The Department of Social Entrepreneurship at Rollins College invites interested individuals to apply for adjunct faculty positions in Social Entrepreneurship.
The Social Entrepreneurship major is AACSB-accredited and combines business skills; entrepreneurial thinking and action; cutting-edge problem-solving methodologies; and understanding of current economic, political, cultural, and environmental issues. 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.
We are looking for adjuncts to teach a required course in the major and/or a social entrepreneurship-related elective course based on their area of expertise. Recent electives have included topics such as social impact reporting; law & environmental sustainability; sales & negotiation; and digital technology, but there are many possibilities as long as the course is centered around social enterprise examples/context.
This is a continuous recruitment effort to develop an applicant pool that can fill in on an as-needed basis. Applications, letters of interest, and other supporting materials will be reviewed as positions become available. Depending on the course, approximately 18- 22 students are enrolled. It is possible to arrange teaching early in the morning to reduce conflicts with outside work schedules. Social Entrepreneurship courses are not offered in the evening.
Teaching responsibilities include:
- Teaching undergraduate students in a specific field of expertise related to Social Entrepreneurship (SE)
- Developing and managing the class syllabus and ensuring that the syllabus meets department and college standards
- Utilizing project-based, experiential learning techniques
- Planning and creating lectures, in-class discussions, and assignments
- Grading assignments: papers, quizzes, projects, exams, etc.
- Assessing grades for students based on participation, performance in class, and assignments
- Collaborating with department colleagues on course curriculum
