Job Details

The Robert D. Clark Honors College at the University of Oregon is offering a Visiting Faculty Fellowship in Equity, Justice and Inclusion to enhance course offerings in areas promoting equity and inclusion. As a Pro Tempore faculty member, the Visiting Fellow will teach one course in the CHC in either winter or spring term 2022. The course will be taught remotely. The proposed 400-level course can be offered twice a week or weekly. It can be a course the Visiting Fellow has taught at their own institution, providing it addresses the theme described below, or a new course of the candidate’s devising (the UO is on a 10-week quarter system).

In addition to the course, the Visiting Fellow will facilitate a one session interdisciplinary seminar for CHC core faculty members on a topic and readings from their area of specialization. The seminar may be virtual or in-person, depending on the awardee’s preference.

The theme will rotate each year (depending on funding). For the inaugural year of 2021-22, the course should address the theme of Black experiences in the United States. We encourage applications from all disciplines, from courses that address health disparities and environmental justice, to histories of race and anti-Black racism, to courses on literature, media, digital culture and identity. We seek applicants who can contribute to the CHC curriculum through their understanding of the barriers facing Black people, as evidenced by life experiences and educational background. For example, successful applicants may have attended a minority serving institution; applicants may have training or experience enabling them to communicate about the barriers facing Black people; applicants may have participated in, or they may have experience supporting participants in, programs like Summer Research Opportunity Programs or McNair Scholars. Applicants may also have a record of service to advance equity and inclusion; or a record of leadership or significant experience teaching and mentoring Black students. Candidates must have PhD in hand at time of application.

To apply:
