The Department of Human Services is seeking applicants for its adjunct labor pool. The Department of Human Services is dedicated to providing strong and innovative instruction that promotes student sensitivity to diversity, outreach and community based practice skills, critical thinking, research-informed action, cultural responsiveness, and inter-professional collaboration. Instruction will occur through distance delivery, face-to-face on campus methods, or through hybrid approaches combining these methods.

Acceptance into the hiring pool does not constitute a hiring agreement, nor does having worked one semester guarantee that a position will be available in subsequent semesters. Hiring decisions for temporary faculty are made on a semester-by-semester basis, according to the needs of that semester's schedule, and needs that arise during the course of a given semester. We seek to identify talented adjunct faculty the Department of Human Services can invest in, provide training and mentoring to prior to and during instruction, and establish long term working relationships to enhance the diversity and practice experience of the human service faculty for the benefit of our students and programs.

Knowledge, Skills, Abilities: Candidates will be evaluated on past teaching experiences, expertise and experience relevant to effective teaching in the area of need, and potential for providing high-quality instruction to undergraduate students. Preferred Experience & Education:
Two to three years related experience.
Required Experience & Education:

Applicants must have experience relevant to teaching specific course content in one or more curricular areas: human diversity; human behavior; paraprofessional counseling, conflict and collaboration, organizations, and/or communities; case management; research; evaluation; and practicum supervision. A master's degree in human services or a closely related discipline is required and a doctoral degree in human services, counseling, social work, or closely related field is preferred. Candidates should also have at least two years of practice experience in human services.
