Call for Community Education Instructors

Attention Instructors!

We are Accepting Course Proposals!  Submit one today! 


Community Education Instructors help to fulfill Outreach’s mission of providing quality, innovative, learning opportunities to our community. We’re always looking for individuals with fresh ideas and a desire to share a skill or interest with the community. Ideal instructors have extensive knowledge in their skill or subject area, great people skills and, above all, a passion for teaching others. If you have a course or class you’d like to teach, we encourage you to submit a course proposal.

Submit Your Course Proposal:

The first step to becoming an instructor is to complete the online Course Proposal Form.
The following information is required for the course proposal:

  • Cover Letter
  • Résumé
  • Three references

Your submission will be reviewed by the Community Education Coordinator and selected based on a number of factors including, but not limited to: course interest, instructor experience and references. If selected, you will be contacted directly and invited to teach for us.


Submit Your Course Information:

Community Education classes runs from January – June and September – December of each year.
The following information will be required upon submitting the  Course Proposal Form:

  1. Course Syllabus
    The syllabus should include the course title, instructor contact information, course dates and times, course objectives, course outline, and content covered for each class.
  2. Instructor Biography
    Tell us who you are! Be sure to include your education, experience as related to the course, honors and hobbies. You may also provide a photo.
  3. Supply List & Materials Fee
    The supply list will include any materials that the student is responsible for buying and bringing to the class. The materials fee is required only if the instructor is providing the necessary materials for the course (CDs, books, etc.). Material fees will be paid directly to the instructor. We will be happy to Xerox copies. (These expenses will be deducted from the course revenue).
  4. Marketing Audience Suggestions
    List any audiences that you wish your class to be marketed. This can include age, gender, special interest groups or any other specific audience.


Contract and Compensation

UCA faculty, staff, students, retired faculty and staff and alumni with paid alumni memberships will receive 50% off regular registration fee for Community Education courses.  This discount can be applied for one guest. If the instructor chooses to offer an early bird fee, the fee will be 15% less than the regular registration fee.  A current UCA ID is required and current alumni membership status will be verified. Only one discount per course; discounts cannot be applied to textbooks or materials.

The Instructor will receive a 50% portion of the total registration fees for teaching the course.  Registrations will be confirmed after the second class and the compensation paperwork will be processed at that time.
