Description

The Education Department at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia seeks a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor in the area of Secondary Education beginning August 2023. The Department offers 14 undergraduate programs in education: a major in elementary education, a major in exceptional education, ten secondary minor programs, and two minors in music education. Faculty in the Department are deeply committed to preparing reflective, competent professionals capable of meeting the diverse needs of learners and committed to advancing equity in education settings. Students spend time in field placements beginning with their very first education course, accumulating over 130 hours of field experience (major), and 100 hours of field experience (minor) prior to their 300-hour student teaching experience. All programs are fully accredited by CAEP, and the Department is committed to the process of ongoing reflection and the use of multiple measures to inform continuous improvement. The Department is growing and has an exceptional rate of employment (100% over eight years) as well as high retention in the field after graduation.

Randolph-Macon College, founded in 1830, is a selective, primarily residential liberal arts college with an enrollment of 1500 students located in the northern suburbs of Richmond, Virginia. It is 90 miles south of Washington, DC and 15 miles north of Richmond. The College seeks employees committed to advancing inclusion and equity and to cultivating a community that welcomes all people, regardless of race, gender, disability, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, or gender expression. Of special interest are candidates who can further the College’s efforts to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion.  

Position Details

The new tenure-track faculty member will teach methods courses in secondary education commensurate with their area of training, serve as Secondary Coordinator and advisor for all students pursuing secondary licensure, and contribute to other courses in the department. The candidate will also be expected to actively participate in service to the College community, to supervise secondary student teachers, and to pursue an active research agenda that contributes to advancing the department, College, the profession, and society. Additional duties may include teaching general education courses and advising students outside of the department. 

Candidates must have a demonstrated commitment to instructional practices, policies, and programs that enhance equitable opportunities for students, particularly those from historically marginalized backgrounds. Candidates who have a record of serving and partnering with culturally diverse and minoritized communities across multiple levels of educational systems (e.g., schools, districts, higher education) and who have experience supervising secondary student teacher candidates will be considered highly competitive. 

In-person teaching, mentoring students and providing professional development for colleagues, schools, and community groups is required. The candidate will also be expected to participate in service activities and show a commitment to principles of diversity and inclusion as a member of the College community. Salary is commensurate with academic preparation and experience.
