UMass Boston is an urban public research university with a teaching soul, whose impact is both local and global. We are the third most diverse university in the country – more than 60% of our undergraduate students come from minoritized communities and groups and more than half of our students are the first in their families to attend a college or university. Thus, our students come to us from richly diverse life experiences and backgrounds; they bring to our classrooms and research settings the robust range of perspectives growing out of the socio-cultural, economic, and historical contexts in which they have lived, along with the challenges they encounter, engage, and strive to overcome. We invite applications from candidates who engage the diverse life experiences of our student body, who appreciate that students bring their holistic selves into the academic setting, and who recognize and articulate how their own life experiences and backgrounds have shaped their journeys, practices, and commitments as researchers, scholars, and educators.
Interested applicants should send all materials electronically. Please include a cover letter or a statement of interest, a current curriculum vitae (CV), samples of research publications, three letters of reference, and teaching evaluations if available.
