Saint Mary’s College, the nation’s premier Catholic women’s college, was founded by the Sisters of the Holy Cross in 1844 and is located in Notre Dame, Indiana. Its mission is to educate women in the liberal arts tradition, focusing on intellectual vigor, religious sensibility, aesthetic appreciation, and social responsibility. Saint Mary’s College is an Equal Opportunity Employer. In keeping with the College’s mission, Saint Mary’s is committed to increasing its racial and ethnic diversity at all levels – students, faculty, and staff – and seeks applications from candidates who share this commitment.
The History Department seeks candidates who share the College’s commitment to social justice, who are eager to build an inclusive, diverse intellectual community, and who will collaborate effectively across the College as teachers and scholars.
