The Department of Women and Gender Studies (WGST) in the AddRan
College of Liberal Arts occasionally has openings for part-time,
temporary adjunct instructors. Applying for a part-time teaching
appointment in WGST would add the applicant to a pool which is
available to the departmental search committee for consideration in
case the need arises for the 2022-2023 academic year.
TCU only accepts online applications and documents.
The ideal applicant will have at least a Masters degree in Women,
Gender, and/or Sexualities Studies, Feminist Studies, or other
interdisciplinary field or traditional discipline with explicit
expertise in gender, sexuality, and feminist or queer theories and
methods. We are particularly interested in scholars of Chicana
feminism, Indigenous feminisms, Black feminism or womanism,
STEMinism, transnational feminism, other forms of intersectional
feminism, or those who work in or with queer and/or trans of color
critique. WGST anticipates the need for instructors to teach our
Introduction to Women and Gender Studies course which centers the
social construction of gender, sex, and sexuality; privilege and
oppression; intersectionality; and feminist praxis.
Women & Gender Studies programming has been part of TCU since
1994. In 2018, TCU approved both a BA and a BS in WGST, along with
our existing minor, emphasis, and Graduate Certificate. The WGST
Department is supported by dedicated faculty, staff, and
administration who clearly identify the intersection of gender,
sexuality, race, ethnicity, and class as essential to the task of
engendering a heritage of service in pursuit of the greater good
and an active appreciation for the array of human experiences. The
WGST Department is committed to building a diverse educational
environment that recognizes diversity and cultural competence as
integral components of academic excellence.
Named for TCU’s founders, Addison and Randolph Clark, the AddRan
College of Liberal Arts is home to the core academic disciplines of
the humanities and social sciences. The College includes
approximately 155 full-time faculty members, 11 departments
(Criminology and Criminal Justice, Economics, English, Geography,
History, Modern Language Studies, Philosophy, Political Science,
Religion, Sociology & Anthropology, and Spanish and Hispanic
Studies), and two units of Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (Army
and Air Force). AddRan College departments confer 15 Bachelor of
Arts and six Bachelor of Science degrees, a Bachelor of General
Studies, an online master’s degree in Criminology and Criminal
Justice, a Master of Liberal Arts degree, and master’s and Ph.D.
degrees in History, English, and Rhetoric and Composition.
University & Fort Worth Description
Founded in 1873, Texas Christian University sits on 302 acres

At TCU, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are an educational
imperative directly tied to the University mission, vision, and
strategic plan. Fulfilling TCU’s mission to develop ethical leaders
and critical thinkers in a global community depends on the
University’s ability to attract and retain students, faculty, and
staff from diverse backgrounds. A diverse and inclusive campus
leads to innovation, broadened perspective, and
understanding—values that are foundational aspects of higher
education. For the fourth consecutive year, TCU has earned the
Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award, which highlights
ongoing commitment to build a comprehensive DEI strategy that
aligns with core values and creates a campus culture where everyone
is respected and included.
ABOUT FORT WORTH
Like TCU, Fort Worth has the approachable, friendly charm of a
smaller town, but offers the amenities, cultural activities,

Texas, is the 13th largest city in the United States with an
ever-growing population nearing 1 million. Fort Worth and TCU have
grown together in a nearly 150-year relationship. You’ll find that
many Horned Frogs remain here after graduation, thanks to the
region’s thriving job market. Fort Worth is part of the Dallas-Fort
Worth metropolitan area, the fourth largest metropolitan area in
the United States, and the number 1 tourist destination in Texas.
In 2018, bizjournals.com ranked Fort Worth the 7th most affordable
city to live and work in the United States and U.S. News and World
Report named Fort Worth one of the Best Places to Live. Fort Worth,
Dallas and Arlington all rank among the top 25 most diverse cities
in the country.
Fort Worth is known for its vast array of cultural, educational and
entertainment opportunities. The city boasts three world class art
museums—the Kimbell Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
