Above Average Use of Part-Time Teachers

63.0% of the teaching staff at Brazosport College are part-time non-faculty or non-tenure track faculty. This percentage represents a higher than average use of adjuncts when compared to the national average of 51.4% , a controversial statistic that some consider indicative of a college's commitment to building a strong, long-term instructional team.

Colleges often use part-time professors and adjuncts to teach courses, rather than full-time faculty. This hiring practice is primarily a way to save money amid increasingly tight budgets. However, it is a controversial practice with strong views on either side. We encourage you to understand this topic more deeply, and how the colleges you are interested in approach faculty hiring. It's your education and your money on the line. Make sure you know what you are getting for it.
