The Associate Faculty Certification Program

Valencia’s Associate Faculty Certification Program is the college’s way of annually recognizing and rewarding adjunct and full-time, non-tenure earning faculty members who participate in the college’s faculty development activities. This certification program supports faculty members in their ongoing commitment to the enhancement of their knowledge, skills and abilities that lead to student learning or academic success.

The deadline to apply for Associate Faculty Certification
for the 2012-2013 academic year is June 15.


  • Earn the title of associate faculty member.
  • Receive a pay raise (see the Faculty Development website for details).
  • Become part of a collaborative community made up of faculty members from across the college.
  • Get tools and training to help you meet the expectations for being a great teacher at Valencia.
