The Substance Abuse Prevention Program invites applications for its adjunct instructor pool.  Appointments may range from one to four terms per year, including summer, and appointment level depends on teaching load.  There is a possibility of renewal for up to 3 years based on instructional needs, funding and performance.  The program anticipates hiring instructors for courses in the areas of substance use, misuses, and abuse, prevention, intervention, and related topics.
