As our student body, and global studies majors in particular, grow increasingly diverse, we have a strong preference for publicly engaged scholarship, and candidates with interests in student-centered pedagogical and mentoring practices. Moreover, as students of color and their allies have demanded in college and university protests across the nation, we support the students’ desire to hire faculty who demonstrate a deep commitment to and proven ability in supporting the success of students from historically marginalized economic, social, and cultural groups.

The course load is 3-3 with an option for a one semester pre-tenure research leave after three years of service as a member of the Ordinary Faculty.
