Adjunct Enrichment Programs: ATLAS and AFAP
TCC offers two levels of semester-length, pedagogy-based enrichment programs for adjunct instructors.
The Academy of Teaching, Learning and Success (ATLAS) is open to adjuncts who have taught a minimum of one course at TCC and who are currently teaching at least one course at TCC. Participants who attend all ATLAS sessions and meet program requirements will receive a one-time stipend of $500. Click here to apply. You may also view the Spring 2021 ATLAS syllabus and workshop schedule here.
The Adjunct Faculty Advancement Program (AFAP) is open to adjuncts who have completed the ATLAS program, taught at TCC for a minimum of two semesters, and taught a minimum of 12 credit hours at TCC (please view the AFAP syllabus for eligibility exemptions). Participants will also be required to provide a statement of commitment. Participants who attend all AFAP sessions and meet program requirements will receive a salary increase of $100 per credit hour in subsequent semesters (renewable every 2 years), as well as a certificate of completion, induction as an Adjunct Professor, and other benefits.
