NOTES:

• When I followed the link above, I came to a posting for a comp position. According to the UA website, they want a rhetoric specialist. Could someone please let me know if I'm missing something here? Thanks.

A (11/7): There was indeed a US Lit. job being advertised by this school; you can still see the ad here:

http://www.higheredjobs.com/search/details.cfm?JobCode=175680961&Title=Assistant%20Professor%20of%20English

However, the posting number given in the HigherEdJobs.com ad (0065128) seems to have disappeared from their online system. Why this position has become a comp. job instead, I do not know. Those interested in the original posting might want to inquire with HR: Phone: 907-786-4608.

Went through a rigamarole with this myself--the chair of the department had no idea what was going on; the HR dept. sent me the "right" link and it was for a linguistics log. I communicated with a number of people about this to no avail. I submitted an application (or what I could of it) online and Interfolio'd the rest.

11/25 - I haven't heard anything from them, but I did what the above poster did; applied best I could, Interfolio'd the rest.

NOTES:

NOTE from the Chronicle: "Westmont College is a nationally ranked liberal arts college in the Protestant evangelical tradition. Faculty are expected to embrace the mission of the college, relating their faith to their teaching, to their scholarship, to their mentoring, and to their lives. We desire faculty who are able to engage in interdisciplinary dialog and pedagogy. The college has a strong commitment to build a culturally and academically diverse faculty of the highest caliber. Westmont is an EEO employer, seeking to be diverse in people and programs consistent with its mission."

From the job application: the Community of Life Statement and the Behavioral Expectations one must sign to be considered for a job at Westmont:

COMMUNITY LIFE STATEMENT

When Jesus Christ summed up the way His
followers were to treat each other, He said,
"Love one another as I have loved you," and
"Love your neighbor as yourself." On a college
campus, this kind of love must take into
consideration the relationship between learning
and community.

The college expects our members who
choose to marry to abide by the
commitment to lifelong heterosexual
marriage, and, whether single or
married, to strive to maintain healthy
family relationships.

The college does not condone practices
that Scripture forbids. Such activities
include but are not limited to occult
practices, drunkenness, theft, profanity,
and dishonesty. Such activities also
include sexual relations outside of
marriage and homosexual practice. Westmont further recognizes that
Scripture condemns "sins of the spirit"
such as covetousness, jealousy, pride,
and lust. By their very nature, these sins
are more difficult to discern. Because
they lie at the heart of the relationship
between the individual and God they
are of central concern to the Westmont
community.

And so we pray: Come, Lord Jesus.
I agree with the above Articles of Faith.
