Aurora University seeks talented faculty who are passionate about teaching and learning. As a private institution, Aurora University expects faculty to be involved in the lives of students through mentoring, student support, enrollment initiatives, and other activities related to the college experience. To facilitate this highly interactive faculty/student relationship, the typical teaching load is three 4 credit-hour courses per semester. Student advising is supported by professional staff. Undergraduate faculty share in the delivery of the general education program, most often by teaching within the university's interdisciplinary core. Evidence of successful teaching, or a strong potential for successful teaching, is required for all positions. Experience teaching at a smaller, private institution is highly preferred.

Assistant Professor supports learning by participating in curricular development, program assessment, student advising, student groups, and institutional service and scholarship per the requirements of the Faculty Handbook. As a participating member of the faculty, the successful candidate will be expected to participate in the activities of the university and department, including recruiting, mentoring, and other services including campus-based activities.

Essential Job Functions:

Responsibilities include teaching 12-credit hours per semester of graduate courses, attending MSW recruitment activities and departmental meetings, and service to Aurora University and the community.

Education: Must possess an MSW from a CSWE accredited program. PhD or DSW preferred.

Experience: Must have a minimum of five years post-MSW professional social work experience; must have knowledge of CSWE Standards; and must have a minimum of two years of social work teaching experience.

Skills: Preferred experience teaching clinical theory and research-related courses in a graduate program. Emphasis on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEi), trauma-related practice, and trauma-informed classrooms is a priority.

Physical Requirements: expected that faculty will live in an area that allows for regular and convenient travel to Aurora, Illinois regularly.

All benefit-eligible faculty positions offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits including health, dental, vision, life, long term disability, a 403(b) retirement plan through TIAA, and tuition remission.
