The School of Education & Leadership at Hamline University invites seasoned administrator applications for a teaching-track Professor of Practice with expertise in K-12 administration. We seek a colleague to work with us on a variety of contemporary issues in education, including understanding and challenging the ways in which systems of privilege and oppression operate in our public schools and in teacher education programs. We are especially interested in candidates who explicitly take a critical and responsive stance toward leading schools in improving the experiences and life outcomes of traditionally underserved and marginalized youth.

Hamline University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and seeks to build an inclusive community that can engage the interests of a diverse population. We are committed to fostering, cultivating, and sustaining a culture that reflects the diversity of our country, and as such, we particularly encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups such as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, veterans, and those with disabilities.
