The Evergreen State College is seeking a regular (tenure-track), full-time faculty member to teach in its Master of Public Administration (MPA) Program starting in the 2023-24 academic year. Successful candidates will have broad knowledge of the field of public administration, which may include expertise in:
 

  • Tribal governance
  • Qualitative and quantitative research methods
  • Nonprofit administration
  • Public budgeting and finance
  • Human resource management
  • Organization theory
  • State and local government
  • Public policy analysis
  • Public economics
  • Public law

 

The MPA program has 3 concentrations: Public & Non-profit Administration, Public Policy, and Tribal Governance. The successful candidates will assist with developing contemporary curriculum across all three concentrations, will team teach the core courses in the MPA curriculum (Context of Public Administration; Doing Democratic Public Administration; Policy, Finance, and Budgeting for Public Administration; Analytical Techniques for Public Service; and Capstone), and will teach elective courses. The teaching load is one core course (6 credits) plus one elective course (4 credits) per quarter for each of the three quarters of the academic year.

We seek a candidate with broad knowledge of and professional experience in public administration. Working with the MPA faculty team, this faculty member will engage in developing contemporary curriculum for the MPA program. In addition to teaching, the successful candidate will work collaboratively with colleagues on a variety of governance assignments within the MPA program (e.g. advising, admissions, recruitment, and building community relationships) and across the college. MPA full-time regular faculty are expected to maintain an active public service and scholarly agenda.

We have hundreds of graduates of our program working in responsible positions throughout Washington State and the Pacific Northwest.

The cornerstones of an Evergreen education, graduate or undergraduate, include collaborative and interdisciplinary teaching and learning, narrative evaluations instead of grades, and an emphasis on experiential learning and engaged discussions encompassing diverse views.
