Lecturers also develop the curriculum in our first year service courses.

Evidence of experience or interest in teaching large classes or coordinating classes is valued.
2. Complete an application within the University of Kentucky employment system.

As a department and university, we are strongly committed to creating an inclusive and effective teaching, learning, research, and working environment for all (see…). For your statement on inclusion, diversity, and equity, in one to two pages, applicants are asked to reflect on their commitments, approaches, and insights related to inclusion, diversity, and equity.
