Job Details



Earlham College is a Top 100 National Liberal Arts College located in Richmond, IN, a small city that's just a short drive away from several major metropolitan areas including Dayton, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Chicago.

Richmond and Earlham have a symbiotic relationship. Through research, studies, internships and volunteering, Earlhamites offer Richmond expertise and service as Richmond offers our students the chance to gain valuable, real-world experience. Our community assumes no religious affiliation but follows Quaker principles and practices, which include respect for persons, integrity, a commitment to peace and justice, simplicity, and consensus-based community decision-making. Earlham is committed to and proud of being a diverse and inclusive place most clearly visible in our student body: 20% of our student body are international, coming from 60+ nations in 2022, and 24% are domestic students of color. Faculty and staff also bring tremendous diversity to the College; many have lived and worked outside the United States, and they make a point of drawing on those experiences in their interactions with students. Additionally, Earlham makes it a priority to serve as a safe and welcoming place for LGBTQ+ communities and has a four-star rating on the Campus Pride Index. Our community is characterized by respect for every person and a commitment to social justice.

Earlham College

Founded in 1847, Earlham College is a nationally-ranked liberal arts college that aspires to change lives for good. Our community is shaped by the perspectives and values of the Religious Society of Friends—commonly known as Quakers—but you don’t have to be Quaker to work or study here. (In fact, most of us aren’t!) Instead, our community comes together around our shared Principles and Practices: respect for persons, integrity, peace and justice, simplicity, and community. Through our common understanding of these values and our shared governance structure, each member of the Earlham community is encouraged to participate fully, applying their personal expertise and experience to moving the College forward.

Earlham welcomes a broadly diverse student body, faculty and staff to its campus.

With a quarter of our students identifying as domestic minorities and another 20 percent coming to Earlham from homes outside the United States, our classrooms, clubs and activities benefit from the wide variety of perspectives and experiences our students bring.

Our 800-acre campus is nestled in the heart of Richmond, Indiana. Richmond and Earlham share a mutually beneficial connection, and our location allows for the best of both worlds—big city amenities aren’t far away, and outdoor activities abound.

We’re delighted that you’re interested in joining the Earlham community and look forward to learning more about you through the application process.

The health and financial security of you and your family is important to us. Earlham College is proud to offer you competitive, comprehensive benefits that enhance the lives of you and your family. These benefits are intended to protect your well-being and financial health. You have the flexibility to select the plans that best meet your needs and the opportunity to elect additional benefits that protect you and your family and balance your life outside of work.

Oh, and by the way—it’s pronounced “Ur-luhm”!
