Monmouth College, a private liberal arts college and member of the Associated Colleges of the Midwest, seeks applications for a tenure-track position as coordinator of our Communication Across the Curriculum (CAC) Program, a comprehensive four-year program in which writing, speaking, and listening are intentionally integrated across our curriculum.

 

Required qualifications are a PhD in Composition & Rhetoric, English, Communication Studies, or another related field, and the ability to teach courses in writing, in introductory speaking and listening, and within the College’s signature Integrated Studies sequence. Experience with Writing Across the Disciplines and the ability to direct and train student tutors in our campus Writing Center is also an expectation. Because Monmouth College is committed to being an inclusive community regarding race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, and religious commitments, we invite candidates to describe how their professional experience, scholarship, and service will contribute to these efforts to serve our diverse student population. The successful candidate will demonstrate a capacity for and commitment to supporting the college’s CAC Program, which includes maintaining, administering, and assessing the CAC program. The coordinator will also devise and oversee development and support for faculty across the disciplines as they implement writing and speaking assignments in their classrooms, particularly in Integrated Studies. The coordinator also works closely with the CAC advisory committee, composition faculty, and the Communication Studies Basic Course Director to clarify methods, outcomes, and assessment across the college’s first-year experience. The faculty member will teach two courses per year, including the Writing Fellows (student tutors course), introductory communication, first-year argument and composition, or an Integrated Studies course. Candidates should articulate how their scholarship and professional development agenda inform their work as CAC Coordinator. Finally, candidates should describe how their approach to teaching writing, reading, speaking, and listening fits Monmouth College’s commitment to the values and mission of a liberal arts college (https://ou.monmouthcollege.edu/about/mission-statement.aspx).

 

Please forward a letter of application, curriculum vita, evidence of teaching excellence, statement of CAC philosophy, unofficial transcripts, and three letters of recommendation via email to: Prof. David Wright, CAC Search Chair, [email protected] Review of applications will begin Feb. 1 and continue until the position is filled.
