additional assignments with another unit, please contact academic personnel HR to discuss next steps.

Compensation is based on the course credits hours and their level of degree. Please see the submission form.
