Brandeis University, Waltham, MA-Assisant Professor of African American Literature  - Video Interview Stage[edit | edit source]

The Department of English in the School of Arts and Sciences at Brandeis University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of African American Literature beginning Fall 2020. Though candidates with expertise in gender, sexuality, or digital and media studies are encouraged to apply, we are interested in candidates of any period or sub-field who specialize in African American Literature. The successful candidate will demonstrate the potential for excellence as a scholar and teacher, and will have the PhD by September 2020. While this search originates in the English Department, the successful candidate will have an affiliation with the Department of African and African American Studies. We plan to interview candidates via Zoom in late November or December 2019. This position is subject to budget approval.  Please send a cover letter, c.v., and three letters of recommendation to Faith Smith, Chair of the Search Committee, Department of English, through Interfolio . First consideration will be given to completed applications received by November 1, 2019. (Please note that in the second round of the application process we will ask selected applicants for two writing samples.) An equal opportunity employer, Brandeis University is committed to building a culturally diverse and inclusive intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from candidates with a variety of backgrounds, including those that have been underrepresented in higher education. As part of your cover letter please let us know how your present or future commitments to departmental and institutional equity, diversity and inclusion, are reflected in your creative and intellectual endeavors, your teaching, or your service. 

Deadline: 1 November 2019 (North American Eastern Time, UTC-4)

Acknowledgment received:

Request for additional materials: Writing samples requested [11/15] Did you receive an email? I just logged into Interfolio and it says my application needs a writing sample added, but I did not receive notification from Brandeis (11/15) x 3

Writing sample requested via e-mail [11/15]

Note: I'm not sure to what degree this is an actual request from Brandeis for writing samples; however, my application now says it's incomplete because of missing writing samples. However, no option exists to submit these writing samples on my end.

I emailed the search chair and then just received a response, via Interfolio, that my application was not selected for further review. However, my account still says application incomplete. It seems that it's showing up as incomplete for everyone, but if you can actually upload the samples then you were selected.

I was able to upload the documents but also received the rejection email just now.  Maybe someone can confirm the receipt of a request for additional materials email in addition to the interfolio incomplete app.  Interfolio seems a bit confusing to me. 11/15: if this helps clarify anything, I received an email sent through Interfolio saying that I was "not currently on [their] longer short list" but they were keeping my application open. I guess in case they end up needing more people than the ones they're moving ahead with for now. Good luck, everyone! -I think Interfolio is having a problem with this -- Something similar happened to me for another job (suddenly application was incomplete) but then I recieved a rejection two weeks later. This time around, saw the application was now incomplete, but recieved a request for writing sample via email shortly after. Good luck everyone -- this is brutal. (x2)

-- I believe the same thing happened with the Fordham app on Interfolio. When additional materials are requested through Interfolio, it seems to change every applicant's "delivery" so that they can upload materials, but both Fordham and Brandeis have sent emails to specific candidates asking explicitly for additional materials. They probably didn't even know themselves that Interfolio would work like that. [11/15]

Dear applicants, 

We apologize for this snafu. We, in fact, did not know Interfolio would do this. You should be getting one of 3 individual emails: 

1. You have made it to our longer short list and we have asked for a writing sample (either 1 long piece of up to 50 pgs. or 2 shorter pieces); 

2. You have not made it to the longer short list, but we would like to keep your application open; 

3. You have not made it to our longer short list and we thank you for applying. 

We will try to sort this out with more clarity as soon as possible. 

There were incredible applications, a lot of wonderful material, and we appreciate the work people did to turn in their materials. 

Sincerely, 

A Brandeis Search Committee member

^thank you to the SC member who wrote this. we appreciate you taking the time to clarify things for us!



Rejection (no interview): [11/18]

Preliminary interview scheduled (please specify: MLA, phone, Skype, etc.):

Dear applicants, 

The search committee (comprised of Faith Smith, John Burt, and Dorothy Kim in English and Chad Williams, the Chair of African American Studies) have completed reading all the requested writing samples. We were incredibly impressed by the breadth, scope, rigor, and quality of this field. We delighted in so many of these samples. We would like to thank everyone who sent us their polished and thoughtful work. It was difficult for us to not actually interview all of you who sent us samples. We have finalized our interview list and have notified the candidates who have made it to the interview stage. For those we have not contacted yet, you will be getting formal email notifications by Monday that your application has not been selected for the interview stage. For those who were in our previous group whose applications we were still keeping open, you will also be notified with a formal email by Monday that your application has not been selected for the interview stage. We want to thank everyone again for applying for this position. We have been humbled and dazzled by all the wonderful and brilliant work. 

We also would like to share here what we have sent to the candidates we are interviewing. This is the rubric of the interview questions we will be asking them in our 40 minute interview. We thought we would share here to help any applicants who read this wiki in any current or future interviews who are on the job market. We know how awful the current job market is in academia and we hope this gives some transparency to the kinds of questions departments may be asking candidates. Thanks again everyone for applying. We have really appreciated your work and your time. 

Sincerely, 

The Search Committee 

Interview Questions: 

a)     introduce yourself by telling us about your current research, and then a future project or projects, during which time we may ask you specific questions about your writing sample(s);

b)    talk about your teaching, including specific discussion of a lower-level course, an upper-level course, and a graduate course that you could offer;

c)     talk about classroom and campus contexts for thinking about questions of diversity, equity and inclusion, including difficult questions in the classroom;

d)    question us about departmental and institutional aspects of the position. 

While we imagine that each of these segments will take roughly 10 minutes, we see them as guidelines to a conversation in which we will be taking cues from each other and responding to each other’s questions and observations (as naturally as it is possible to do so in the context of an interview, and a virtual one at that!). We hope that you will feel free to stop us or ask us to repeat ourselves during the interview whenever necessary. 


^ thank you to the search committee member who posted this! This has been perhaps the most ethically run search this season, for which I can't thank you all enough. Congrats to all those who were invited to interview!

Job ID: 20437
Compensation: Competitive
Closing Date: Open until filled with review of applications to begin on July 15, 2019

Performs teaching, research and guidance duties in area(s) of expertise. Shares responsibility for committee and department assignments including administrative, supervisory, and other functions.

The Graduate Center is the focal point for advanced teaching and research at The City University of New York (CUNY), the nation's largest urban public university. With over 35 doctoral and master’s programs of the highest caliber, the Graduate Center fosters pioneering research and scholarship in the arts and sciences and prepares students for careers in universities and the private, nonprofit, and government sectors. The Graduate Center’s commitment to research and scholarship for the public good is exemplified by its more than 30 centers, institutes, and initiatives, including its Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC), a 200,000-square-foot facility in upper Manhattan designed to promote collaboration among scientists in global research and innovation.

The Graduate Center (GC) benefits from highly ambitious and diverse students and alumni who in turn teach hundreds of thousands of undergraduates every year. Through its public programs, the Graduate Center enhances New York City’s intellectual and cultural life.

The Ph.D. Program in English at the Graduate Center seeks an advanced Associate or full Professor in African American Studies or Black Studies, whose research and work cover any period of literary and cultural study. Areas of interest include African diaspora and Caribbean studies, the Black Radical Tradition, Black Feminisms, Black Queer Studies, gender and sexuality, and intersectional analysis of colonial histories and imperial formations. This is a tenured position that reports to the Executive Officer of the Ph.D. Program in English.

The Ph.D. Program in English is a major center for intellectual exchange and graduate training in the heart of New York City. As with other Ph.D. programs housed in the Graduate Center, the English department features a small cohort of “central-line” faculty who teach full time in the program and a much larger group of “consortial” faculty who teach and advise students at the Graduate Center in addition to their primary appointments at other colleges within the CUNY system. This arrangement provides our students with access to unparalleled breadth and depth in field coverage and approaches to scholarship, and enables the department to select the most accomplished researchers from the literary and cultural scholars who teach at eleven senior colleges and seven community colleges within CUNY. This appointment will be at the Graduate Center.

Recent hires at the Graduate Center in Anthropology, French, History, Philosophy, and Urban Education underscore an institutional commitment to the study of black life and thought on a global scale. The new appointment will be building on this commitment while strengthening both disciplinary and interdisciplinary offerings respectively in English and throughout the Graduate Center. The Associate or Full Professor will regularly teach, train, and mentor graduate students while conducting research and sharing their knowledge.

The position is expected to begin in Fall 2020.

Qualifications:
For Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor:

University of California, Santa Cruz (US:Ca) - Assistant Professor of Global Health - Social Justice[edit | edit source]

The Division of Social Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a Global and Community Health scholar with expertise in the social justice questions raised by societal and environmental influences on health. The position is open to any field in the Social Sciences at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level.

The selected candidate will be invited to join one of the following departments: Anthropology, Community Studies, Economics, Education, Environmental Studies, Latin American & Latino Studies, Politics, Psychology, Sociology, and also contribute to new program development and teaching in Global Community Health (GCH).

The selected candidate will be an outstanding researcher on global and community health with a focus on social justice issues such as socio-economic inequalities, structural violence, war, disability, trauma, and migration. Applicants might also have expertise in global health security, health rights, law and governance, development, disease surveillance, the politics of health policy reform, biometrics, mental health, or health activism. Strong candidates will possess collaborative and organizational skills based on experiences working with diverse communities through collaborative partnerships (e.g., with non-profits, NGOs, foundations, community-based organizations, schools and/or local governments). We are especially interested in a scholar who takes a broad historical and geographical approach to specific, grounded health problems; who works to understand seemingly “local” issues within global economic, environmental and political processes. Our interests align with the emerging framework of “critical global health” that calls for research attentive to power dynamics and inequality, and in which scholars are accountable to the communities they study.

Applicants should have expertise in global health research, demonstrate a strong commitment to mentoring GCH majors/minors and other undergraduates, to guiding students on appropriate GCH applications, and to developing GCH’s community partnerships. We are conducting another separate search focused on health justice and quantitative research at the same time with a similar timeline for application and assessment. https://recruit.ucsc.edu/JPF00787 In both searches consideration of potential contributions to the interdisciplinary GCH programming and to diversity, equity, and inclusion will be of paramount importance.

The selected candidate will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service and must be able to work with students, faculty and staff from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds. The selected candidate will hold a 100 percent teaching and research appointment in a department in the Division of Social Sciences and will be expected to teach courses in support of GCH’s goals and contribute to graduate education and the mentoring of graduate students. The normal teaching load in the division is four courses over three quarters. The faculty members in the division conduct high quality, cutting edge, interdisciplinary research, and perform university, public, and professional service. The division confers the most undergraduate degrees on campus, and each department has a Ph.D. program.

UC Santa Cruz values diversity, equity, and inclusion and is committed to hiring faculty who share these values. UC Santa Cruz is a Hispanic-Serving Institution with a high proportion of first-in-family students. To be considered, candidates must demonstrate an understanding of the barriers facing traditionally underrepresented groups and must discuss their past and/or future contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion through research, teaching, and service.

Document requirements

  • Cover Letter - Letter of application discussing research agendas, teaching interests, service experience, and relevant experience with forming collaborative partnerships with organizations
  • Statement of Contributions to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion - Statement addressing your understanding of the barriers facing traditionally underrepresented groups and your past and/or future contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion through research, teaching, and service. (required) Candidates are urged to review guidelines on statements before preparing their application: https://apo.ucsc.edu/diversity.html

Initial screening of candidates will be based on statements of contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion

I'm a bit confused. It looks like there were requests for interviews sent out on Oct 24, and rejections sent out on Oct 24. Did anyone else receive neither a rejection nor an interview request? it would seem weird to not be rejected when others were, but also to not be asked for an interview. Or maybe it only seems weird if you're irrationally hopeful?


I also have not heard back either way. (11/12)


Nor have I (11/12)

The hire will join three other Asian Americanists at the college and will have a hand in hiring a junior tenure-track Asian Americanist the following year. We are especially interested in candidates from historically under-represented groups, candidates whose scholarship and teaching enrich the diversity and intellectual vibrancy of our academic communities, and candidates who have experience working effectively with diverse student populations.

Please send the following application materials to the chair of the search committee, Prof. Dorothy Wang via Interfolio ( http://apply.interfolio.com/66535): a letter of application that includes a summary of current and future scholarship, teaching interests and experience, and experience working effectively with students who are widely diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, and religion; a curriculum vitae; and names of three references.

The University of Texas at San Antonio, Assistant or Associate Professor, Latin American Eco-criticism[edit | edit source]

The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has embarked on a focused cluster hiring plan to recruit top-tier researchers in interdisciplinary areas of knowledge that will advance the study of Social and Environmental Challenges in Latin America.  Home to some of the largest bioreserves in the world and some of world’s most important biodiversity hotspots, Latin America’s environments are undergoing rapid transformation due to climate change, environmental degradation, and politico-socio-economic transformations across the region.  These forces are coupled in complex ways, and understanding the coupled dynamics of society, climate, and environment in Latin America presents a grand challenge that is fertile ground for transdisciplinary research.

To address this challenge, UTSA is recruiting a cohort of researchers from different disciplines whose research centers on environmental degradation, climate change, and the associated socioeconomic and political challenges and transformations in Latin America and the US-Mexico borderlands. The goal is to foster collaborative and transdisciplinary research to understand and confront the emerging social and environmental challenges facing the region.  This targeted cluster hire will build on and leverage our established research portfolio, propelling our ability to tackle and solve previously unsolvable problems. Hires are expected to build their own unique programs of research, as well as to collaborate with other hires in this cluster and with colleagues in their home department, college, and other colleges.

As part of this cluster, we seek to hire a tenured or tenure-track scholar (Assistant or Associate Professor) in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and/or the Department of Art and Art History. We seek a scholar who applies eco-criticism approaches to the literature, visual arts, and/or the media to address topics such as colonialism and human rights in colonial or contemporary Latin America and/or the Caribbean. The ideal candidate will also create transdisciplinary collaborative synergies among faculty hired as part of this cluster and existing faculty in the Departments of Art and Art History, Modern Languages and Literatures, English, and History, among others.  We would particularly welcome a scholar who complements current faculty in terms of theoretical perspectives, methods, media of study, and time and region of focus.

Required Qualifications: Ph.D. in Art History, Spanish, Latin American Studies, or related field in hand at time of application; theoretically motivated research; an established record of teaching, research, and service appropriate to rank; demonstrated interest and experience in collaborative teaming and/or transdisciplinary research; desire and ability to contribute to graduate and undergraduate programs and to educate and mentor students from a culturally diverse urban population.

For consideration as Associate Professor, candidates must have a strong record of publication, evidence of effective teaching, and substantial experience in department, university, and professional service.  Tenure is contingent on Board of Regents approval.

Preferred Qualifications: Native or near-native fluency in Spanish and/or Portuguese; potential for securing external funding; experience in cross-disciplinary areas of inquiry that intersect art history, literature studies, media studies, cultural studies, linguistics, translation studies, and/or film studies. Preferred candidates will be able to successfully teach and mentor diverse, underserved students, including first-generation students, students of color and non-traditional students, and have the ability to contribute to the university’s commitment to inclusive excellence as a Hispanic Serving Institution.

Responsibilities include: teaching introductory, upper division, and graduate courses; research and service in a program that offers B.A. and M.A. degrees; maintaining an active research agenda; leadership in developing new lines of research and teaching; contributing to the university and community through service and outreach.

Applicants must submit:

a letter of application describing research, teaching, and service accomplishments and goals that includes a discussion of the role that diversity and inclusion play in an academic environment; please indicate the rank for which you wish to be considered 

  • a CV
  • up to three representative publications, which could include dissertation chapters
  • teaching evaluations if available
  • names, addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers of three references. 

Materials must be submitted on-line https://jobs.utsa.edu/postings/14346.  Please reference posting TT20190062P.

University of Toronto, Scarborough (CAN:Ont) - Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, Creative Writing, Indigenous Literatures, and Oral Traditions[edit | edit source]

The Department of English at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) invites applications for a full-time teaching stream appointment in Creative Writing, with expertise also in Indigenous Literatures and Oral Traditions. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream, and will commence July 1, 2020. 

We are seeking candidates who have a strong record of what Lee Maracle calls in Conversations with Canadians, “word art.” This might take the form of written or visual texts such as publication/production in fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, playwriting, screenwriting, television, comics/graphic novels. It might also manifest in an outstanding record of storytelling, oral practice, or related creative and communal contributions. We are seeking candidates whose work reflects an expertise in Indigenous literatures as well as the significance of creative practice to Indigenous communities, cultures, and ways of knowing. This position recognizes the capaciousness, flexibility, and limitations of “creative writing” and “literature” as academic categories. 

This position is part of the University of Toronto’s response to the calls to action in Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) report. Preference will be given to candidates who self-identify as Indigenous.  Recognizing that there are a variety of terms that potential candidates may use to self-identify, the University uses the term “Indigenous” in this search, which forms part of the U of T Response to Canada’s Truth and Reconciliatin Commission to encompass the people of Turtle Island, including those who identify as First Nations, Métis, Inuk (Inuit), Alaska’s Native, Native American, and Native Hawaiian people.  In the upcoming year, UTSC also is planning to search for a hire in Political Science with an Indigenous-focused specialization. As well, we have created two postdoctoral fellowships for Indigenous scholars as a part of our commitment to inclusive excellence and to help ensure a supportive cohort for new Indigenous colleagues.

Candidates must either 

• Have a traditional academic background, with a PhD or MFA/MA in Creative Writing or a PhD in Literature, Indigenous Studies, or a related field by the time of appointment or shortly thereafter, as well as an excellent record of “word art.” 

or

• Have a significant professional and artistic record as demonstrated by creative impact within communities on and/or beyond Turtle Island; artistic mentorship or leadership; recognition as a knowledge-keeper; published works; major awards or accolades; invited presentations/performances/tours/workshops; artistic residencies; or similar experiences.

In all cases, candidates must be able to show evidence of a commitment to excellence and innovation in teaching literature and creative writing at the undergraduate level, and provide clear evidence of this as part of the application. This commitment should be demonstrated through a teaching dossier submitted as part of the application. For a complete list of applicable materials that may be included in the teaching dossier please refer to the application package paragraph below. 

Candidates must also have a strong record of ethical engagement and collaboration with Indigenous communities and organizations and must provide strong endorsements by referees of high standing, including a letter of support commenting on Indigenous community engagement. Candidates must be able to show experience and engagement with at least one Indigenous community on Turtle Island, including relationship building, longstanding relationships, and possible work with community leaders and Elders. Finally, candidates must be able to show long-term experience and engagement with Indigenous organizations on Turtle Island, and evidence of understanding the importance of consensus-building relationships. UTSC and the Department of English recognize their own crucial role in consensus-building relationships as well. (Please note that Canada’s TRC response focuses on the part of Turtle Island currently known as Canada.)

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. 

This position will be held in the Department of English at the University of Toronto Scarborough. Located on the traditional territories of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit in the east end of Toronto and the beautiful Highland Creek Valley, UTSC English is a close-knit department that is home to a thriving creative writing program and community of word artists. The successful applicant will bring their talents and vision to bear on our already flourishing Minor in Creative Writing (https://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/engdept/minor-creative-writing) and to a proposed Major that is currently in development. The Department also offers Specialist, Major, and Minor programs in English literature, as well as a Minor in Literature and Film Studies, and has existing strengths in historical literary studies, postcolonial studies, form and genre, and intersections among literature, culture, and the other arts. 

In addition to teaching in our Creative Writing program, the successful candidate will be responsible for teaching our existing third-year course on Indigenous Literatures, and will have the opportunity to design further courses related to their area of expertise. We are open to the possibility of recognizing community-based teaching as part of the successful candidate’s workload, if applicable. 

The successful applicant will also contribute to and expand on our multi-faceted Creative Writing programming, which includes an annual Writer-in-Residence initiative, the student-run journal Scarborough Fair, the student-run Creative Writing contest, and the Creative Writing group’s meetings and field trips.

Such work can focus on, but is not limited to, watersheds, land and governance claims, communities, language revitalization, trans-border organizing, climate change, and eco-cultural restoration. The Center values scholarly and pedagogical approaches, creative projects, and professional activities that examine Indigenous political refusal of borders and the impact of dispossessive frameworks of settler governance.

The position begins September 16, 2020. Depending on qualifications, the successful candidate will be hired at either the rank of Assistant Professor or the rank Associate Professor. Please note that hiring at the rank of Associate Professor does not come with tenure. Both persons chosen will have an ongoing and formal joint appointment with WWU’s Center for Canadian-American Studies and Salish Sea Institute as well as in the academic department of their area of specialization. WWU departments are housed in the following colleges and applicants from any discipline related to these colleges are invited to apply: College of Business and Economics, College of Fine and Performing Arts, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, College of Science and Engineering, Fairhaven College of Interdisciplinary Studies, Huxley College of the Environment, and Woodring College of Education.

This position requires a strong commitment to teaching; the conventional teaching load for a new faculty member is six courses per year and the credit load varies by academic unit/department. If a candidate is hired at the Assistant Professor rank, teaching responsibilities will include core courses in Canadian-American Studies and/or Salish Sea Studies as well as courses in the successful candidates’ area of specialization/designated department at both the lower- and upper-division level. If a candidate is hired at the Associate Professor rank, teaching responsibilities may also include courses at the graduate level, where/if appropriate.

Each rank comes with different expectations in terms of advising, research, community engagement, and service. To be considered for the rank of Assistant Professor, candidates must already have an established agenda of interdisciplinary research in Comparative Indigenous Studies. This rank comes with minimal academic unit/department service expectations. In addition, the successful candidate(s) at this rank will have reasonable research and community engagement expectations in balance with their teaching/credit load and as part of the scholar’s tenure and promotion commitments.

For the successful candidate, the terms of expectations regarding teaching, advising, research, community engagement, and service will be agreed upon during contract signing in discussion with both the Center for Canadian-Studies and the designated academic department/unit(s).•With the addition of this position, the Center aims to assist in the creation of a supportive environment for interdisciplinary collaboration and community building that connects faculty, staff, and Western’s Tribal Liaison and local Indigenous communities. We aim to set up responsibilities for this position in ways that are sustainable and mutually supportive for the successful candidates and their university department and affiliated programs.

Stetson’s College of Arts and Sciences (http://www.stetson.edu/portal/artsci/) is the largest and most diverse of the University’s colleges and schools; it includes the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, education, and creative arts.  With nineteen academic departments and eight interdisciplinary programs, the College is the liberal arts core of the University.  A great strength of the College is its faculty of approximately 140 full-time teacher-scholars.  The College offers 31 undergraduate majors and 34 undergraduate minors; six graduate degrees are offered in Education, Counselor Education, and Creative Writing.  Every undergraduate major requires a senior research project, giving students the opportunity to design and carry out independent research under faculty mentorship.  Our academic programs are shaped by the values of social justice and civic responsibility.  All of our courses and programs of study promote engaged learning, whereby students create connections between the classroom or lab and the local, regional, and global community.  The academic programs of the College of Arts and Sciences prepare students to live significant lives, to interact with and positively affect the world around them.

The University: 

Founded in 1883, Stetson University (http://www.stetson.edu) is a private, selective university comprised of a rich array of liberal arts and professional academic programs. Collectively, Stetson’s faculty works with nearly 4,000 students in undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. The University’s historic main campus, located in DeLand, enrolls more than 3,000 students in undergraduate programs in the College of Arts & Sciences, the School of Business Administration, and the School of Music. Stetson University College of Law, Florida’s first law school, moved from the main campus to Gulfport in 1954, and, with the addition of the Tampa Law Center, serves approximately 1,000 students working full-time or part-time toward J.D. or LL.M. degrees. Graduate programs offered at the main campus and at Stetson University Center in Celebration include Business, Accounting, Educational Leadership, Counseling, and Creative Writing.  Florida’s oldest private institution of higher learning, Stetson has regularly been ranked among the best regional universities in the Southeast and was the first private college in Florida to be granted a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.

Stetson University provides an inspiring education that engages students with rigorous academic and creative study grounded in liberal learning and promotes civic values of personal and social responsibility. Working closely with faculty and with one another, students cultivate abilities to explore issues deeply, think critically, reason empirically, speak persuasively, and connect ideas creatively. Firmly committed to inclusive excellence, our vibrant community of teacher-scholars nurtures the potential of individual students to lead lives of significance and prepares each to meet the challenges of shaping the future—locally, nationally, and globally.
