Faculty Opportunities

If you’re interested in experimenting with innovative pedagogies in Strong College, contact Dr. Jennifer Stephens, Director of the Residential College Office.

We can offer you the opportunity to try out new approaches to teaching in a variety of formats. We look for instructors who want to make concepts of sustainability and fieldwork research the focal point of courses in Strong College’s core curriculum.  In these courses, we will look for ways to increase students’ ‘research readiness’ and their ability to navigate the multiple literacies of this (post)modern world.
