    Minerva Schools at KGI Consulting Project Applications due May 1, 2019

    Minerva Schools at KGI

    The Minerva Schools at KGI (the Keck Graduate Institute) prepare students to become innovators and global leaders in a wide variety of disciplines. Our aim is to reinvent higher education at every level, from how we define the curriculum to how we teach. All Minerva classes are seminars, not lecture courses, and use active learning to help students learn to think critically and creatively as well as to communicate and interact effectively with others. Students live together in residence halls, in San Francisco for the first year and then in six different cities. We teach using the Minerva Active Learning Forum, a web-based platform that supports real-time, synchronous seminars (ranging from 15-19 students) with high levels of student-faculty interaction. The majority of our students are undergraduates pursuing four-year degrees.

    You are a good fit for a Minerva faculty position if you are eager to join one of the most innovative institutions in higher education today. As a student-centric program, we focus on learning outcomes, small interactive class sessions, and deep engagement with students.

    Please see minerva.kgi.edu for more information.


    We are seeking an adjunct faculty member/consultant whose expertise is intercultural competency in a global context. The person appointed will work with a small group that is developing a new course that students will take over the course of their four years of study with Minerva. Students come to Minerva in San Francisco as freshmen from as many of 50 different countries in a class of about 150 and travel to six other countries over their four years of study. This course is intended to build their intercultural competency skills and to deepen their understanding of the cultures that they will experience in their studies, both within their cohort and in the cities where they will study.


    Candidates must have an earned doctorate in a relevant discipline and a deep knowledge of intercultural competency and the various ICC frameworks and models; experience working with high- achieving college students, especially students from many different cultures and countries; familiarity with the principles of active learning.

    This appointment is for co-development of the first of eight half-credit modules of a four-year, four- credit course. The project is underway now and the candidate must be available to work with the team during May through early July. While the initial appointment will be for that period only, it could lead to additional work as the full course is developed and offered for the first time over the next four years.

    The compensation for this initial appointment is $1500.

    To apply

    Candidates should submit:

    ·         A CV or resume

    ·         A cover letter explaining why they would be a good fit to develop this course.

    ·         The names of three people who can attest to their experience and qualities relevant to this project.

    Please submit no later than May 1, 2019 to be considered for this role. Interviews will be held May 1-10 and the appointment made by May 15.

    If you are interested, please contact Teri Cannon, Chief Accreditation Officer and Chief Student Affairs and Operations Officer directly at teri@minervaproject.com

    The School of Professional & Extended Studies (SPExS) is seeking experienced instructors to teach Intercultural Understanding to first year students across a range of programs, including the Washington Mentorship Program (WMP) and the International Accelerator Program (IAP).   Successful candidates may also have the opportunity to teach in other SPExS courses, as needed, including Graduate Professional Studies (online learning) and the Washington Semester Program.  Faculty are expected to teach six courses per year, regularly attend meetings, have a presence in the university community, and collaborate with other faculty and staff to provide outstanding and innovative instruction to students in a range of programs.  Faculty are expected to hold regular office hours and participate in School and University activities and service.  All School of Professional & Extended Studies programs emphasize experiential learning approaches that extend beyond traditional classroom-based teaching.  Classes may be offered in the morning, evening, and/or weekends.  Applicants should share American University’s commitment to inclusive excellence.
