We seek a teacher educator/scholar with expertise - and preferably lived experience - in Indigenous communities, schools and/or histories as well as second language acquisition. Primary teaching responsibilities include courses focused on Wisconsin First Nations, supporting English language learning, and culturally sustaining pedagogies.

    About the Teacher Education Department

    Our mission is to prepare racially conscious, culturally sustaining, instructionally effective, community-engaged teacher leaders who demonstrate a lifelong commitment to social justice and advocacy. We recently restructured our teacher preparation program while conducting an EDIB curriculum development initiative. Overarching goals for candidates’ learning include: understand themselves as cultural beings with multiple, intersecting identities; critically examine structural inequities and how activism/advocacy can disrupt them; build an asset-based view of all students/families/communities which centers the funds of knowledge of historically under-represented, under-resourced groups; create inclusive, trusting learning communities; design equitable, responsive content-specific instruction; disrupt personal biases/structural inequities through our teaching and advocacy of all students, their families, and communities. 

     

    About St. Norbert College

    St. Norbert College, located on the ancestral home of the Menominee Nation, is a thriving, nationally ranked Catholic liberal arts college known for its academic excellence, global focus, and leadership and service opportunities. We acknowledge the living history

    and contributions of the Indigenous communities that inhabited this land prior to the establishment of St. Norbert College, as well as the sovereign Native American Nations who continue to contribute to the flourishing of our communities.

    Situated on an attractive, riverside campus in De Pere, Wisconsin -- a community contiguous with the city of Green Bay, St. Norbert -- St. Norbert is the only college in the world sponsored by the Norbertines, a Catholic order devoted to community, education, and serving the needs of others.

    The division of Academic Affairs provides safe, inclusive, and anti-racist educational and work experiences for our faculty, staff, and students of color, congruent with our Catholic, Norbertine, and liberal arts values. Therefore, we invite candidates who have research interests, pedagogical experience or lived experience that demonstrates a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging to join our community of teaching and learning. We are seeking to hire several new faculty members across the college as part of a cohort of scholars who are committed to meeting together, working as a group to infuse equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging (EDIB) into the curriculum. This past year we conducted a national search to hire an inaugural dean of curriculum and senior diversity officer, which highlights the importance of EDIB work in the curriculum.  

    As one of the nation’s top Catholic liberal arts colleges, St. Norbert builds on the beliefs and practices of an ancient religious order while responding to the current needs of its students and communities. Today at St. Norbert College, the spirit of Norbert of Xanten, who founded the Norbertine order of priests in the twelfth century, lives through this modern, bustling community dedicated to transforming and empowering its students. The college has seen remarkable development in the past decade, particularly the construction and renovation of more than $150 million in campus facilities and infrastructure. St. Norbert is characterized by recent strong enrollments, as evidenced over the past ten years by the largest, most diverse, and most talented first-year classes in the college’s history. 

    At St. Norbert College, a holistic approach to students characterizes the curriculum and classroom; faculty use their award-winning research to challenge and encourage students to greater curiosity, and students learn and collaborate both in and outside the classroom in an integrated experience. St. Norbert College is organized into four academic divisions – Humanities, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Visual & Performing Arts – and the Donald J. Schneider School of Business & Economics.
