Mount Holyoke College is an undergraduate liberal arts college for women with 2,200 students and 220 faculty.  The college is located about 90 miles west of Boston in the Connecticut River valley, and is a member of the Five College Consortium consisting of Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith Colleges and the University of Massachusetts. 

Mount Holyoke College is committed to enriching the educational experience it offers through the diversity of its faculty, administration, and staff members.  Mount Holyoke seeks to recruit and support a broadly diverse staff who will contribute to the college's excellence, diversity of viewpoints and experiences, and relevance in a global society.   

Candidates will submit a cover letter describing what they bring to the position and why they are interested in it, a CV, and a statement about engaging and mentoring a diverse student body. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of reference submitted on their behalf. We recommend early submission because electronic prompts to three referees will be generated automatically (and letters of reference accepted) only after the completed application has been submitted.  

Applications completed by May 30th will receive first consideration. However, applications received after screening has begun will be considered at the discretion of the college. The position remains open until filled.
