Primary Purpose and Essential Functions

The University of the Pacific, Benerd College seeks instructors to teach primarily in-person, and/or hybrid classes, part-time to students in Counseling and School Psychology Programs. Our current part-time faculty are drawn from regional expertise in teaching and leadership and offer our students a wealth of practitioner-based expertise.

Visiting Instructors/Lecturers/Assist Professors are part-time, non-tenure- track employees contracted via mutually-signed offer letters, to teach specific classes during specific semesters (specific dates) as outlined in the offer letter. Faculty rank and title are contingent upon the successful candidate's experience and qualifications.

All part-time faculty are expected to perform the following duties:

  • Complete all employment documents and any required training, and submit employment documents such as signed offer letters in a timely manner.
  • Prepare for your course, including obtaining the approved syllabus, and updating the course schedule, teaching methods, assessments, and assignments as appropriate and required.
  • Provide a classroom environment conducive to learning.
  • Adhere to all University and school policies.
  • Teach the assigned course(s) as published in the Academic schedule and noted in the offer letter, using andragogical (adult learning theory) and other teaching methods fairly and effectively.

  • Review student-completed course evaluations conducted online at the end of each semester to analyze student perceptions.
  • University of the Pacific recognizes that diversity, equity, and inclusion is foundational to the success of our valued students and employees.
