Most of the faculty have earned doctoral degrees from prestigious universities across the nation. The faculty strives to sustain a dynamic teaching and learning environment in a multicultural setting. The Academic Senate provides a forum for faculty, administration, students and others to be represented and consulted regarding such vital issues as budget priorities, academic standards, curriculum and instruction, and student affairs.

Student Life: At CSU Dominguez Hills, there’s more to student life than the classroom. The university offers a dynamic, interactive and enriching community of learners, teachers and peers sharing diverse points of view. There are multitudes of ways for students to pursue interests, get involved, and get the most from their academic experience.

The Region: The South Bay is one of the most culturally, economically, and ethnically diverse areas in the United States, with a largely even distribution of the population with African, Asian/Pacific Islander, European, and Latino ancestry. The university is located in the city of Carson, a city of 93,000 residents and one of the many municipalities that border the city of Los Angeles. Cultural, performance and sports venues in downtown Los Angeles are about 15 minutes away and the South Bay beach communities are a few minutes away to the west and south. The StubHub, a 125-acre sports center developed by AEG and home to Major League Soccer’s L.A. Galaxy, is located on the CSUDH campus.

The campus is strategically located in the heart of a major technological, industrial and transportation complex in Southern California.

Emory University Oxford College (GA) - TT Open Rank - Director of Writing ProgramsEdit

Emory University’s Oxford College http://www.oxford.emory.edu invites applications for a tenure-track position, open rank, open discipline, to serve as the Director of Writing Programs (Emory requisition #66080BR). The tenure-track position will begin fall 2017. The Director will have the responsibility of overseeing the development of a cohesive writing program with clear programmatic Student Learning Outcomes that connect First-Year Writing courses with Continuing Writing courses and establishing consistency across all courses requiring writing at Oxford. Responsibilities will also include developing and offering training, workshops, and seminars for faculty who teach writing courses. The successful candidate will teach two courses per term, with a mix between first-year writing and courses in the candidate’s discipline, with the possibility of a reduced teaching load in the first year.

Qualified candidates will possess a Ph.D. (open discipline) prior to start of appointment and will be able to work across disciplines to establish and support the writing program. Preference will be given to individuals with experience and demonstrated leadership in directing a Writing Center and/or Writing Program. Teaching excellence is a high priority at Oxford College. Candidates must demonstrate a genuine desire to teach in a liberal arts environment that emphasizes close student-faculty interaction and have a strong record of teaching first-year writing successfully to a diverse student population. Experience with supporting multilingual writers is desirable.

Oxford College’s current Writing Program includes a First-Year Writing Requirement, taught through the English Department, and a Continuing Writing Requirement fulfilled through courses in a number of disciplines. Because increasing numbers of students are exempting the first-year writing course, the Director of Writing Programs will provide leadership in rethinking the First-Year Writing Requirement with the possibility of creating a new requirement that is cross-disciplinary, combining writing instruction with an introduction to other disciplines. The DWP will also help determine the disposition of the Writing Center.

The Director of Writing Programs will work closely with other faculty who support the Writing Program including colleagues tasked with supporting multilingual writers. Oxford’s student population is approximately 17% international, many of whom are non-native English speakers, requiring that the writing program be designed to support both non-native English speakers and native speakers.

Applicants must submit with their applications a cover letter, CV, statement of teaching philosophy and transcripts (unofficial transcripts acceptable). Three letters of recommendation should be sent directly from recommenders to oxford-searches@listserv.cc.emory.edu with “Writing Programs” in the subject line. Complete applications received by November 28 will be given full consideration. Instructions for application submission and additional information about this position are available at http://www.oxford.emory.edu/operations/human-resources/employment/job-opportunities/ Direct link for applications: https://sjobs.brassring.com/1033/ASP/TG/cim_jobdetail.asp?partnerid=25066&siteid=5449&areq=66080br

NOTES:

Ohio State University (OH) - Assoc. or Full Professor - Director of the Center for the Study and Teaching of WritingEdit

The College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of English at The Ohio State University invite applications from colleagues at the rank of associate or full professor to serve as the Director of the Center for the Study and Teaching of Writing (CSTW). Founded by Andrea Lunsford in 1999, the CSTW is an independent center within the College of Arts and Sciences that supports the study and teaching of writing across the University through its Writing Center, Writing across the Curriculum (WAC) program, and other initiatives. The CSTW is staffed by two full-time program coordinators, 41 undergraduate and graduate Writing Center consultants, three assistant Writing Center coordinators, and nine WAC associates. We seek a colleague with a national reputation in writing studies who will bring intellectual energy and leadership to this robust program of extensive accomplishment.

This position is a joint appointment with responsibilities in both the Rhetoric, Composition, and Literacy program within the Department of English and the CSTW. As a tenured member of the Department of English, the Director will teach courses, advise and mentor graduate students, and participate in faculty governance. Administrative responsibilities for the CSTW will include supporting and supervising the Director of the Writing Center and the Coordinator of the WAC program, managing the CSTW budget, representing the CSTW at College- and University-level meetings, developing new programs, and cultivating funding sources to extend the scope and mission of the Center.

The Rhetoric, Composition, and Literacy Studies program is composed of 17 tenured and tenure-track faculty on four campuses. With 84 tenured and tenure-track faculty, the Ohio State Department of English is large and vigorous. In addition to digital media studies and rhetoric, composition, and literacy studies, faculty specialize in such areas as literature, disability studies, folklore, creative writing, race studies, film, narrative, and sexuality studies.

Qualifications: Ideal candidates will have a record of demonstrated leadership and successful administrative experience. We are especially interested in writing program administrators with records of innovation and success in grant writing. We envision the new Director as a campus leader in writing-studies research, programming, and administration who will contribute (depending upon his or her areas of scholarly interest) to research and teaching in research methods in writing studies, assessment, multilingual writing, L2 pedagogy, literacy studies, WAC, WID, and/or digital media studies. As an administrator, a scholar, and a teacher with these types of interests and areas of expertise, the Director will stand at a critical point of convergence for interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research. The Director will expand the CSTW’s research profile and support curricular development in composition across the University.

Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. (or equivalent doctoral degree) in English, Rhetoric and Composition, Digital Media Studies, Technical Communication, or a related field. Appointment is contingent on the University’s verification of credentials and other information required by law and/or university policies, including but not limited to a criminal background check.

University of California San Diego (CA) - Marshall College, Dimensions of Culture Writing Program Director - Lecturer with Potential Security of EmploymentEdit

Thurgood Marshall College, formerly known as Third College, was founded in 1970 in a period of transformative social change in the United States and the world. From its beginning, the college has enriched the lives of undergraduates with a commitment to the development of young people as both professionals and engaged citizens. In 1993, the college was named in honor of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Justice Marshall is well known for his dedication to educational opportunity for all, civil rights, freedom of speech, women's rights, and the right to privacy.

Thurgood Marshall College at the University of California, San Diego, is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body, and seeks a Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment (LPSOE) to serve as director of its Dimensions of Culture Writing Program. The LPSOE writing director position is a nine-month (academic-year) appointment. LPSOEs are full members of the Academic Senate of the Faculty of the University of California, San Diego. The position is analogous to a tenure-track assistant professor whose expertise and responsibilities center on undergraduate education.

Thurgood Marshall's Writing Program, “Dimensions of Culture—Diversity, Justice, and Imagination” (DOC), challenges students to develop a historically grounded understanding of the diverse experiences that have shaped U.S. culture. The distinctive core sequence, which serves as the centerpiece of the general education requirements, emphasizes a deep examination of American society. DOC is designed to be an interdisciplinary curriculum that explores the promise of the nation's founding ideals juxtaposed to collective struggles to realize those ideals for all communities. The year-long Dimensions of Culture Program introduces TMC students to major issues in the history of the United States with an emphasis on the tension between the nation's founding principles and the inequality and lack of opportunity experienced by various groups over time.

Topics include:

successive waves of immigration
the formation of stratifications based on gender, class, "race," religion, and other categories
the social movements that struggled to fulfill the founding ideals
the role of institutions in the delivery of justice and equity, and
the cultural production that has been shaped by these issues.

All three courses in the lower-division DOC (Diversity, Justice, and Imagination) sequence provide undergraduate students with a critical language that allows them to analyze social problems in an intelligent and grounded fashion. In addition to attending core curriculum faculty lectures, students will participate in small discussion sections led by graduate student Teaching Assistants.

Details about the program may be found at: http://marshall.ucsd.edu/doc/index.html

The Dimensions of Culture Writing Program Director will be an academic leader who, in addition to teaching in the program, will contribute to its design and help define its pedagogical vision. The Director will take the leadership role, in collaboration with the College Provost and the College Writing Advisory Committee, in curricular design; successfully recruit, train, and supervise graduate teaching assistants and lecturers; monitor and assess the program's effectiveness and learning outcomes; supervise a small staff; collaborate with the directors of the other colleges' writing programs on campus-wide writing initiatives; and participate as a member of the senior staff of Marshall College in coordinating academic activities and setting goals for the college. The Director will be able to propose courses to teach in Summer Session, which provides additional income.

Required Qualifications- The successful applicant should have:

A Ph.D. in American Studies, Literature with a U.S. focus, History with a U.S. focus, and related fields. Ideal candidates will also have experience in teaching critical reading and writing skills to undergraduate students.
A record of distinguished teaching in a U.S.-related research area with expertise in teaching college-level reading and writing
Strong demonstrated accomplishments in areas contributing to diversity, equity and inclusion, and a desire to play a leadership role in advancing UC San Diego's commitment to achieving excellence and diversity

Preferred Qualification: Experience administering a college writing program or comparable program that utilizes American Studies materials.

Salary: Salary commensurate with experience and based on published University of California pay scales.

Applications should be submitted to the UCSD on-line application collection system, AP-On-Line Recruit, at: http://apptrkr.com/887419. In order to be considered, applicants are to submit a cover letter, CV, teaching statement, 3 reference letters and a separate statement describing past experience in activities that promote diversity and inclusion and/or plans to make future contributions (For further information about contributions to diversity statements, see http://facultyexcellence.ucsd.edu/c2d/).
