Part-time American Sign Language Instructor

The World Language Program in the School of Humanities, Education, Justice & Social Sciences at Lasell College is seeking a part-time instructor to teach American Sign Language. We currently have an opening for 1 class session that starts Sept 9.

ASL111 is the first level of Elementary Sign Language - we anticipate that the faculty member hired will also teach ASL112 in the spring semester. This is a face-to-face course that has been scheduled Monday/Wednesday 9:30 - 10:45 and Friday 10 - 10:50.

Given Lasell's commitment to fostering an intellectually enriching and inclusive educational environment, our expectation is that the successful candidate will demonstrate competence and sensitivity in fulfilling their roles and interacting with students and employees who are broadly diverse with regard to various aspects of identity, such as race, ethnicity, ability status, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, nationality, and religion.

Lasell seeks faculty and staff who appreciate the value diversity brings to a campus community and are eager to foster an inclusive environment at the University. Employees who represent various areas of diversity of our student body are key contributors to our strategic vision.
