Cowell College at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an ongoing pool of part-time lecturers who may be appointed to teach Cowell enhancement courses under the general direction of the Cowell Provost. These courses offer students the opportunity for small, seminar-style classes at the college level and they are designed to augment or enhance general education requirements and disciplinary courses. The enhancement courses run alongside Cowell’s Core Curriculum, which focuses on social justice, community outreach, and critical reading instruction. It is expected that selected candidates will contribute to Cowell College’s emphasis on social justice and community, and in some cases, they will have the opportunity to design or help develop new enhancement courses. Although trained in one discipline, applicants should be comfortable working in an interdisciplinary environment and draw from expertise in one or more of the following disciplinary subject areas: humanities, arts, social sciences, or physical sciences.
