Anne Arundel Community College believes that faculty are the heart of the institution. We are searching for a faculty member who is energized by the community college pathways and inclusivity/equity initiatives, and views it as his/her job to support a diverse set of learners inside and outside the classroom. The Visual Arts and Transfer Studies Departments are jointly seeking an exceptional faculty member who embraces the notion of assisting students achieve their goals, and approach academic excellence as evidenced in equity as a moral imperative.
Specifically, we seek an interdisciplinary faculty member who will advance AACC's values and strategic plan in the areas of equity, diversity, and inclusion specifically as they relate to interdisciplinary curricular innovation, learning outcomes assessment, antiracist pedagogy, and student support and completion within the primary academic discipline and in the Transfer Studies A.A. degree program.

In the long term, this faculty member will teach approximately half of their required course load in Transfer Studies courses (to be developed) and approximately half in their primary academic discipline. In the short term, this faculty member can expect to teach most of their required 30 credit course load in the primary academic discipline or in student success courses while developing new interdisciplinary Transfer Studies courses.
