Anderson University recognizes three paths for faculty employment: annual appointment, professional path, and tenure track. Faculty hired for annual appointment are evaluated on mission fit, and teaching and learning. They begin employment at the rank of instructor with the opportunity to promote to senior lecturer. Faculty in the Professional Path focus on teaching and learning and are evaluated on mission fit, teaching and learning, and service; and they are able to promote through professorial ranks. After six years of exemplary service, faculty on the Professional Path become eligible for multi-year contracts. Faculty on tenure track focus initially on teaching and learning, but they are evaluated on mission fit, teaching and learning, service, and scholarship. Tenure-track faculty promote through professorial ranks and are eligible for tenure status in year six.
This full-time faculty position requires an earned terminal degree in a field of education (Ph.D. or Ed.D.) and relevant experience in one or more of the following areas: educational research, data analysis, administration and supervision, and curriculum and instruction. The preferred candidate will be expected to demonstrate potential for teaching excellence in traditional and online settings, extensive professional experience and some scholarly activity, and an interest in serving the profession. Preference will be given to applicants with college level teaching experience and/or P-12 teaching or teacher preparation experience, and sufficient scholarship to warrant tenure-track status. Current state teacher certification required.
