DEPARTMENT: Theatre and Dance


POSITION TITLE: Lecturer Pool - Theatre and Dance


POSITION DETAILS:

The Department of Theatre and Dance at California State University, Sacramento, commit ourselves and our programs to call out systemic racism and to actively promote a truly diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment onstage, in rehearsals, in classrooms, and among each other. This commitment is rooted in providing a broad and thorough foundation of the history, theory, literature, performance, design/technical, and management practices of theatre and dance. Our imaginative and ambitious curriculum, supported by studio work and productions, challenges and nurtures our students to be interdependent, inclusive leaders who embody diverse practices in theater and dance. Our collaborative, artistic environment reflects a complex global perspective, complemented by national and international faculty and staff experience.

Duties of a part-time lecturer include instruction, class preparation, grading, and office hours. Other duties may be assigned based on departmental needs. Course assignments, including dates, time, and modality, are made by the Department Chair under the direction of the College Dean.

Part-time lecturers are instructional faculty with conditional appointments based on enrollment and budget. Hires from the pool of applicants are made when there are instructional needs to fill coursework offered by an academic department based on changing enrollment patterns, changes to tenure-track faculty assignments, and other factors that cannot be addressed with our existing faculty. Initial appointments are typically for one semester, but occasionally academic year initial appointments are made. Appointments may be renewed based on department needs, funding, and performance. Often appointments are made just prior to the start of the semester.
