G-34-1.5 Minimum Standards for Instructors

(Formerly HR-5-3.5)

The standards listed below are the minimum for instructional personnel at the entry level. The College may establish higher standards for a specific position or assignment.

Minimum standards for regular certification as a full-time, tenure-track instructor in College transfer courses:

Master's degree in the field of primary teaching assignment, or if a Master's degree is not generally offered in the primary teaching field, a Master's degree in a related field and at least 30 quarter hours (20 semester hours) of graduate credit in academic courses in the field of primary teaching assignment.

Note: Although the above is a minimum requirement for faculty teaching College transfer courses, the College has undertaken a major effort to employ individuals who possess a doctoral degree, or recent ABD, in an appropriate academic discipline.
