ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College (MLFTC) and the Division of Education Leadership & Innovation invites applications to establish a pool for Faculty Associates in the Educational Policy Program for the 2024-2025 academic year. Successful candidates will teach in-person courses, prepare course materials, evaluate student work, and assist students. The Educational Policy program welcomes applications from candidates who align with ASU’s charter and are committed to inclusive excellence and student success. The successful candidate will also advance ASU’s Design Aspirations through teaching and service.

ASU is a comprehensive public research university, measured not by whom it excludes, but by whom it includes and how they succeed; advancing research and discovery of public value; and assuming fundamental responsibility for the economic, social, cultural and overall health of the communities it serves.

Successful candidates will demonstrate throughout their materials how their work will contribute to the fulfillment of this charter.

Faculty Associate positions are one semester (7.5 or 15 weeks), non-benefits-eligible, and fixed-term appointments with no tenure implications, not to exceed .40 FTE. The number of courses is contingent upon needs, funding, and sufficient enrollment. Individuals hired as Faculty Associates may not hold multiple, non-benefits-eligible appointments at Arizona State University. Salary is based upon qualifications and assigned teaching load.

This recruitment is to establish a part-time hiring pool for temporary and semester appointments. Applications are considered for the current year only. Applicants who are not hired are encouraged to reapply for the next posting.

This position serves as a lead instructor and includes teaching in-person during scheduled class times, managing the course Canvas (learning management system) page for the course, and establishing warm and supportive relationships with students through class meetings, office hours, emails, and in-person or Zoom meetings, as needed.
