The successful candidate will demonstrate the qualifications and enthusiasm to teach a broad range of philosophy courses in the Department of Languages, Literature, and Philosophy with majors in English, Spanish, and Women’s Studies, and minors in Philosophy and Religious Studies.

We were founded in 1884 as the nation’s first public women’s college and have been co-educational since 1982. We are an equal opportunity employer, committed to fostering a diverse faculty, staff, and student body. In addition to teaching, we value scholarly research, creative production, continued professional engagement, and service.
