Loyola University Chicago’s ( LUC ; www.luc.edu ) School of Environmental Sustainability ( SES ) ( www.luc.edu/sustainability ) and Quinlan School of Business ( www.luc.edu/quinlan ) invite applications for a full-time, non-tenure-track position at the rank of Lecturer, beginning fall 2022. LUC seeks to diversify its faculty and is particularly encouraging BIPOC, women, and people with disabilities to apply. SES and Quinlan are partnering in cross-school curricular development and this position will serve as a keystone in the schools’ growing sustainable business curriculum, which currently includes a five-year dual bachelor’s/master’s degree, a minor in Sustainable Business Management, and a Concentration in the Master of Science in Environmental Science and Sustainability Professional Track. Additionally, the two schools launched a Sustainable Business Challenge in fall 2021, and are currently developing a Sustainable MBA program. The current search seeks a candidate who specializes in sustainable business management or other sustainable business disciplines, who will be appointed jointly to the School of Environmental Sustainability (75%) and the Quinlan School of Business (25%).

Loyola University Chicago is committed to environmental sustainability, having transformed its campuses to meet energy, water, and waste efficiencies that have consistently ranked the University in the top 5% of green campuses nationally. The new School of Environmental Sustainability ( SES ) is growing quickly and currently serves 380 undergraduate and 70 graduate students. It is housed within a state-of- the-art geo-thermally heated/cooled building complex containing a 3,100 sq. ft. greenhouse, aquaponics facilities, a biodiesel production facility, teaching and research labs, environmental analytical lab, ecotoxicology lab, GIS Lab, and a “green” dormitory. The university prioritizes sustainability with 13 energy efficient LEED certified buildings, permeable pavement, green roof installations, and student-run urban gardens supplying the community’s Glenwood Sunday Farmer’s Market. The Loyola University Retreat & Ecology Campus ( LUREC ) has a wetland restoration project in a 20-acre wetland, a five-acre organic farm, and is a venue for three-week summer field courses and for faculty and student research in sustainable agriculture, ecology, and wetland restoration. The SES faculty is organized within five affinity groups that reflect its strengths in research, teaching, and community engagement: Biodiversity, Environment and Society, Environmental Health and Toxicology, Sustainable Food Systems, and Climate and Energy. For more information about SES, please see our website ( https://www.luc.edu/sustainability/ ). Qualifications
Candidates for the position must clearly demonstrate their potential for excellence in teaching and devotion to student success, a willingness to work collaboratively with faculty in other disciplines, and the ability to serve students from diverse backgrounds.
