About St. Norbert College: St. Norbert College, a thriving, nationally ranked Catholic liberal arts college known for its academic excellence, international focus, and leadership and service opportunities, is situated on an attractive, riverside campus in De Pere, Wisconsin, a community contiguous with the city of Green Bay. St. Norbert is the only college in the world sponsored by the Norbertines, a Catholic order devoted to community, education, and serving the needs of others.
The division of Academic Affairs provides safe, inclusive, and anti-racist educational and work experiences for our faculty, staff, and students of color, congruent with our Catholic, Norbertine, and liberal arts values. Therefore, we invite candidates who have research interests, pedagogical experience, or lived experience that demonstrates a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging to join our community of teaching and learning. We are seeking to hire several new faculty members across the college as part of a cohort of scholars who are committed to meeting together, working as a group to infuse equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging (EDIB) into the curriculum. This past year we conducted a national search to hire an inaugural dean of curriculum and senior diversity officer, which highlights the importance of EDIB work in the curriculum.
As one of the nation’s top Catholic liberal arts colleges, St. Norbert builds on the beliefs and practices of an ancient religious order while responding to the current needs of its students and communities. Today at St. Norbert College, the spirit of Norbert of Xanten, who founded the Norbertine order of priests in the twelfth century, lives through this modern, bustling community dedicated to transforming and empowering its students. The college has seen remarkable development in the past decade, particularly the construction and renovation of more than $150 million in campus facilities and infrastructure. St. Norbert is characterized by recent strong enrollments, as evidenced over the past ten years by the largest, most diverse, and most talented first-year classes in the college’s history.
At St. Norbert College, a holistic approach to students characterizes the curriculum and classroom; faculty use their award-winning research to challenge and encourage students to greater curiosity, and students learn and collaborate both in and outside the classroom in an integrated experience. St. Norbert College is organized into four academic divisions – Humanities, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Visual & Performing Arts – and the Donald J. Schneider School of Business & Economics.
