Moraine Park Technical College – Hiring Standards*

Adjunct faculty members teaching adult continuing education or community service/avocational courses do not fall under the Faculty Quality Assurance System, but must still meet any appropriate state or federal licensing and accreditation standards.

* Faculty members who meet the hiring standards at one Wisconsin technical college may not automatically meet those at another Wisconsin technical college.

Application Process

An online application must be completed in order to be considered for full-time or adjunct teaching opportunities.  Documents that must be submitted as part of the application process include the following:

  • Official undergraduate and graduate transcripts from accredited post-secondary degree granting institutions 
  • Copies of professional or occupational licenses required by a state or federal agency for employment in the occupation or profession
  • A minimum of 5 professional references (2 from supervisors; 3 from peers)

 

Criminal background checks are completed for all full-time and adjunct faculty positions before a hiring decision is made. For certain positions, caregiver and/or criminal background checks mandated by State statute, clinical contract or agency requirements will also be required.

Professional Development

All full-time and adjunct faculty members hired to teach degree or adult basic education courses that meet for more than 15 hours in one course section must maintain currency in their assigned content area and create annual professional development plans as detailed in Chapter TCS 3 of the Wisconsin Administrative Code.
