Education (tenure-track)

Northwestern College invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the education department to begin August 2017.

We seek to hire a vibrant and experienced educator to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in special education and other courses as needed. Strong candidates will possess special education certification and have three to five years of experience in K-12 classrooms, preferably in special education fields. A doctorate in education is preferred and will be required by the time of tenure review; candidates with master’s degrees and a willingness to complete a doctorate will be considered. Additional responsibilities include advising and recruiting students, supervising student teachers, scholarship, and departmental and committee service. This candidate will provide leadership for a proposed master’s degree in special education anticipated to roll out in the summer of 2017.

Affiliated with the Reformed Church in America, Northwestern College seeks candidates with an authentic Christian faith who will support the college’s mission, Reformed and evangelical identity, and commitment to Christian liberal arts as expressed in our Vision for Learning. We seek faculty invested in teaching, collegiality, 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. Accordingly, Northwestern College 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.

Apply online below to and send a letter of interest in which you (1) describe your teaching experience; and (2) interact with our Statement of Christian IdentityVision for Learning and Vision for Diversity. Include a current curriculum vitae/resume.
