Position Summary:


The successful applicants for this counselor educator positions will join the dedicated core faculty of the Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program in the College of Education and Counseling at Saint Martin’s University.


The MAC Program emphasizes the “Person of the Counselor,” academic rigor, clinical excellence, the skills and dispositions essential to the field of professional counseling, and adherence to the ethical standards of the American Counseling Association, the Benedictine principles of Saint Martin’s University, and the MAC Position statement, our commitment to diversity and service. We are a program that highly values collaboration and social and cultural diversity, and we serve a diverse student population. The MAC program at Saint Martin’s is a uniquely practical and soulful counselor education program, committed to highly relational delivery of curriculum in real time, both in person and online.


Working In consultation with the MAC Director-Chair and other members of the MAC faculty team, the position also includes participation in program and university service, student advising, assessment and accreditation, professional development, and other related activities.


Our core faculty are expected to teach 10 classes across three semesters in our 60-credit year-round program: four in Fall Semester (16 weeks), four in Spring Semester (16 weeks) and two in Summer Semester (8 weeks). Our new hires are scheduled to begin onboarding in April, and teaching in May of 2022.


Special Instructions to Applicants:


The MAC Program at Saint Martin’s University is open to a range of scholarly interests and lived experiences, in addition to our core requirements, but for this position we are especially interested in licensed graduates of CACREP Accredited programs who as both scholars and counselors carry additional dedication to one or more of the following: issues of social justice and/or advocacy; issues surrounding the building of sustainable and meaningful relationships within the field of counseling and with community members and stakeholders; and issues of diversity, equity, and/or inclusion in counseling and education. Counseling educators with these work experiences and research interests are highly encouraged to apply.





Established in 1895, Saint Martin’s University is the educational mission of Saint Martin’s Abbey, a Catholic Benedictine monastery, whose members pray, work, and live together on the University campus. The physical beauty of Saint Martin’s 300-acre campus reflects the rich intellectual and spiritual nature of its presence in the Pacific Northwest.



Essential features of University life are animated by its Benedictine identity and its participation in the centuries-old traditions of Catholic intellectual thought and the search for truth.



Thus, the University honors students and guides them towards achieving academic excellence. Superior teaching is the expected norm. Rooted in the long tradition of the liberal arts, the University curriculum cultivates creativity and the ability to communicate and pursue ideas; critical thinking and independent inquiry; academic proficiency; the formation of sound ethical judgments; and service to humanity.



Reflecting the Benedictine virtue of hospitality, the University welcomes and, indeed, seeks students and employees not only from the Pacific Northwest, but also from other parts of the nation and the world at its main and extension campuses. Saint Martin’s treasures persons of all ages, religions, and nationalities as it encourages cognizance of diverse viewpoints and an appreciation of all cultures.



Ranked by Niche as the second (#2) most diverse private college in Washington State in 2020. Saint Martin’s is extremely proud of our student diversity.  Our university treasures persons of all abilities, ages, ethnicities, genders, nationalities, orientations, races, and religions.  In particular, we know that students educated in an ethnically diverse setting perform better academically and reap greater professional success than their peers from more homogeneous learning environments. We proudly celebrate that our student population is 51% undergraduate and 32% graduate students of color.  We are committed to pursuing an employee community that reflects a similar, if not the same percentage.  



Therefore, we intentionally encourage and request that members of historically underrepresented groups apply to join this community.  All of us, from all backgrounds, are making a commitment to do and be better for our students, faculty, and staff.



At the heart of the Saint Martin’s Master of Arts in Counseling is our MAC Position Statement, our commitment to Diversity and Service:


In resonance with the values of the American Counseling Association, the National Board for Certified Counselors, accrediting organizations for counseling programs, and our Catholic framework, we recognize the dominance of white/euro-centric norms and teach cultural humility by rejecting anti-immigrant rhetoric and action. We affirm the self-determination of indigenous and native communities by hearing their stories and supporting decolonization. We work to deconstruct the walls of sexism and transphobia by integrating feminist and trans-valuing theories into our practice. We actively counter ageism, ableism, classism, racism and heterosexism in our communities by admitting their pervasiveness and implementing corrective actions. In the spirit of Benedictine sincere hospitality, we extend welcome to members of all faiths and to those who do not identify as having a religious membership.
