This position is no longer an active posting on HigherEdJobs
Indiana State University has a strategic goal to employ and retain highly qualified faculty from historically underrepresented groups given our leadership role in the state enrolling among the highest proportion and aggregate number of diverse students (more than 1/4 of our student body), particularly African Americans.

Resources are available through our opportunity hire program to consider diverse candidates for positions that are not one from a posted faculty search. Hence, we invite letters of interest and vita from persons who might like to be considered for a regular faculty position (tenure/tenure track of any rank or full time instructor) in an academic department where a search is not currently listed. Please advance your interest through the Faculty Opportunity Hire Program link at this website: https://jobs.indstate.edu/.

Applicant materials will be advanced to the appropriate Dean/department chair(s) for consideration. Applicants will be contacted regarding the unit(s) to which their materials have been advanced and notified in a timely manner as to the status of their inquiry and the consideration of an interview.

The list of ISU departments/programs above can be found via a link from our undergraduate catalog: http://catalog.indstate.edu/content.php?catoid=13&navoid=287 and the graduate catalog: http://catalog.indstate.edu/content.php?catoid=14&navoid=313.

For additional information, please contact Kandace Hinton, Special Assistant to the Provost for Academic Initiatives (Kandace.Hinton@indstate.edu; 812-237-2897 in the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
