We seek candidates who have expertise in (1) legal issues as they relate to children, youth, and families, e.g., family court, juvenile justice, children's rights, mandatory reporting; and/or (2) disproportionality in social service systems, especially focusing on child-serving systems of care with which vulnerable children and families may intersect. Initial appointment is for two-years.


    The department offers minors in Child Advocacy and Policy and in Social Work, a BA and MA in Child Advocacy and Policy, and an MSW with a concentration in children, youth, and families. The responsibilities of this 10-month position include teaching eight (8) courses a year and being an active member of the department. Principal assignment will be in the department's Child Advocacy and Policy programs, but with potential to teach in the Social Work programs, as well. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated excellence in teaching.


    Disciplinary background is open, but candidates are expected to hold an advanced degree, preferably a J.D. or doctorate in law/legal degree. Some college-level teaching experience required. Prior supervision of graduate and/or undergraduate students in applied settings preferred. Demonstrated commitment to social, economic, and racial justice.
