  • Closing on: Jun 28 2025

  • UAA College of Health

The UAA Justice Center is holding an open recruitment for adjunct instructors who are interested in expanding their practice to include part-time teaching in undergraduate programs.

The UAA Justice Center is seeking applicants for its adjunct labor pool. The Justice Center 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 Justice Center 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.

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.

Minimum Qualifications:

Adjunct faculty offering lower-division Justice courses are required to hold a Master’s degree in criminal justice, criminology or a related discipline, or equivalent specialized training and/or educational certifications, or a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) and possess two to three years of related experience. Exceptions to these minimum educational and experience requirements may be made on a case-by-case basis, subject to approval by the Justice Center faculty and the Justice Center Director.

New hires will be placed UNAD Adjunct salary table.
