Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies
Institution: Champlain College
Location: Burlington, VT
Job Number: R-007260 -- Exciting, Engaging and Empowering our Community!
Core Division: Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies
Champlain College invites applications for a full-time faculty at the rank of Assistant Professor in Interdisciplinary Studies to begin August 2020. We specifically welcome candidates with interdisciplinary teaching expertise in one or more of the following areas: postcolonial studies, decoloniality, critical race theory, queer of color critique, ethnic studies, indigenous and/or settler colonialism studies, disability studies, feminist theories, gender and sexuality studies, transnational studies, or composition and rhetoric with a specialization in any of the above areas.
As we strive to create the most intellectually diverse, equitable, and inclusive institution that we can, we especially encourage candidates from historically underrepresented groups to apply.
We seek applicants whose scholarship and teaching practice mutually inform and energize one another, since the Core at Champlain provides a four-year integrated, interdisciplinary curriculum for all traditional undergraduate students.
All applicants should have a record of excellence in teaching, demonstrating a thoughtful, critical, and student-centered pedagogy, and experience teaching first-year students is preferred. Our revised first-year curriculum emphasizes experiential, place-based, and project-based pedagogies, so we are especially interested in candidates with experience and interest in these approaches. The typical teaching load is four courses per semester, and there is an expectation of divisional and college-wide service. Champlain's full-time faculty are employed on a multi-year contract model (non-tenure). A terminal degree is required by August 2020, and a Ph.D. is preferred.
To apply, please submit both a CV and a letter of application indicating familiarity with and interest in our approach to general education, discussing how you envision contributing to our work in the Core. Additionally, submit a separate statement describing your experience with and/or vision for mentoring underrepresented students, as this could contribute to Champlain's diversity, equity and inclusion goals.

But let us not forget that “other Vermont College” headed – and destroyed by Bernie Sanders’ wife…
Ripped from the pages of the New York Times and retrieved from the bottom of the birdcage: Jane Sanders and the Messy Demise of a Vermont College
If Jane O’Meara Sanders had had her way, a stretch of prime real estate in Burlington along Lake Champlain would have become a college campus. Instead, it became a cloud lingering over her reputation and her husband’s presidential campaign.
In 2010, as president and would-be savior of Burlington College — a tiny alternative school without a campus in this small offbeat city — Ms. Sanders championed a deal to buy a waterfront spread from the local Roman Catholic diocese. Within a year, she was ousted, and the college limped toward obsolescence, buried under debt.
Then the story of the failing college turned into a political storm.
Today, Mr. Sanders is among the front-runners challenging President Trump, and Jane Sanders is — as she long has been — his closest political adviser and confidante. A sprawling housing development is now rising on the lakeside land. But questions about the Burlington College deal live on.
Federal prosecutors have not spoken publicly about their investigation, though late last year, Ms. Sanders’s lead lawyer said he had been told it had been closed. And while doubts remain about the contribution pledges claimed by the college, the lawyer has said that neither Ms. Sanders nor her husband was even questioned by investigators, indicating a lack of significant evidence of a crime [they say]. Is this more selective FBI investigation and DOJ inaction? Read the story <here>
America’s educational institutions are little more than playgrounds for progressives and seek to indoctrinate rather than educate.
We are so screwed.
