The Department of Accounting and Finance at the College of Saint Benedict & Saint John's University (CSB/SJU) invites applications for a
one-year, full-time term faculty position to begin in August 2021.
The CSB/SJU Accounting & Finance program is one of the
strongest in Minnesota, particularly in a liberal arts setting. The department is comprised of nine full-time and one part-time faculty
dedicated to close working relationships with students to enhance not only student academic learning but overall student development. In the
vast majority of years, our students' CPA pass rates are well above both state and national averages.
The College of Saint
Benedict, a liberal arts college for women, and Saint John's University, a liberal arts college for men, are located in the central lakes
area of Minnesota, surrounded by more than 3,000 acres of pristine forests, prairies, and lakes. The campuses are minutes away from Saint
Cloud, an increasingly diverse regional center with a population of over 100,000, and 70 miles from Minneapolis and St. Paul. Some CSB/SJU
faculty and staff choose to reside locally, while others commute from the Twin Cities. Both St. Cloud and the Twin Cities offer a wide range
of fine arts, cultural, dining, recreational, and sporting opportunities.
CSB/SJU are Catholic colleges in the Benedictine
tradition enlivened by values of community, hospitality, stewardship, and justice. The schools are dedicated to cultivating an equitable,
inclusive community founded on respect for all persons. Students, staff and faculty from many diverse belief systems and backgrounds
collectively bring a rich dimension to the academic, cultural, and religious experience at CSB/SJU. We welcome faculty who devote themselves
with passion and integrity to their disciplines and to a transformative education of their students. Please view our brochure
Education in the Catholic and Benedictine Tradition
With a total enrollment of approximately 3,300 students, faculty members
