  • Part-Time
  • Remote-United States


Union Institute & University, a national university for adult students offering programs of study leading to bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees is seeking to fill a half-time faculty position in Educational Studies for its interdisciplinary doctoral program. The primary responsibility of this position will be to teach in the Educational Studies concentration. This position requires a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction, Instructional Design for Online Learning, Leadership for Higher Education, Leadership in Educational Administration or another education-related focus, evidence of an active and productive research agenda, and successful college teaching experience. We are especially interested in candidates who have a specialization in Multicultural Education and Critical Pedagogy, teaching and research focus on Latinx students and students of color, and/or commitment to partnering with Latinx, Native and Indigenous, Black, Asian and Pacific Islander communities.

Union Institute & University’s doctoral program in interdisciplinary studies is designed for working/professional adults and is offered in a low-residency format that combines face-to-face residencies with a variety of approaches (web-based learning tools, interactive video seminar sessions, telephone conferences) to distance instruction. The program emphasizes interdisciplinary study, with a strong attentiveness to social justice, creativity, and engaging difference. The low-residency, distance format of the program does not require Cincinnati residence. Faculty are expected to attend a week-long residency each term in Cincinnati. We encourage applications from historically under-represented groups as well as individuals who have experience with diverse student populations.

Preference will be given to candidates with prior graduate teaching experience who are able to chair doctoral dissertation committees and whose research/teaching interests include one or more of the following areas: social justice in education, the philosophical and historical foundations of education, theories of teaching and learning, the dynamics of educational systems, education law and policy, diversity and inclusion, and culturally relevant pedagogy.
