Community and technical colleges, urban institutions, branch locations, and private schools may rely on part-time faculty members because they save these institutions money and they allow institutions to more “change [their] academic program to meet market demand.” Large urban universities may utilize part-time faculty because the “pool of talent in a large city exposes the university to many professionals with rare and diverse concentrations.” Graduate and professional schools rely on part-time faculty because these schools often have clinical instruction. In addition, “[l]aw schools often utilize adjunct faculty to take advantage of a practicing attorney’s knowledge in a particular subject area.”
