Saint Mary’s College of California is a private, Catholic, comprehensive and co-educational university that engages students in rigorous critical thinking, promotes social justice, and educates for human fulfillment consistent with its liberal arts, Catholic and Lasallian traditions. The de La Salle Christian Brothers, the largest teaching order of the Roman Catholic Church, guide the spiritual and academic character of the College. An outstanding, committed faculty and staff who value shared inquiry, integrative learning and student interaction bring Saint Mary’s heritage to life. Located on a stunning 420-acre campus in the Moraga Hills outside of San Francisco, Saint Mary’s is known for its rigorous liberal arts education and its high quality graduate programs, including business, education, counseling, leadership, and the arts.

The Department is particularly interested in makers and scholars with expertise in current practices in digital media and production (examples include Non-fiction and Documentary, Video Game Production and Studies, Social Media, and Digital Storytelling). While the candidate must have knowledge and experience in teaching technology within the context of a digital-media production curriculum, a strong understanding and commitment to the broader components of the field of Communication and ability to teach across the curriculum is strongly preferred.

Successful candidates must be able to engage and support students of color, women, and other underrepresented groups, and will be interested in participating in initiatives that aim to increase inclusivity.

Faculty Responsibilities:
Primarily responsible for instruction in, and continued development of, digital media production courses, including video production, audio production, and other advanced media production courses. Production courses within the department include a balance of history, theory, and criticism along with production practices. In addition to teaching courses within the specific area listed above, all faculty in the department share responsibility for the Communication Major curriculum, and are expected to teach a wide variety of lower division and upper division courses required in the major.

Saint Mary’s faculty are expected to maintain an active scholarly agenda and demonstrate intellectual growth and significant achievement appropriate to their field. Faculty also contribute to the mission and serve the College and community in many ways, including academic advising, student and community outreach, participation in departmental and College-wide committees, and the development and assessment of the College’s Core Curriculum. Faculty are also encouraged to teach in the College’s Core Curriculum, January Term, and Collegiate Seminar programs.

Application Instructions
Include: A cover letter, CV, portfolio of creative work, a teaching philosophy, and contact information for three references. The cover letter should specifically address 1) candidate qualifications, 2) preparation to support the mission of the College, 3) a demonstrated commitment to and success working in diverse, multicultural communities, preferably in higher education settings, 4) specifically, an explanation of how your scholarship and teaching are attentive to socially and economically marginalized communities and contribute to social justice--in line with our College Mission, 5) your view of current practices in digital media and production, and 6) specific expertise you bring to the department in this area.

Candidates who make it to the first round of interviews may be asked to provide samples of student work, scholarly work, course evaluations, and sample syllabi.

Please apply online at http://apptrkr.com/1308415

Questions should be directed to the search chair, Scott M. Schönfeldt-Aultman, atsschonfe@stmarys-ca.edu.
