At St. Charles Community College, we have a passion for student success. We serve a growing diverse student population, and we are committed to increasing the diversity of our faculty and staff who will help prepare our students for a global society. Qualified candidates will have demonstrated success in serving diverse student populations.

For more than 35 years, St. Charles Community College has served its community by focusing on academic excellence, student success, and workforce development. It’s why SCC was named the best “Return on Investment” among Missouri community colleges by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce in 2019. We celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion – where every faculty member, employee and student feels embraced and heard. Each year, SCC serves more than 10,000 students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution, obtain a work-ready degree or certificate, or broaden their horizons through education. 

St. Charles Community College seeks qualified candidates to join its English Department for the position of full-time English Faculty beginning in Fall 2021. We desire candidates with a commitment to diverse modes of thinking and an appreciation for the vast cultural backgrounds and experiences that students bring to the classroom. Experience teaching composition in the co-requisite model of instruction is especially desirable and will be a major part of the selected candidate(s) teaching load.

We are particularly interested in candidates with backgrounds in diverse literary traditions (particularly African American, Caribbean, Asian American, or Latinx literature) as well as those with experience teaching technical writing. Pending budgetary approval, we will be hiring up to two candidates.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and curriculum vita (which should include at least three professional references), and a brief teaching philosophy statement of no more than two single-spaced pages. Selected candidates will be asked to provide evidence of effective teaching and a statement about diversity in the classroom, but please do not submit these as part of the initial application.

Priority consideration will be given to applicants whose materials are received by April 23, 2021.

Minimum Qualifications: MA in English or Creative Writing.

Preferred Qualifications: Experience teaching co-requisite composition; background in African American, Caribbean, Asian American, or Latinx literature or background in teaching technical writing. Experience using a Learning Management System (Canvas, Blackboard, etc.).
