The Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) unit of the Krieger School seeks an Adjunct Faculty to teach the online course of 470.798 - Financial Management and Analysis in Nonprofits for the graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management. This course is one of the six required courses of the certificate. As the nation's oldest and one of the most prestigious research universities, Johns Hopkins offers high-quality master's degrees and post-baccalaureate education to students located in the greater Baltimore and Washington, D.C. regions and throughout the United States and abroad.

This course surveys the basic tools for financial management and analysis through the lens of a nonprofit leader. Whether students are interested in a career in nonprofit organizations or in working with nonprofit organizations in other capacities, students will learn to be an informed consumer of financial information and an educated user of financial tools. Students will put themselves into the shoes of a nonprofit leader, understand how financial information and tools play an important role in evaluation and decision-making processes, and ask critical questions using the financial information and tools before making decisions and take actions. The course starts with an internal perspective before turning the focus externally. This course is not intended to make students financial experts. Rather, it will provide basic knowledge for students to ask the right questions, know where to get information and answers, and work effectively with financial experts in the field. Elective course for the Certificate in Nonprofit Management.

We invite applications to fill an adjunct teaching position (10-15 hrs/week), non-tenure track, semester-by-semester hire. The Certificate program is fully online. The adjunct faculty will report to the Program Director of the Certificate in Nonprofit Management. The Adjunct Faculty will have the following instructional and administrative responsibilities:

Teach 1 graduate course (unless there is a demand for more than one section) online using BlackBoard;
Personalize the graduate course through BlackBoard, including an international scope to the course;

Learn online tools such as Voicethread, Panopto and Adobe Connect;

Grade assignments and provide regular feedback to students on the online discussion threads and in the grade center;

Answer student inquiries via email within 24 - 48 hours;

Complete other administrative duties associated with teaching as assigned.
