  • a curriculum vitae,
  • a statement of teaching philosophy in a liberal arts setting that demonstrates a commitment to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion,
  • an (unofficial) graduate transcript, and
  • three letters of recommendation, at least one of which addresses the applicant's teaching in detail.
The University of the South includes a nationally ranked residential College of Arts and Sciences and a School of Theology. The University is strongly committed to the values of intellectual inquiry, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and living and serving in community. Situated on 13,000 acres atop Tennessee’s Cumberland Plateau, Sewanee is known for its stunning natural beauty while providing easy access to Chattanooga, Nashville, and Huntsville.
