Visiting Assistant Professor - Masters in Counseling
The Saint Martin’s Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) Program is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Visiting Assistant Professor (VAP) for the academic year extending from Fall 2021 through Summer 2022 (three semesters).
This is a Visiting Assistant Professor position, with the possible option to be considered for a tenure track position if approved. The successful applicant will join the dedicated faculty of the Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program in the College of Education and Counseling at Saint Martin’s University, a private Catholic, Benedictine university located in Western Washington.
The MAC Program emphasizes the “Person of the Counselor,” academic rigor, clinical excellence, the skills and dispositions essential to the field of professional counseling, and adherence to the standards of the American Counseling Association, the Benedictine principles of Saint Martin’s University, the MAC Position statement, and our commitment to diversity and service (see below). We are a program that highly values collaboration and social and cultural diversity and serves a diverse student population. Our VAP will be expected to teach 10 classes across three semesters (Fall 2021, Spring 2022, Summer 2022), and to begin in August of 2021.
Saint Martin’s University is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, and covered veterans.
Ranked by Niche as the second (#2) most diverse private college in Washington State in 2020. Saint Martin’s is extremely proud of our student diversity. Our university treasures persons of all abilities, ages, ethnicities, genders, nationalities, orientations, races, and religions. In particular, we know that students educated in an ethnically diverse setting perform better academically and reap greater professional success than their peers from more homogeneous learning environments. We proudly celebrate that our student population is 51% undergraduate and 32% graduate students of color. We are committed to pursuing an employee community that reflects a similar, if not the same percentage.
Therefore, we intentionally encourage and request that members of historically underrepresented groups apply to join this community. All of us, from all backgrounds, are making a commitment to do and be better for our students, faculty, and staff.
