College Ten: Enhancement Courses Lecturer Pool (Ongoing)
College Ten at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an ongoing pool of part-time lecturers who may be appointed to teach College Ten enhancement courses under the general direction of the College Ten Provost. A complete list of the College Ten courses and their descriptions can be viewed in the UCSC Catalog. These courses offer students the opportunity for small, seminar-style classes at the college level and they are designed to augment or enhance general education requirements and disciplinary courses. The enhancement courses focus on College Ten's theme of Social Justice and Community. Selected candidates will contribute to this theme and in some cases they will have the opportunity to design or help develop new enhancement courses. Although trained in one discipline, applicants should be comfortable working in an interdisciplinary environment and draw from expertise in one or more of the following disciplinary subject areas: humanities, arts, social sciences, or life sciences.
Applicants with any of the following qualifications are strongly encouraged to apply: Record of effectively working with students from a wide range of social, cultural, and academic backgrounds; Familiarity with current theory and research in social justice and community; Master's degree or completion of at least one year of a Ph.D. program; and/or a minimum of two years' teaching experience at the university level.
The campus is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their teaching and other assigned duties.
