Duties and Responsibilities:

The School of Education (SOE) at Loyola University Chicago invites applications for two 1-year, full-time, non-tenure track positions as clinical assistant professor of teacher education. These individuals will join the Teaching and Learning (T&L) program area which focuses on Loyola’s teacher education program (TLLSC, or Teaching, learning and Leading with Schools and Communities). The selected individuals will join faculty in the SOE’s CAEP-accredited undergraduate and graduate programs, each of which is shaped around the SOE’s conceptual framework of advancing professionalism in the service of social justice.

The main responsibilities of these positions include the following:

Maintaining a 4/3 teaching load (four in the fall and three in the spring) of undergraduate and graduate teacher education courses and modules. Courses are offered in university classrooms, while modules are field-based learning experiences which primarily take place within partner sites. Enrolled students are pursuing Illinois teaching licensure in early childhood, elementary, secondary, and/or special education.

Fulfilling the service responsibilities of a clinical professor, including advising of students, service to T&L, the SOE, the larger university, community, and profession. Research and publication are not required, but opportunities for collaborative research are available and encouraged.

Joining and supporting efforts to address social justice through anti-racism and other efforts.

Collaborating regularly with T&L faculty across specialty areas in efforts to provide student supports, maintain high quality programming, meet accreditation needs and improve TLLSC.

Maintaining and enhancing existing partnerships with schools and community agencies. This includes building relationships with teachers and administrators on site alongside other faculty members.

Presently, credentials, background and teaching experiences in elementary education or secondary mathematics education (public or private) are preferred, although these positions may also involve the teaching of generalist modules for diverse students who have not yet chosen a specialty area. These modules include topics such as culturally responsive teaching, working with emergent bilingual students, educational psychology, and other topics. Successful candidates’ histories should indicate expertise in teacher education. Experience with clinical supervision is also critical given that TLLSC modules use an apprenticeship approach to building the knowledge and skills of future teachers.

We seek candidates who will collaborate with colleagues across the program, SOE, and larger university to build an anti-racist teacher education program. Candidates will also demonstrate a strong commitment to urban education and dedication to serving a historically minoritized P-12 student body in the greater Chicago area consistent with Loyola University Chicago’s commitment to advancing social justice through transformative education. Candidates will demonstrate a commitment to collegiality and collaboration within Teaching and Learning program and larger SOE and University community.

Working at Loyola University Chicago

Loyola University Chicago, a private university founded in 1870 as St. Ignatius College, is the nation’s largest Jesuit, Catholic University and the only one located in Chicago. Shaped by our city and our Jesuit traditions, Loyola University Chicago offers students an educational environment unmatched for its diversity of thought and experience.

Loyola University Chicago comprises four campuses: Lake Shore (LSC), Water Tower (WTC), Health Sciences (HSC), and the John Felice Rome Center in Italy, and is home to eleven schools and colleges: Arrupe College, Quinlan School of Business, Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing, Stritch School of Medicine, College of Arts and Sciences, School of Communication, School of Continuing and Professional Studies, School of Education, School of Law, School of Social Work, and Graduate School. Loyola also features course locations in Beijing, China; Saigon-Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Vernon Hills, Illinois (Cuneo Mansion and Gardens); and a Retreat and Ecology Campus in Woodstock, Illinois.

With three campuses spread throughout the greater Chicago area, students have access to hundreds of cultural institutions as well as thousands of internships and networking opportunities with the city's Fortune 500 companies. Study-abroad programs at our Rome and Beijing Centers provide engagement with the global community and economy.

While rigorous programs of research and study are one hallmark of a Jesuit education, we're not just preparing students for a career, we're preparing them for life. We challenge our students to learn broadly, to think critically, to serve generously, to lead with integrity, to respect diversity. We come from all faiths and ethnic and economic backgrounds, with a common purpose of building a better society.

Recognizing Loyola’s excellence in education, U.S.News and World Report has ranked Loyola consistently among the "top national universities" in its annual publications, and named the University a "best value" in its 2008 rankings.

Our faculty take a person-centered approach to education. They’re not just here to teach students what they know, they’re here to teach them to think critically and creatively and to reach for their own discoveries.
