Academic Sustainability Programs invites applications from faculty members in all academic units, to co-teach in our interdisciplinary courses in sustainability during the 2014-15 academic year.
Each of our courses typically is co-taught by a team of 2 or more faculty members from diverse disciplines, with an effort made to pair faculty with technical/scientific expertise, together with those having expertise in the social sciences/liberal arts. These courses are taken by students pursuing the Minor in Sustainability Studies, and they draw also non-minor students from all 9 colleges across campus.
Each co-instructor will be paid $4,000 (plus benefits) per course. Payment may be made either to the instructor's department to buy out part of their regular teaching load, or directly to the instructor as compensation for teaching an overload. Instructors must obtain permission from their department heads in order to be hired.
To view further information on these courses, and to submit an application, go to this LINK.
The deadline for submission of applications to teach in Fall semester courses is February 15, and the deadline to teach in Spring semester courses is September 1. However, we encourage early applications; the application process will remain open until all positions are filled.
