Faculty or Adjunct Faculty Positions

Unofficial college transcripts from an accredited institution may be submitting during the hiring process. If selected for employment, official transcripts must be provided to the Human Resources Office prior to the date of hire.

Transcripts from foreign institutions must be transcribed by a company listed on the NACES website, with a course by course evaluation.

 

E-Verify

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) requires verification of the identity and employment eligibility of all employees. Galveston College is an E-Verify employer.  E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares information from an employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to data from the U.S Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility.

 

Veteran’s Preference in Employment

In compliance with Texas State Senate Bill (S.B.) 805, Galveston College is committed to providing a preference in employment to eligible veteran, disabled veteran, surviving spouse of veteran and orphan of veteran applicants who meet minimum qualifications and any special qualifications for the position to which they apply.  The required preferences do not compel the College to appoint a veteran, disabled veteran, surviving spouse of a veteran or orphan of a veteran.  However, they do require that those who meet the veteran preference eligibility be appointed when their application assessment, combined with the veteran’s preference, is equal to, or higher than that of a non-veteran.

 

Selective Service Requirements

HB 558, passed by the 76th Legislature, requires that male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrant aliens residing in the U.S. are required to be registered with Selective Service if they are at least 18 years old but are not yet 26 years old. Persons subject to this law must present proof of compliance or exemption from registration with Federal Selective Service System law in order to be eligible for employment.

Upon employment, the employee may enter into a written agreement with the College and ERS that a pre-tax payroll deduction be made to fund a Health Care Spending and/or Dependent Care Spending Account. The employee may use the tax-free money from these accounts to pay for eligible health expenses not reimbursed under the employee’s medical and dental plans, or to pay for eligible child care expenses. The process of entering into a written agreement needs to be repeated prior to September 1 for each subsequent calendar year in which an employee wishes to fund such accounts.  More information can be found on the TexFlex Website.

Employee Classification & Compensation

The function of a compensation philosophy is to establish a system of remuneration that supports the College’s mission and goals of its Strategic Plan. The Objective of the System is to maintain an externally competitive relationship in similar educational markets within the financial capability of the College, reward teaching excellence and recognize longevity with the institution.

 

 

Board of Regents Guidelines

  • The Compensation Plan shall employ a clear and consistent method of determining annual employee compensation, which defines specific rather than random placement within salary ranges based upon years of experience and level of education.
  • Maintain salary ranges driven by competitive minimum (base) salaries.
  • Establish bench-mark targets for competitiveness of: An average faculty salary that would rank Galveston College in the top 25% of public two-year colleges in Texas, salaries for administrative staff at or above state averages for comparable positions, salaries for classified staff at or above Gulf Coast Consortium averages for comparable positions.
