Writing Specialist FT Faculty Position: Lane Community College, Eugene, OR

English Faculty/Writing Specialist - 2 positions

Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon, is recruiting two (2) full-time, contracted Writing and Literature faculty members to begin work Fall 2013 (subject to budget). We are looking for individuals with a strong commitment to a career of teaching in community colleges.

As English faculty at Lane, we pride ourselves on our passion for teaching, our commitment to students and our independence. We have a history of developing innovative courses in writing, literature and film studies, as well as a tradition of teaching in learning communities. We are looking for passionate and engaged colleagues who demonstrate exceptional teaching skills, who challenge students through innovative and diverse courses, and whose enthusiasm for teaching writing and literature inspire all students to achieve Lane’s vision of “Transforming Lives through Learning.”

The Writing/Composition Program is a vibrant part of the English Department with a focus on teaching writing as a rhetorical process as well as a productive mode of thinking and being in the world. Writing at Lane encompasses a range of courses, including basic writing, introductory college composition, professional/technical writing and creative writing, and emphasizes student success through critically reflective teaching supported by a community of shared theory and practice. That community is enriched by a diverse array of faculty expertise and strengthened by dynamic projects such as ongoing faculty professional development, program-wide assessment, and initiatives that promote cross-campus development in writing across the curriculum.

Lane Community College students range from high-school graduates to adult learners planning to transfer to nearby University of Oregon and other four-year institutions, to displaced workers of all ages, transitioning parents, and students who are the first in their families to attend college. A demonstrated commitment to meeting the needs of diverse students is therefore essential.
