The School of Education is committed to fostering an equitable,
diverse, inclusive, and socially just community. We are seeking
applications from individuals who share our same commitment. The
successful candidate for this position will teach undergraduate
students foundational education theory, pedagogy, and pluralism.
Dedication to building educational foundations on researched best
practice is integral to the success of the School of Education and
makes UWSP a nationally recognized program for both recruitment and
retention. Consequently, because comprehension and teaching
practice that embraces equitable pluralism allows all groups to
retain elements of their cultural backgrounds and belief systems
within a more dominant culture. This philosophy promotes an
attitude of acceptance and respect for one another’s beliefs and
opinions. To practice pluralism, educators need to recognize the
value of classroom diversity. The foundation of a truly rich
learning environment lies within the principles of pluralism.
Before students can develop innovative thinking and engage in
critical thinking, they will need to respect that the world is made
up of various points of view. Without this critical approach, we
cannot truly expand our understanding of the world. Lastly, the
ability to recognize the differing beliefs of others and develop a
healthy discourse around those differences is pivotal for promoting
academic growth and analytical thinking. Other responsibilities
will involve department service activities, advising, mentoring and
professional development. This position may include student teacher
