ID cards will be issued to adjunct faculty at the beginning of the semester. These cards are good only for a single semester and are issued for security reasons. Additionally, they will enable an instructor to access his/her classroom, use the library, pool, and PE facilities, and purchase tickets to productions in the Smith Theatre at HCC staff rates. In order to obtain an access card an adjunct faculty member must first fill out an Access Card Request form.
An HCC email account is automatically created once you complete the Access and Responsibility training (see required training). Maintaining your HCC email account is a mandatory part of your job responsibilities, as the division chair, course coordinator, office staff, and students will communicate frequently with you via your HCC email account. HCC is unable to substitute personal email addresses for your Howard Community College address due to the large number of adjunct faculty and the nature of our distribution lists.
Voicemail is expected to serve as a major communication vehicle between adjunct faculty and students.
If you would like a voicemail number, contact the HCC helpdesk at 443-518-4444 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. Voicemail numbers take a minimum of two days to be assigned. Faculty will be notified of their voicemail number via college email.
Note: If you had a voicemail number in the previous term, you must request to keep the number.
Adjunct faculty may use the faculty/staff parking lots designated by signs around campus.
Parking tags are required for all staff vehicles. Each instructor is issued one parking tag to hang on the rear view mirror so that it is visible to a campus security officer as you drive on campus. Only one pass is issued per faculty member. Please transfer the hanging tag when driving another vehicle. To obtain a parking tag, fill out the vehicle registration card issued by your division office staff and submit it to the Welcome Center to obtain your tag. Registration cards are also available in the Evening Services Office (ST-149) and the Welcome Center (RCF Lobby).
Due to on-campus construction, parking may be difficult. Avoid the hassle and take the Dragon Wagon, HCC's off-site parking shuttle. Check out the Parking and Shuttle Schedule.
