Founded in 1890, Illinois Tech was built on the promise 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. As such, diversity and inclusion are part of the day-to-day experience at Illinois Tech and a central component of its culture. 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.

(ii) curriculum vitae;

(iii) teaching statements;

(iv) evidence of teaching effectiveness;

(v) a succinct, one-page statement on the candidate’s commitment to equity and inclusion in education—this statement should address specific past and/or potential contributions to the equitable and inclusive delivery of academic instruction and support to and research mentorship of students from a diverse background of countries, cultures and socioeconomic conditions;
