General Summary

The Center for Civic Engagement, which administers the Civic Engagement and Responsibility Minor, (an Interdisciplinary Studies Minor) seeks to build a pool of non-tenure-track instructor applicants to be drawn from during the 2022-2023 academic year. Applications are accepted and reviewed as vacancies become available. There may not be an actual vacancy at the time you apply. Positions are part-time and may only be for one semester at a time, depending on School needs. These positions are represented by the Illinois State University Education Association and may have associated dues or fees.

Illinois State University offers major and minor programs in Interdisciplinary Studies that allow students to synthesize knowledge that spans two or more academic disciplines. Illinois State’s core values are at the heart of the Civic Engagement and Responsibility minor. This interdisciplinary minor prepares students to enact social change and to develop an awareness of personal social responsibility that includes active engagement in their communities. Students in the minor collaborate with community partners to create a more just and equitable world. The minor gives students opportunities to sharpen their analysis of social issues, practice public problem-solving skills, reflect on civic engagement experiences with an appreciation for individual and community strengths, and enact a commitment to ethical civic action. The minor includes a special Urban Teacher Preparation concentration for teacher education majors (at any level/discipline) interested in preparing to teach in urban communities. This concentration includes courses that have a strong focus on diversity, anti-racism, and community-engaged classrooms.

The Center for Civic Engagement supports our core value of civic engagement through programs, resources, and administrative support for campus initiatives like the American Democracy Project and the Civic Engagement and Responsibility minor.
Illinois State University recognizes that a diverse faculty, staff, and student body enriches the educational experiences of the entire campus and greater community. The Center for Civic Engagement seeks candidates with a demonstrated commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism, who can support the Center’s vision of a more just and equitable world. Candidates who have successfully collaborated with a diverse range of faculty/staff, students, and community partners, and who can contribute to a climate of inclusivity and equity are especially welcomed. Black people, Indigenous peoples, People of Color, persons with disabilities, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, veterans, and women are encouraged to apply.
