NOTES:

  • How is it possible that  MLA interviews are scheduled? The deadline via Interfolio and the deadline provided on the MLA Job List is tomorrow (20th)? Surely, no one could have an  interview prior to the actual deadline for application materials... 
  • Either there is some misinformation floating around or the search committee decided to invite one candidate to interview before reviewing the rest of the files. That seems unlikely, of course. But all applicants go this today (11/21), I presume, from interfolio: "Thank you to all who have applied for Moravian College's Assistant Professor of English position. The application period has now ended. Applicants who are invited for preliminary interviews will be notified by mid-December 2015." Perhaps the original poster wants to confirm their interview? Or perhaps it was just hearsay to begin with?
  • I can attest that the search committee has begun scheduling MLA interviews since I have one. I get the impression that this department moved very swiftly through their heap. (12/4)
  • They seem to be moving in waves.

If you're interested in learning what it's like to be a POW at this PWI (Primarily White Institution), check out the following blog by a former employee, including the entry, "Me No Speak English": http://theviewfromherebyelenatyee.blogspot.com/2015_06_01_archive.html

  • Good to know. After glancing through their Statement of Faith and Community Life Statement, I realized that they need to clarify that Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and gays need not apply to this evangelical Protestant institution.
  • 2. I found this to be scary (found in the "faculty application" everyone must sign). It gives approval to an agency called HireRight to do a background check. I wonder what they're trying to find... "The background report may contain information concerning your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, mode of living and (in limited circumstances), credit standing. The types of information that may be obtained include, but are not limited to: social security number verifications; address history; credit reports and history; criminal records and history; public court records; driving records; accident history; worker’s compensation claims; bankruptcy filings; educational history verifications (e.g., dates of attendance, degrees obtained); employment history verifications (e.g., dates of employment, salary information, reasons for termination, etc.); personal and professional references checks; professional licensing and certification checks and other information bearing on your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, mode of living and credit standing."
  • I didn't know much about this college, so I asked a friend in Santa Barbara what he knew. He said that among local residents the college is best known for the fact that "students once burned crosses on the lawn, and the NAACP got involved." 
  • Considering the high tuition and the declining enrollment, it's no wonder that Westmont made the top 10 list of financially unsustainable Christian colleges: http://www.christianpost.com/news/some-christian-colleges-on-financially-unsustainable-path-78882/#CkXTXTCoKjoGSbt7.99

  • Anyone else having trouble finding this ad to apply to on AJO or the University employment page? 11/30 (12/2 shoot, just saw this.  If I remember correctly "research" was spelled wrong (researach I think) on AJO, so I had to keep looking it up under employer "Oregon" and job title "postdoctoral."  I hope you found it before the deadline.)
