Employee Profile

NCCC is a workforce comprised of talented, dedicated professionals. We currently employ approximately 700 employees who are part of four distinct groups: Administration, Faculty, Support Staff, and Part-Time.

Administration consists of those designated as administrators. Administrators are generally identified by titles such as president, vice presidents, assistant vice presidents, chief information officer, directors, assistant directors, grant program directors, coaches, assistant to the president, assistant to the vice president, grant writer. Administrators are non-unionized.

Faculty consists of persons classified as teaching faculty, counselors, librarians, non­-credit instructors, non-ranked professionals, and para-professionals who have the title of technical assistants. Faculty are members of the NCCC Faculty Association.

Support staff are those who provide support services to the College. The clerical staff is composed of secretarial personnel, security, printing/duplicating, mail services, and various positions in information technology. The technical staff is composed of maintenance, custodians, cleaners, laborers, groundskeepers, and storekeeper. There are two unions that represent members of the support staff, both of which are affiliated with New York State United Teachers (NYSUT). The clerical staff union is known as the Educational Support Personnel Association (ESPA) and the technical staff is known as the Technical Support Personnel Association (TSPA).

Part-time employees provide various types of service to the College to include instruction of credit courses, instruction of non-credit courses, and various services that support the operation of the College. Part-time instructors who teach at least three (3) credits in a semester are members of the NCCC Adjunct Association also affiliated with NYSUT.

Search process

The search procedure to fill full-time faculty and administrative positions is thorough and designed to support the Diversity and Inclusion Plan. A three-stage process is used. In Stage I candidates are reviewed by Human Resources and in Stage II qualified candidates are reviewed by members of the search committee, through which a screening takes place to determine who will move on to Stage III based on the advertised qualifications of the position. As each stage is completed, applicants who do not meet the necessary qualifications will be notified. Stage III is the interview stage, where the candidates are invited to campus to meet with the committee. (As a general policy, NCCC does not reimburse candidates for travel expenses.) It should be noted that the position vacancy announcement will identify what materials are required of each candidate.

It is important to ensure that materials are submitted in accordance with the vacancy announcement. Once the interviews are completed, the committee recommends whenever possible to the president of the College the names of a minimum of two, a maximum of three, persons who they feel are acceptable for the position.

The intent of these procedures is to select the right individual in accordance with the needs of the College and within appropriate policy and guidelines. Search committee members, the administration, and the president take seriously their role in the process. As NCCC wishes to make the process as comfortable as possible, applicants are welcome to email the Director of Human Resources, Equity & Inclusion, Title IX Coordinator about these procedures or about the status of their application at any time.
