Adjunct Faculty, Public Policy & Community Engaged Research

Job description



Adjunct Faculty, Public Policy & Community Engaged Research

Dominican is located in Marin County, whose affluent and progressive reputation is juxtaposed with a reality of extreme economic and racial disparity. While the campus is situated in a privileged neighborhood, our institution has deep ties in surrounding neighborhoods where resources and representation for minoritized people are exceedingly disproportionate. Dominican is committed to improving our internal policies and practices related to equity and inclusion; it is also demonstrably engaged in collaborating with local, long-term community partners to improve equity and inclusion in Marin.

Our student body is remarkably diverse and we strive to see that diversity reflected in our faculty and staff. We seek candidates from all backgrounds who, through their research, teaching, work ethic, and service, will meaningfully contribute to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus and county.

Resume/CV and cover letter are required and must be attached in attachment section of the application process (Step 2). Refer to the posting instructions for any additional materials that may be required.
