Faculty Handbook

Laramie County Community College (LCCC)
http://www.lccc.wy.edu/
We live in the information age yet communication challenges are consistently cited by CEOs as an organizational deficiency. LCCC needed a structure to assure that adjunct and full-time faculty have current and relevant information about expected practices. A handbook has served this need in the past, however printed documents quickly become outdated. An online handbook was envisioned as a singular, authoritative, up-to-date reference for all LCCC faculty that is easily maintainable.

The LCCC Faculty Handbook guides all faculty in carrying out the expected practices that pertain to the faculty role at the College. The Handbook was developed to replace the previous inconsistent practice of providing a printed manual that served as a general “how to” for classroom management but lacked the responsive, comprehensive, and collaborative structure to meet faculty’s needs. The Handbook is meant to provide timely assistance for the successful accomplishment of faculty responsibilities whether they are carried out by a long-term and full-time faculty member, or by a newly-hired adjunct faculty member with only superficial knowledge of the faculty role at LCCC.
