The candidate will exhibit a love of Christ, an embrace of the Gospel, and support for the college’s mission as expressed in our Statement of Christian IdentityVision for Learning and Vision for Diversity. Northwestern College identifies as Reformed in commitment, evangelical in engagement and ecumenical in spirit.

We seek faculty invested in teaching, a program of scholarly activity, and the mission of excellence in the liberal arts as a vital expression of commitment to Christ’s redemptive work in the world.

Northwestern College also seeks to more fully reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the body of Christ in its faculty, staff, administration and students. Women and candidates from historically underrepresented groups are enthusiastically encouraged to apply.
