Part-Time Faculty at Rhodes Wellness College

Our Part-time faculty have been part of the fabric that makes our part-time instruction every bit as good
as our full-time instruction. Our students just have more time between classes and typically are taking
part-time courses while juggling other full-time duties in parenting, working, or other educational
pursuit and hobbies. Part-time students can be confident that we choose our part-time faculty carefully.
They are not just adjunct faculty. These are wellness professionals who are phenomenally talented in
their professions, and they are teaching at Rhodes Wellness College because helping students in this
capacity brings joy to them. We are grateful for their contribution to our students and our college
