Mat-Su College is recruiting qualified applicants for its pool of adjunct instructors in environmental science. Adjunct instructors are hired on a semester-by-semester appointment.

Susitna Borough, the fastest growing region of Alaska. We serve as a major higher education hub for the communities of Wasilla and

Palmer. Our student-friendly campus offers small class sizes and state-of-the- art facilities, including paramedic classrooms with a fully

equipped ambulance bay, updated science labs, and a new 520-seat performing arts theater, the first in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley.
