The Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment invites applications for a Visiting Professor of Policy and Social Justice. This is a three-semester fixed-term appointment starting in January, 2019 and continuing through the 2019-2020 full academic year.
Rank is open, and applications from both highly accomplished practitioners, as well as senior faculty, are invited.
The ideal candidate's research or practice would focus on the causes, consequences, politics, and remedies of racial and ethnic inequality, including intersectional approaches. While a range of policy specialties will be considered, a research and publications record focused on social stratification by race, gender and/or some other identity perspective is preferred. The successful candidate will also have experience and be interested in working with students in the Milano School's vibrant doctoral program.
In Spring 2019, the teaching and advising load will be determined in consultation with the Milano School Dean. In academic year 2019-2020, the teaching expectation will be the equivalent of five courses spanning the academic year, both required core courses for the master's in Public and Urban Policy and at least one elective in the area of racial and economic inequality.
The Milano School offers master's degrees in Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management, Nonprofit Management, Organizational Change Management, Public and Urban Policy, and a PhD program in Public and Urban Policy, as well as three professional certificates in Leadership and Change, Sustainability Strategies, and Organization Development.
The Public and Urban Policy Program with its multidisciplinary masters-level curriculum marries theory with practical training and experiential learning, emphasizing analysis, evaluation, and solving public problems using quantitative and qualitative research and data analysis, policy analysis, and other methods to build consensus and spark change. The Nonprofit Management and Organizational Change Management Programs focus on creating innovators, who offer inspired and imaginative solutions to organizational and social problems. They emphasize collaborative approaches to starting and leading organizations through a holistic and practice-based approach. The Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management Program addresses global environmental issues and the transdisciplinarity of sustainability practice and environmental policy and seeks just responses for all communities through the program's collaborative and integrative outlook.
