CCE instructors must be experts or proficient in their field, have formal or informal teaching experience, be confident instructing in front of a class, be organized, and have the enthusiasm required to engage students in the subject.
CCE strives to pay instructors as equitably and as near to the market rate as possible according to applicable education, experience, and demand for the topic being taught.
A course is calculating using a spreadsheet that includes instructor pay rate, instructor
payroll taxes, cost of included student materials or handouts, brochure and other
marketing costs, competitor pricing, and the cost of staying in business.
For example, the more days the class is scheduled to run, the higher the cost will be due to instructor pay and payroll taxes. In order to remain a viable entity for the community in the future, course costs, staff wages, business and marketing expenses must be covered by the course prices.
If you would like to have your class highlighted, please submit a full color headshot of yourself and a short statement about why you love to teach UVU Community Education classes, or an insight, teaching philosophy or other appropriate message that can be used.
Several weeks before you can teach you must complete the UVU online employee application and all required paperwork with the UVU human resource office, which includes a background check as part of this process. You are required to sign a conflict of interest form every year and a contract for each class you teach each term.
The UVU payroll schedule is a semi-monthly lag cycle, with paydays on the 1st and 16th of each month. (i.e. hours worked between the 1st and 15th of the month will be paid on the 1st of the following month).
