Sociology Department Part-Time Lecturer(s) for UCI LIFTED Program, 2023-2024
The Department of Sociology at the University of California, Irvine, invites applications from those interested in teaching classes within the LIFTED BA program for incarcerated individuals during the 2023 Summer Sessions and the 2023-24 Academic Year.
About the LIFTED program
There is growing consensus around the importance of creating and sustaining effective college-in-prison reentry programs for those who are currently incarcerated. The LIFTED program - Leveraging Inspiring Futures Through Educational Degrees - seeks to fulfill this mission. The University of California, Irvine, is partnering with Southwestern College to offer BA degrees to students from the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility near San Diego. Southwestern College has been a state leader in offering college-in-prison AA degrees, and UCI LIFTED will extend opportunity to the BA level, laying the foundation for a new path to decarceration and moving us closer to the dream of enabling 'anyone from anywhere' to educate themselves into a better life. Classes must be taught in person at the Donovan Correctional Facility southeast of San Diego.
Classes may include the following:
Sociol 10A, B, and C, Probability and Statistics
Sociol 110, Research Methods
Sociol 120, Sociological Theory
Sociol 180AW, Sociology Majors Seminar
Other Upper Division Sociology Elective Courses and/or other substantive courses listed in the UCI Sociology catalogue: [https://catalogue.uci.edu/schoolofsocialsciences/departmentofsociology/#courseinventory]
Interested candidates should submit:
-Cover letter that clearly indicates which course/s and topics/specialties you are qualified to teach
-Current Curriculum Vitae
-Teaching statement, including any information relevant to the LIFTED program
-Diversity statement, addressing past and/or potential contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion
-Three letters of recommendation
-Optional materials: writing sample, peer evaluations, course syllabi, teaching awards, etc.
PhD required by time of appointment.
Successful candidates will need to pass a background check conducted by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
The review process will begin April 10, 2023, but screening will continue until the position/s are filled and/or LIFTED program needs are met, with a final closing date of December 31, 2023. Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed.
