California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) is a growing, comprehensive public university committed to serving the diverse people of California, especially the working class and historically under-served populations. The identity of the University is framed by substantive commitment to a multilingual, multicultural, intellectual community which enables students, faculty, and staff to cross institutional boundaries for innovative instruction, broadly defined scholarly and creative activity, and coordinated community service. The curriculum is organized around student learning outcomes. It is global in perspective, and of sufficient breadth and depth to meet local, regional, and statewide needs, specifically those of both isolated rural communities and inner-city populations. As a University that educates students of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, we value ethnic and cultural background and a diverse faculty and staff. CSUMB welcomes applicants who are knowledgeable about and interested in working within a cross-cultural learning environment.
The Division of Humanities and Communication (HCOM), a unique interdisciplinary home to two degree programs—a BA in Integrated Studies and a BA in Human Communication, seeks an Assistant Professor of U.S. History qualified to prepare a diverse group of students, many from historically underserved communities, for leadership in a multicultural society. HCOM is committed to inclusive excellence, innovation in interdisciplinary teaching and learning, quality scholarship, as well as collaborative and imaginative program development. HCOM values an educational environment of cultural and linguistic diversity and gender equity, ethical reflection and practice, and a commitment to working across disciplinary boundaries. The curriculum prepares students to be ethical, creative, and critical thinkers and doers in a multicultural and increasingly interconnected global society. Toward that end, through its degree programs, HCOM offers students a comprehensive, interdisciplinary humanities and liberal arts education for the 21st century.
