Many of our courses are taught by adjunct instructors. Northwest Campus adjunct instructors teach community interest courses, workforce training, language, arts, traditional knowledge and courses that are required for various degrees. 

An adjunct usually has formal education, credentials and practical work experience. While some subjects like math, English, and political science require advanced degrees, other subjects require less or even no formal education at all.

Adjunct positions are on a semester-by-semester contract basis. Successful acceptance into the adjunct pool does not guarantee an offer of a contract. Employment is dependent on UAF course approval. Duties to include instruction, advising students in subject matter and developing a course outline, syllabus, teaching materials, and tests as needed.
