The Department of Social Entrepreneurship at Rollins College invites interested individuals to apply for an adjunct faculty position teaching one undergraduate course -- Social Entrepreneurship Marketing -- in the Fall 2021 semester. This course is a required course for the Social Entrepreneurship major at Rollins. Approximately 18-20 students will take the course. It is possible to arrange teaching early in the morning to avoid conflicts with outside work schedules. This class is not offered in the evening.

The Social Entrepreneurship Marketing course introduces marketing for social enterprises, non-profits and socially responsible businesses focusing on the customer/beneficiary needs and experiences. Topics covered include opportunity-risk recognition, market research & identification, value creation, situational-marketing analysis, segmentation-targeting-positioning, pricing, distribution channels, international marketing, and marketing communication strategies. Differently than traditional marketing courses, the course reviews both social marketing for social change and commercial marketing principles.

Applications, letters of interest, and other supported materials will be reviewed until the position is filled.

Ideal applicants will have professional experience related to Social Entrepreneurship, be dedicated to innovative teaching and building relationships, and are welcoming to opportunities that will allow them to work with a diverse campus and community.
