In deciding whether to apply for a position at Utica College, candidates are strongly encouraged to consider the UC mission and culture to help determine their potential success at http://www.utica.edu/instadvance/marketingcomm/about/. Our Mission and Values Statement includes a commitment to fostering diversity in background,  perspective, and experience within an environment that is dedicated to the freedom of expression and the open sharing of ideas.  At UC, diversity means that we are a community that represents a range of human experience and makes conscious choices to appreciate, respect, and learn from each other. Utica College actively seeks and welcomes applications from candidates with exceptional qualifications, particularly those with demonstrable commitments to a more inclusive society.

To apply, submit a letter of application, CV, evidence of teaching excellence, writing sample, and three references. Candidates are asked to submit a reflective statement about teaching.  Since Utica College strives to be a diverse, yet inclusive, community, it is essential that you include in this statement a reflection on the kinds of experiences you have had, and the kinds of approaches you would take, teaching and working with a diverse student body. (For the definition of diversity that we use at Utica College, please see the following web page: http://www.utica.edu/instadvance/marketingcomm/about/diversity/aboutus.cfm.) Reflective statements that do not address diversity will be considered incomplete.
