Full Consideration Date: 03/01/2021
The University of Northern Iowa’s Department of Social Work seeks applications for a three-year term online Instructor position, starting August 2021.

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences is proud to announce a cluster hire initiative for multiple faculty across a range of disciplines (History, Psychology and Social Work) whose scholarly/creative focus explores the richness of diverse backgrounds, the challenges posed by inequalities, and/or strategies to address issues of access and inclusion. Our goal is to reflect our values of diversity and inclusion as we build regional and national interdisciplinary strengths in these areas. Given our commitment to community engagement and engaged scholarship, we seek to appoint faculty who serve diverse communities both on and beyond campus. Faculty hired as part of this initiative will serve within departments connected to their specific discipline and contribute with colleagues to interdisciplinary curricular development that expands our course offerings in areas related to equity, diversity and inclusion.
The University of Northern Iowa provides a high-quality education, purposefully guiding students to find and develop their strengths and prepare them for success after college. We have a bold vision that we will be a diverse and inclusive campus community that provides an engaged education empowering students to lead locally and globally. As we advance our work to become an equity-oriented institution and realize our vision, we seek to elevate the diversity of our faculty across disciplines, departments, and colleges and to build an inclusive teaching and learning environment. Equity vision hires will be supported by faculty on campus who are working to reimagine our curriculum and pedagogy and to build equitable practices for tenure and promotion; policy review, development and implementation; and student retention, persistence, and success. They will be welcomed to join these efforts.
