Morningside University
Esther Mackintosh Humanities Scholar of the University

Morningside University invites applications for the Esther Mackintosh Humanities Scholar of the University. This newly established endowed professorship offers a rare opportunity for a scholar to promote and celebrate the value of humanistic inquiry on campus and in the community. Housed in the interdisciplinary Humanities department, this is a 9-month, tenured, faculty position at the rank of associate or full professor to begin in August of 2022.

Morningside University is a private, four-year liberal arts college affiliated with the United Methodist Church, located on a beautiful 68-acre campus located in a residential area in Sioux City, Iowa. The educational programming is designed to meet the needs of undergraduate, post-undergraduate, and graduate students in an increasingly fast-paced world. A small, collegial, and mission driven community, Morningside is dedicated to integration of liberal arts and professional study. Offering more than 65 academic programs, with a 13:1 student:faculty ratio, the University highly values excellence in teaching and learning. Morningside is recognized for providing undergraduate students with exceptional active learning, and for its online graduate programs, flexible post-baccalaureate programs, and an online bachelor's degree completion option. Total enrollment is approximately 2,700 students from nearly all 50 states and almost 20 countries. See for more information.

The Scholar will be part of the humanities department but will report directly to the Vice President of Academic Affairs and receive a separate budget for professional development and community engagement activities. The goal of this structure is to provide the freedom and support to be successful in the scholar's distinctive charge. This is an exciting opportunity for a humanities scholar who is passionate about the importance of the humanities to higher education and to our society. The Mackintosh Humanities Scholar will champion the interconnectedness of the humanities throughout the various disciplines of the University, demonstrating to faculty within and beyond the humanities the value and relevance of the humanities in the 21st century.
