To further advance our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusivity (a key component of our strategic plan), Western Colorado University is excited to announce a DEI Cluster Hire for faculty across a wide range of academic areas: Business, Communication Arts, Education, Creative Writing, and Mathematics. Consonant with the cluster hire theme, we hope to attract a diverse group of new colleagues who are committed to inclusive curricula/teaching, equity-minded student mentorship, community-engagement for social justice, collaboration on relevant interdisciplinary initiatives, and cultivating intercultural competencies requisite for meaningful citizenship in an increasingly complex, pluralistic society. To support and sustain these commitments, applicants demonstrating a record of significant engagement with issues of social, economic, racial, and/or gender justice and equity in their work will be given preference.



Full-time, 12-month Lecturer position in the Outdoor Industry M.B.A program to support our Service Track. This faculty position may work remotely (with mandatory intermittent travel) or on our campus in Gunnison, Colorado.


Full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor of Communication Arts, in the area of Strategic Communication. Teaching responsibilities include courses at all levels in Communication Arts, in particular strategic communication courses like public relations, campaign design, media effects, social media, intercultural communication, and communication theory. 


Full time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor of Education with a focus on teaching English learners (EL) and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) learners.  The successful candidate will teach four graduate-level courses per semester (with released time based on administrative and discipline responsibilities). Additionally, faculty roles include creating online coursework in EL/CLD, supervising students in clinical teaching residencies, and collaborating with education faculty members in relation to EL/CLD issues and shared governance.


Full-time, 12-month, non-tenure-track Lecturer position in screenwriting. The successful applicant will also serve as Director of the Screenwriting Concentration.  The Graduate Program in Creative Writing is a low-residency program that offers both M.A. and M.F.A degrees in Creative Writing with concentrations in Genre Fiction, Nature Writing, Poetry, and Screenwriting, as well as a M.A concentration in Publishing. With the exception of the annual summer residency, all courses and events are delivered online, using Zoom and Canvas, and most faculty work remotely.


Full-time, nine-month, non-tenure-track Lecturer position in Mathematics for the 2022-2023 academic year (with strong possibility of renewal). Teaching responsibilities are 15 credits per semester including lower-division undergraduate Mathematics with the possibility of upper-division Mathematics and undergraduate research mentoring.
