LCHC looking for adjuncts to teach courses part-time

Job fair on Oct. 27 to find instructors for multiple disciplines in Huntsville & Navasota units

HUNTSVILLE, TX – With a growing enrollment of more than 1,200 incarcerated students pursuing associate degrees and certificates, the Lee College Huntsville Center is looking for new adjunct faculty to teach classes part-time at Texas Department of Criminal Justice units in both Huntsville and Navasota.

Potential instructors are invited to attend the Huntsville Job Fair to be held from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Lee College Huntsville Center office, located at 168-C Col. Etheredge Blvd. Participants should bring their resumes to the fair to provide to human resources staff and current faculty, who will be available to answer questions and share insights from their own experiences in the classroom.

One of the oldest and largest prison education programs in the United States, the Lee College Huntsville Center needs adjunct instructors for a variety of fields, including: business management, biology, geology, natural sciences, developmental English and writing, development math, standard math, speech and art. Adjuncts will be assigned to teach students at the Eastham, Ellis, Estelle, Ferguson, Holliday, Huntsville and Wynne units in Huntsville, as well as the Luther and Pack units in Navasota.

Adjuncts who teach academic courses must have a master’s degree and 18 graduate hours in the discipline being taught. The positions are especially ideal for retired educators and professionals who want to continue using their skills and expertise to make a difference in their community. Data has shown that inmates who complete two years of college behind bars are significantly less likely to return to prison.

“It’s a good experience to see someone turn their life around through education,” said Ray Wright, a retired high school math teacher and administrator who has served as an adjunct instructor for the Lee College Huntsville Center for the last 7 years. “These students have excelled beyond my expectations; they are well-behaved and hungry for information, and they really want to be there. Education can help them get employment when they leave prison and be successful – something many of them have never been.”

For more information about working as an adjunct instructor with the Lee College Huntsville Center or the upcoming Huntsville Job Fair, contact the Office of Human Resources at 281.425.6875 or hr@lee.edu.

Lee College offers more than 100 associate degree and certificate programs, as well as non-credit workforce and community education courses, that prepare its diverse student body for advanced higher education; successful entry into the workforce; and a variety of in-demand careers. With the main campus and McNair Center located in Baytown, Texas, and a satellite education center in nearby South Liberty County, the college serves a geographic area of more than 220,000 residents that includes 14 independent school districts.
