    Department Summary
    The Division of Global Engagement (DGE) works to make the University of Oregon a more global university. In 21st century higher education, international engagement is not an optional extra: as noted in UO's Academic Plan, it is a core mission, essential to a thriving, socially salient, intellectually robust, academic community. It is part of the normal functioning of every school, college, department, and center. DGE works to support and integrate the wide range of international engagements, global-scale projects, and transnational partnerships launched and maintained in our many academic units. Units within DGE consist of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS), Global Education Oregon (GEO), Global Studies Institute (GSI), and Mills International Center.

    The Division of Global Engagement (DGE) sets the vision, strategy, and budget for the international student and scholar experience on the UO campus. DGE supports faculty, students and staff in internationally-oriented research centers, programs and initiatives, working to enhance faculty research, enrich the student experience, and promote UO's academic excellence at home and with partners around the world.

    Position Summary
    The Division of Global Engagement invites applicants for temporary, part-time, limited duration teaching positions as Instructors or Professors of Practice to design, lead, or manage for-credit and/or non-credit educational opportunities that support the goals and strategic priorities of UO's Global Engagement Mission. All positions hired from this pool will work primarily from the Eugene campus, though opportunities for some work on, or in collaboration with, other UO-affiliated entities (including global locations) are possible.

    Course types may include, but are not limited to:
  • For-credit courses designed to support UO student's as they navigate their global engagement experiences (e.g. study abroad programs, international internships, global research projects).
  • For-credit courses designed to support the ability of UO's international student community (undergraduate and/or graduate) to achieve their academic and professional goals.
  • Non-credit seminars or related instructional opportunities designed to introduce UO students to key themes and issues with global relevance.
  • Non-credit seminars or related instructional opportunities designed to provide professional development to students, faculty, and professionals from UO's partner institutions around the globe.
  • Online or remote instructional modules designed to enhance the ability of UO's student population (international and domestic) to succeed in remote and online instruction.
  • Other instructional opportunities designed to support UO's Global Engagement Mission.

    Connections to professional practice and to emerging technology and ideas in the field of international education or intercultural communication are highly desirable.

    The Division of Global Engagement is dedicated to building a culturally diverse faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment. We encourage applications from historically marginalized and currently underrepresented communities including but not limited to ethnic and racial minorities, women, LGBTQs, veterans, and the alternatively-abled. Applicants are requested to include an explanation in their narrative statement of how they will further the University's and the Division of Global Engagement's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, perhaps in terms of how previous teaching, research, or professional work has engaged diverse communities.

    Minimum Requirements
  • Advanced degree in a relevant field.
  • Two years of experience in teaching or instructional design for an institution of higher education OR in the field of international education (broadly defined).
