Teach for Community Education

Thank you for your interest in teaching for us! Community Education at Sierra College offers short, not-for-credit workshop or seminar style classes designed to meet the needs and address the interests of our community. If you have a skill, talent or knowledge you would like to share and you have developed a course, then we would like to hear from you. Previous teaching experience or formal academic training is a plus, but not necessarily required. We seek presenters possessing subject mastery, passion about their field, and the ability to communicate clearly. Most of our instructors are community members who enjoy sharing their expertise with fellow community members!

Please contact us directly if you are interested in summer, we offer a smaller, more focused program schedule.

The planning/scheduling process takes months. If your proposal meets our current need, you will be contacted by email or phone. In the event your proposal is not accepted for the current season, it does not mean it won't be considered for in the future. We keep proposals on file for several seasons.
