Funds for Part-Time Faculty to Participate
Each SAC is entitled to up to 10 hours per academic year of paid compensation, at the College's special projects rate, for assessment work carried out by part-time faculty. The funds can be paid to a single person or divided between multiple people working to support their SAC's assessment efforts.
To secure compensation, SAC chairs must contact their SAC's administrative liaison with the G number of the faculty member(s) carrying out the work. SAC chairs are responsible for designating the number of hours to be compensated. If a SAC chair is unsure of who their dean liaison is, please contact Susan Wilson in Academic Affairs: firstname.lastname@example.org or 971-722-4555.
The PCC Learning Assessment Council (LAC) provides free year-round assessment coaching to all SACs. Coaching assignments are usually finalized early each fall. The following individuals can put SACs in touch with their assigned coach:
- Susan Wilson, Academic Support Coordinator and LAC coach, email@example.com, 971-722-4555
- Nora Stevens, LAC Vice-Chair 2017-2018, firstname.lastname@example.org
