Position Announcement - UVSC

In what is becoming an annual tradition :-) that reflects our department's seriousness about developing its rhet/comp faculty, we bring you an announcement for a TT rhet/comp position in the English dept. Along with search committee chair Mark Crane, who follows this list, Bonnie Kyburz and I are happy to answer any questions you have about the position or the institution. The announcement has been posted to the MLA job list and the Chronicle as well. You may also want to know that the college is planning to be a comprehensive regional university three years from now, and that we anticipate this hire will be active in writing program administration (it's a committee effort here).

Cheers --
