These are great jobs! We have a supportive and well organized program, perfect for new graduates and WPA's. The Associate Writing Program Director has been at the school for 23 years and helps the program running smoothly. The Dean is new and quite open to innovation, of which the Provost is also supportive. I feel truly lucky to be at this location, but have to leave for family reasons. I am happy to answer any questions about the jobs and about living in Cairo.

Please pass the word about these positions.
Thanks!
