Howard Community College employs noncredit instructors on a course-by-course basis. An employment contract is issued to noncredit instructors that addresses the details of their employment with the college.
HCC’s continuing education and workforce development (CEWD) division maintains a noncredit adjunct faculty handbook that details the responsibilities of noncredit faculty and related procedures, which is made available to noncredit faculty as part of their interview process. The handbook is available from the CEWD office or on the college’s website.
The handbook addresses the general areas of mission, vision, values, and policies; employment policies and procedures; procedures regarding faculty and classrooms and buildings; and faculty and student support services. Specific topics discussed in the handbook include, but are not limited to, requirements related to class roster distribution and handling; course outlines; and class scheduling and meetings.
