As the largest university-based local government training, advisory, and research organization in the United States, the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Government offers up to 200 courses, webinars, and specialized conferences for more than 12,000 public officials each year. For nearly 90 years, the School of Government’s mission has been to improve the lives of North Carolinians through nonpartisan, engaged scholarship that helps public officials understand and improve state and local government.

Position: The School of Government seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) at the assistant or associate professor level. The successful candidate must be well-versed in diversity, equity, and inclusion concepts as they apply to public organizations. The School of Government anticipates that this faculty member will advance both the theory and practice of DEI.

This faculty member will work with state and local government officials in North Carolina to research, publish, and teach on social equity, diversity, and inclusion. Examples of this engaged work include leading training sessions for local government employees, advising local governments to strengthen their DEI efforts, and conducting DEI research and publishing for state and local officials.

The faculty member will also teach in the School’s highly ranked MPA program and contribute scholarship to the academic discipline of public management. The selected candidate is expected to teach one course annually on diversity, equity, and inclusion for the MPA (either on-campus or online). For more information on the MPA program see: https://mpa.unc.edu/

Work is centered in Chapel Hill but requires occasional travel and consultation around the state. Faculty appointments are year-round (rather than for the nine-month academic year).

The School of Government recognizes the importance of an educational and work environment in which all individuals are respected and valued. To that end, we are strongly committed to hiring and retaining a diverse workforce. For more information about the School’s commitment to diversity, please visit our Diversity and Inclusion page: https://www.sog.unc.edu/resources/microsites/diversity-and-inclusion.
Applicant review will begin on February 15, 2020
