Faculty Profiles

The adjunct faculty at Baltimore City Community College is a vibrant group of individuals who bring a wealth of knowledge, perspective, expertise and experience to classrooms across our campus. Our adjunct faculty hail from many walks of life – some work full-time in the fields in which they teach, some are full or part-time faculty at other institutions while others are in the process of completing graduate degrees. They all, however, share our commitment to providing high quality education to the residents or Baltimore City. Below, you will see just a small portion of what members of the adjunct faculty have to offer.
