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.
