Position Title

Business Management 2019-2020 Visiting Faculty

Job Summary

This is a full-time Visiting faculty position for the 2019-2020 academic year.

The Evergreen State College seeks a faculty member with broad training and experience in business who is interested in teaching in a collaborative, liberal arts context. The successful candidate will join colleagues dedicated to expanding our undergraduate business programs. Candidates must have the ability/interest to teach principles and methods of business and management. Expertise in two or more of the following areas is required: management, marketing, macroeconomics, accounting, leadership, finance, information technologies, business ethics, organizational development, business entrepreneurship, business law, and sustainable business practices. We strongly encourage applicants who have had experience teaching and/or working with students from underserved populations and whose teaching emphasizes developing entrepreneurial leaders for social impact.

Candidates must also have the capacity to teach specific topics that illustrate the role of business in developing and maintaining a vibrant economy at multiple scales, from local to international. Possible themes include managing small to large enterprises, entrepreneurship, ESG business practices, workforce development, and other forms of business organizations.

Faculty members at Evergreen generally organize themselves in teaching teams that have a significant amount of direct contact with students and enjoy a high degree of freedom to determine the subject matter, pace, emphasis, and classroom strategies. The selected finalist will team teach in two separate full-time programs: Business Fundamentals (fall/winter) and Intermediate Business Foundations (spring). New faculty also participate in Evergreen’s orientation and development opportunities.

The College reserves the right to extend searches or not offer positions advertised. As a condition of employment, persons hired must provide proof of identity and employment eligibility within three (3) days of beginning work. All position offers are contingent on funding. Persons with disabilities can receive accommodations in the hiring process by contacting the Faculty Hiring Coordinator. The Evergreen State College is an equal opportunity employer.

Job Expectations

Most faculty will teach in full-time, team-taught, 16-credit programs connected by a particular theme or line of inquiry. Faculty are generally responsible for evaluating 25 students/quarter, though their programs may include up to 50-75 students, depending on the size of their teaching team. This arrangement allows for in-depth, interdisciplinary and experiential learning, and the building of strong learning communities. Faculty are also responsible for advising students as they reflect on their learning process, develop a pathway of study, and formulate their own areas of concentration. 

Our teaching is student-centered, which means we are interested in helping students develop strong skills in critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaborative work. Because over 80% of our students come from underserved and marginalized groups, we are particularly invested in approaches to teaching that emphasize diversity and equity, that provide opportunities for challenge and growth, and that foster a learning environment where all are welcome and all can learn from each other. 

A complete list of faculty responsibilities can be found in the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
