The Ethnic Studies Department at Santa Clara University, a Jesuit, Catholic university,
seeks well-qualified individuals to teach a variety of lower and upper-division
undergraduate courses for Winter and Spring 2020. The courses to be covered include:
ETHN 5 Introduction to the Study of Race and Ethnicity in the U.S.

Positions are contingent upon enrollment.
Each quarter is 10 weeks long, with an 11th week for final examinations.
Each of the classes stipulated in this call (Ethnic Studies 5, 155, 172) satisfies a campus
core diversity requirement and as such the successful candidate will need to develop a
syllabus that fulfills the learning goals and objectives for this core, and will be asked to
submit a syllabus to the University Faculty Core Curriculum committee or to work with
the Ethnic Studies chair to ensure the syllabus is consistent with previously approved core
diversity classes in terms of assignment mapping of learning objectives.
Diversity courses directly address and help fulfill the university's mission of working
toward a more humane and just world. The courses deepen students' knowledge of diverse
human experiences, identities, and cultures. In this area, students will analyze the relations
between peoples or social categories that are associated with differences in power and
privilege, such as race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, citizenship, religion, class, sexual
orientation, physical ability, and so on.
