The University of Minnesota, Morris seeks an individual committed to excellence in undergraduate education, to fill a full-time, one-year and possibly renewable position in mathematics beginning August 14, 2017. The responsibilities will include teaching a variety of undergraduate mathematics courses.
A member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges, (COPLAC), Morris is an undergraduate-focused residential liberal arts community that provides a rigorous academic experience preparing its students to be global citizens who value and pursue intellectual growth, civic engagement, intercultural competence, and environmental stewardship. The student body of approximately 1800 students is supported by 120 faculty members with a student/faculty ratio of 14/1. The Morris campus is the most ethnically diverse in the University of Minnesota system with 27 percent students of color (of which 18 percent are American Indian students) and 11 percent international students.
Morris culture is characterized by an unwavering commitment to the liberal arts and undergraduate education, but also by the particular traditions it has developed in pursuing that mission. The community believes in the values of shared governance (embodied in its official policy-making body, an inclusive Campus Assembly), and it recognizes the heritage of its campus (which originally began as an American Indian boarding school) with a vigorous commitment to diversity. With a vibrant sense of community in and out of the classroom, Morris aims to integrate curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular aspects of the student experience, and it reaches outward to the broader local community with collaborative enterprises and service-learning initiatives. A distinct campus within the larger University of Minnesota system, Morris combines the benefits of an intimate, student-centered community with many of the resources and opportunities of one of the nation's largest universities.
The college values diversity in its students, faculty, and staff. The college is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to the diversity of our community through their teaching, research, and /or service because we believe that diversity enriches the classroom and research experience at the University.
