Visiting Faculty position in Community & Justice Studies@ Guilford College

Apr 11, 2018

Guilford College invites applications for a two-year visiting faculty position in Community and Justice Studies in the Justice and Policy Studies Department to begin August 2018. As the department grows, the possibility exists that the contract length could be extended. The successful candidate for the position will primarily teach courses which satisfy requirements for the Community and Justice Studies major. These courses include, but are not limited to, Community Problem Solving, Public Management and Organizational Theory, Restorative Justice, and Trust and Violence.

The Community and Justice Studies major engages students in the systematic and critical study of the development of just and humane social systems, and of a broad range of approaches used by communities to address issues impacting the lives of their members. Such approaches include community organizing and activism, community building, and restorative justice, among others. 

A terminal degree in a relevant discipline (e.g., community studies, sociology, psychology, public policy) is preferred, as well as successful experience in college teaching and in a work-related field. The position is not suitable for those possessing only a Juris Doctor. ABD’s will be considered, but the degree must be completed before August 2018.

The Justice and Policy Studies Department believes that the best possible education happens in a heterogeneous setting of mutual support and respect.  We wholeheartedly support Guilford College’s stated priority of being anti-racist and diverse. We specifically encourage applicants with identities, abilities and experiences that are underrepresented in higher education.

Guilford College is a selective liberal arts college founded in 1837 by the Society of Friends and enrolling approximately 1,800 traditional aged and older adult students. The College is guided by seven Core Values, grounded in its Quaker heritage: Community, Diversity, Equality, Excellence, Integrity, Justice, and Stewardship. Guilford’s campus is noted as an historical site where famed Quaker abolitionist, Levi Coffin, began his Underground Railroad activities. Additional information about the college may be found at

Candidates should send a cover letter, statement of teaching and research interests, curriculum vitae, transcripts, and three references to Dr. Hollyce “Sherry” Giles, Justice & Policies Studies Department Chair, through  Hard copies not accepted. Review of applications will begin on April 23rd.
