Position Summary

Are you an educator who believes that education serves the greater good by providing all students access to a better life? Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) may be the place for you.

The Psychology Department is seeking to fill two positions, one with a specialization in developmental psychology or a related field, the other with graduate coursework in human sexuality, gender studies, multicultural psychology and/or related fields. A strong psychology candidate should demonstrate a proven ability to teach college-level psychology courses, with a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching using evidence-based, inclusive, and antiracist pedagogies that support diversity, equity, and inclusion while fostering knowledge, skills, and a spirit of inquiry. Additionally, excellence in oral, written, and interpersonal communication skills is expected. The ideal candidate must be able to form collaborative and supportive relationships that enhance our commitment to student success, student engagement, and equity initiatives in higher education. Teaching assignments may include in-person, hybrid, and online courses. Full-time faculty are expected to participate on committees in the department, school of Liberal Arts, and the college. Candidates should be committed to student-centered, outcomes-based education with experience incorporating multiple instructional strategies, including the use of technology. Additionally, candidates should be proven team players with an ongoing commitment to personal and professional development and the ability to work effectively with a diverse faculty, staff, and student body.

The ideal candidate for a faculty position at AACC understands that community colleges are positioned to fundamentally transform people’s lives and, as a result, society itself. We’re looking for those with a demonstrated commitment to continuous improvement in disciplinary knowledge, pedagogy and successful collaboration with colleagues in efforts aligned with student success and completion. The successful candidate also embraces the idea of helping students achieve their goals and approaches academic and inclusive excellence as moral imperatives, as evidenced by a strong commitment to anti-racism, diversity, equity and inclusion.

We also welcome those who are energized by supporting a diverse set of learners and those who embrace the notion of lifelong learning and continuous improvement. The successful applicant will also demonstrate experience with the interdisciplinary and collaborative structures of diverse professional work.
