The clinical mental health counseling program is seeking to fill the following positions: two assistant/associate clinical professor positions with opportunities for program leadership. The counseling program in the College of Education has three program tracks: (1) on-ground CMHC, (2) online CMHC, and (3) school counseling.

The program holds the distinction of being the first CACREP-accredited graduate program in the Seattle area, is a leader in preparing future change agents in counseling and is CACREP-accredited through 2026. These positions require faculty to teach on-campus at Seattle University.

Candidates must demonstrate commitment to the University's and College of Education’s mission, vision, and values. The College emphasizes engagement in teaching, research, and service that contributes to building and sustaining equitable, diverse, and inclusive communities. In concert with our Jesuit mission and commitment to diversity and inclusion, candidates must demonstrate an understanding of components of a Jesuit education and its alignment with the counseling program’s social justice mission.

Minimum Requirements: A doctorate in Counselor Education from a CACREP-accredited program. Demonstrated commitment to social justice. Actively engaged in the counseling profession.
