  1. TENURE-TRACK FACULTY OPENING, Open Rank

Calvin University invites applications and nominations for a full-time regular faculty member to join the Speech Pathology and Audiology Department (SPAUD) beginning in January or August 2024 (negotiable). Responsibilities include undergraduate and graduate teaching; scholarly activity; department- and University-level service; academic advising; and mentoring student research.


Faculty Requirements

The university seeks applicants with vibrant Christian faith who are dedicated to integration of that faith with their field of study.

Ideal candidates will hold a PhD or EdD in speech-language pathology or a related field. Strong ABD candidates nearing the completion of their degree are encouraged to apply.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and master’s levels as well as an active stream of relevant research and publication. Preference will be given to candidates with experience teaching using a variety of methods and instructional technology.

The university will prioritize candidates with broad interdisciplinary interests, demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, ability to integrate questions of meaning, significance, and ethics into all course content, and deep commitment to engaging students beyond the classroom.

Faculty Responsibilities

Faculty members typically teach 24 semester hours per academic year. Faculty are expected to grow in Reformed Christian commitment, to pursue an active scholarly agenda, to teach effectively, and to serve the university, department, students, and the wider community. Candidates will be asked to affirm their commitment to the educational mission of Calvin University as a Christian liberal arts university in the Reformed tradition, affiliated with the Christian Reformed Church.  (See Educating for Shalom and Faculty Expectations.) Calvin University provides numerous faculty development opportunities to foster growth in these commitments.

The University hosts a number of Centers and Institutes and provides other funding opportunities to support faculty teaching and research, including sabbaticals, grants, course releases, summer research stipends, travel funds, and student research opportunities.

    Calvin University invites applications for a full-time lecturer position in the area of speech-language pathology, beginning in January or August 2024 (negotiable). The appointment is a non-tenure-track position meant to be long-term.

    Lecturer Requirements

    Applicants must have an earned doctorate in Speech-Language Pathology or a related area (PhD or EdD). ASHA Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology is required. Eligibility for a Michigan State license to practice preferred.

    Candidates are expected to demonstrate excellence in teaching a range of courses at both the undergraduate and master’s levels, with a commitment to teaching excellence and innovation, active-learning, and engagement of students with diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Preference will be given to candidates with experience teaching using a variety of methods and instructional technology. Applicants are required to have excellent interpersonal and English communication skills—in the classroom, with colleagues, in written work, and in listening.

    The university will prioritize candidates with broad interdisciplinary interests, demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, ability to integrate questions of meaning, significance, and ethics into all course content, and deep commitment to engaging students beyond the classroom.

    Lecturer Responsibilities

    The primary responsibility of this position will be teaching undergraduate and graduate courses. The teaching load will be 32 credit hours in 2023-2024. There are no expectations of pursuing scholarship or serving on university-wide committees, but active participation in the department’s faculty activities such as faculty meetings and committees is expected.
