The Colorado College Block Plan is an intensive academic schedule in which professors teach and students take only one course at a time for 3.5 weeks. The Block Plan lends itself to field and project-based teaching, and support for field trips and community-based learning projects is available. Normal teaching load is six blocks a year, including a block for senior capstone project supervision. The ideal candidate will teach a variety of courses for the program, including a first-year experience course in Southwest Studies, participating in junior research seminar, offering courses in their areas of specialization, and advising senior capstone projects for Southwest Studies majors. Southwest Studies Program faculty are affiliated with the Hulbert Center for Southwest Studies, which supports academic and outreach programs, as well as faculty scholarship, concerning the Southwest. We are committed to increasing the diversity of the Colorado College community. Candidates who contribute to that goal, including women and minorities, are particularly encouraged to apply, and encouraged to identify relevant strengths or experiences. A PhD in a relevant field is required by the time of appointment. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching statement, research statement, graduate and undergraduate transcripts, and three letters of recommendation electronically on the Colorado College Employment Career Site.
