- Oglethorpe University
Oglethorpe University is a small and growing liberal arts institution. Dedication to students and quality teaching are highly valued here. Our campus is located in the urban environment of Brookhaven, Georgia, with easy access to the cultural offerings of Atlanta and its surrounding cities (e.g., about 15 minutes to the Midtown Arts District via the MARTA rail system). The university currently enrolls a diverse population of nearly 1,500 students who represent more than 30 states and 30 countries. More than half of Oglethorpe’s students identify as persons of color, and approximately 40 percent are the first in their families to attend college. Candidates from historically excluded groups, whose work furthers the institution’s diversity, equity, and inclusion goals, and who bring varied life experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
Oglethorpe is committed to fostering a campus community and intellectual environment that recruits and maintains diverse faculty and staff, promotes a culture of respect for diverse experiences and perspectives, and understands and addresses the role of inequality in shaping our individual and collective identities. We value faculty mentorship and support faculty teaching, research, and development through the Office of the Provost.
