General Qualifications

Having relevant teaching experience, subject matter expertise, and advanced academic credentials and/or substantial practitioner experience in related fields is essential. Sterling encourages applications from candidates who have professionally demonstrated a commitment to interdisciplinary, experiential, outdoor-oriented, hands-on learning through study and work as well as our ecological thinking and action mission, and a commitment to pedagogy that integrates multicultural perspectives in the curriculum and promotes inclusion in the classroom. The College is committed to in-person instruction, but experience and familiarity using online tools will be seen as a strength. Faculty responsibilities include academic advising and service on committees or councils, and contributing to the foundational curriculum of the college, including A Sense of Place, our longstanding student orientation program. Sterling is one of nine federally designated work colleges. As such, new faculty members will also serve as work program supervisors.

Diversity Statement

Sterling College - its Board of Trustees and Faculty Council - has adopted a detailed ten-year strategic initiative, with grant support, that is intended to better promote equity and inclusion across all of its academic programs and in all of the locations in which they take place. The College acknowledges that the land on which we gather is the traditional and unceded territory of the Abenaki and the Shawnee people.
