This position opening presents an opportunity to join a department that upholds a commitment to critical pedagogy, prepares future teachers as public intellectuals, and actively engages matters of teaching, learning, schooling, and educational policy. It is also an opportunity to join a campus community working to build on the College's equity-oriented founding tradition, fulfill its commitment to pedagogical excellence, and support its students to "put the liberal arts into action" for the public good.
