The position is a full-time tenure track faculty position and will be responsible for instruction currently at the undergraduate level. We are looking for candidates who are interested in helping to shape this exciting program at the college as we expand our existing Social Work minor into a Bachelor of Social Work and obtain CSWE accreditation for the program. The college is also developing a Master of Social Work program building upon the BSW program. Successful candidates will work with students in the program, provide online and on-campus instruction and program development, and engage in scholarship in their areas of disciplinary interest. Course releases will be provided for the fulfillment of the administrative responsibilities of the position.

Core faculty in the program are responsible for course delivery, assessment, and curriculum development, as well as engagement with students in the capacity of mentor and academic advisor.

Given the college’s commitment to supporting a diverse and inclusive faculty, members of historically underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. The BSW program includes a strong commitment to preparing social workers who are devoted to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
