  Abstract: On average, contingent (part-time) faculty teach nearly half of the course s at community colleges. The effect of this on student retention, success, and graduation rates is either assumed to be negative or remains unknown to most faculty and college officials. In this presentation, I will review the latest research on the effects that extensive use of part-time faculty has on student success, retention, transfer rates, and graduation rates.
