This is a non-tenure track, non-renewable position for the 2021-22 academic year only.

Our mission is to educate students, faculty, staff, and the larger community to educate and empower students, faculty, staff, and the larger community to critically examine race and racism and advance equity and justice – social, cultural, environmental, political, and economic – as essential steps in becoming ethical citizens and leaders in today’s global community.
The ideal candidate will be able to teach foundational concepts in race and ethnic studies, including but not limited to colonialism and imperialism, racialization and identity formation, power and hegemony, resistance and social movements, and the intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, and ability.
