The College provides a comprehensive benefits package to its full-time and unionized employees that varies among the unions and the administration. Benefits include health insurance; a Section 125 flex-spending account program; sick, vacation, personal, and compensatory time accruals; holidays; participation in one of the New York State Retirement Plans (the Teachers’ Retirement System, the NYS Employees’ Retirement System, or the Optional Retirement Program, which is a defined-benefit program through one or more of the following companies: TIAA-CREF, VALIC, MetLife, or Aetna).
Other benefits include extended sick leaves, bereavement leaves, child-rearing leaves, sabbaticals/educational leaves, time off for study, and professional development opportunities, among others.
The search procedure to fill full-time faculty and administrative positions is thorough and designed to support the Affirmative Action Program. A three-stage process is used. Stages I and II are reviewed by members of the search committee, based on the advertised qualifications through which a screening takes place to determine who will be interviewed. As each stage is completed, applicants who do not meet the necessary qualifications are notified following an audit by the Affirmative Action Officer. 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 and when that material must be submitted.
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. Appointments to vice president positions are made by the Board of Trustees; all other appointments are made by the president of the College.
The intent of these procedures is to select the right individual in accordance with the needs of the College and within appropriate policy and affirmative action guidelines. Search committee members, the administration, and the Board of Trustees take seriously their role in the process. As NCCC wishes to make the process as comfortable as possible, applicants are welcome to e-mail the Director of Human Resources about these procedures or about the status of their application at any time.
