We are particularly interested in receiving applications from women and members of historically underrepresented groups.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: Candidates will be expected to meet the requirements of excellence in teaching, active scholarly and professional work, and service to the University and community. In addition, new faculty are encouraged to develop and participate in activities that support the University's strategic plan. This plan emphasizes three areas: a) alternative modes of instructional delivery to include off-campus and distance learning; b) the learning process, i.e., innovative teaching strategies and/or research on how students learn and apply knowledge over an extended period of time; and c) partnership with the community to enhance social, economic, and cultural conditions.
