Position Description:

The Evergreen State College seeks two broadly trained part time faculty to teach in the Native Pathways Program. The Native Pathways Program is an upper division pathway to an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts degree for Native students and others interested in contemporary Native American issues. The Native Pathways Program offers an intensive evening and weekend program to accommodate place-bound and schedule-bound students. Native Pathways students typically enroll for 12 credits in the Program which combines weekly evening off- site classes and weekend classes at Evergreen’s Longhouse four times each quarter. A 5-credit online curriculum is also available on Canvas.

Students must have 90 transferable credits to enroll. A lower division bridge program is also available at Grays Harbor College and Peninsula College. A 9-credit core course is offered each quarter at three sites with face-to-face instruction: at the Quinault Indian Nation, Peninsula College, and Evergreen’s Tacoma Campus. These sites operate with a common syllabus and draw students from a broad urban and rural region as well as reservation communities. A new 5-credit online core course is also available for students unable to attend one of the other sites. The core courses for 2017-2018 are Tribal Administration (Fall), Ethics for Tribal Vitality (Winter), and Profiles in Leadership (Spring). In Fall 2017 the Saturday classes are September 30, October 21, November 11, and December 2.

The core courses are multidisciplinary and require a broadly trained applicant. Specific areas of interest to the College include the following:
• Native American Studies
• Business and non-profit administration
• Management, including Human Resources Management
• Human Services
• Law
• Social Sciences
• Cultural Studies
• Community Studies
• Political science/public administration
• History
• Administrative experience working with tribes and/or tribal organizations

We are currently requesting applications for two renewable faculty positions for fall quarter. The first position is to teach the online version of our core course on Tribal Administration. The other position is to teach the core course through two weekly face-to-face classes at our new Evergreen-Tacoma site. Review of applications begins June 2, 2017. The posting may close to new application materials at any time after this date.

These are adjunct faculty positions and are not eligible for continuing appointment. All requirements for these positions must be completed at the time of hire. Salary for all positions is based on experience and degrees (see http://www.evergreen.edu/facultyhiring/salarygrid for more information). We do not offer relocation expenses for our adjunct faculty positions.
