The faculty coordinator will also be responsible for hiring adjunct instructors; collaborating with faculty and staff members to schedule courses; leading campus events, including recruitment, orientation, campus welcome and convocation; and liaising with university wide entities, advisement, community partners and city leaders. Administrative responsibilities and compensation will extend into the summer.

AAP students enjoy an uninterrupted transition from the AAP to a bachelor’s degree program in the junior year. AAP faculty commit a majority of their time and effort to preparing students to succeed in their transition to bachelor’s degree programs or to the workforce. Continuing track faculty have opportunities to pursue research, are eligible for promotion and sabbaticals, and receive full and generous benefits as part of their compensation package.
