ABOUT THE INSTITUTION: Illinois Tech is a private Ph.D.-granting research university with world- renowned programs in engineering, architecture, the sciences, humanities, psychology, business, law, and design. Founded in 1890, Illinois Tech was born different. It was built on the promise set forth in minister Frank Wakely Gunsaulus’ “Million Dollar Sermon” to provide access to higher education for students from all different backgrounds and to make a difference in the world through technology-oriented education. This guiding mission and purpose – where students, including those underrepresented in technology, could prepare for meaningful roles in a changing industrial society and achieve professional and economic advancement – remains just as relevant today. Thus, diversity and inclusion are part of the day-to-day experience at Illinois Tech and a central component of its culture. As such, Illinois Tech is home to a diverse and global student population, is committed to providing opportunities to enhance the diversity of its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages applicants from all backgrounds to apply for this position, especially those underrepresented in the field.
