Dear Adjunct Faculty:

Greetings Team! We are pleased you are part of our faculty here at Sussex County Community College for the Fall 2017 Semester.  To those of you who are new to our team, all of us in Academic Affairs say welcome!  To those of you returning to the team, welcome back!

Adjunct faculty are an integral part of our academic team.  We shall provide enhanced training and knowledge opportunities through orientation and other venues throughout the semester.  The Fall 2017 Adjunct Faculty Orientation will be held on Thursday, August 31, 2017 starting at 5:00 p.m. and running through 8:30 p.m.  We will begin together in the “D” Building Student Center cafeteria with dinner followed by a presentation by representatives of Academic Affairs, Student Services, and Institutional Research. Following dinner, Department Chairs and Program Coordinators will convene individual department-based sessions.  We encourage all our adjunct faculty members to attend.  For those of you who have yet to complete your required pension paperwork, please call Daniel DeCepoli  at 973-300-2772 to schedule an appointment to complete this paperwork.  Also, New Jersey teachers may request a certificate of attendance for 3 ½  hours to be credited towards the 100-hour New Jersey teachers’ requirement by contacting Linda Connor,, 973-300-2132 in the Office of Academic Affairs.

Please note, you are invited to attend the Fall 2017 All College General Session on Tuesday, August 29 from 10:00 am to 12:00 in the Performing Arts Center at SCCC.

I know I speak for all the members of our college community when I say we are excited about launching a new learning opportunity for our students! In the words of Anatole France “The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.”
