About Roger Williams University:

Roger Williams University, located on the coast of Bristol, RI, is a forward-thinking private university with 45 undergraduate majors and more than a dozen graduate programs spanning the liberal arts and the professions, where students become community-minded citizens through project-based, experiential learning. With small classes, direct access to faculty and boundless opportunities for real-world projects, RWU students develop the ability to think critically while simultaneously building the practical skills that today's employers demand. In the five years since launching its signature Affordable Excellence initiative, the University has established itself as a leader in American higher education by confronting the most pressing issues facing students and families - increasing costs that limit access to college, rising debt and the job readiness of graduates. In addition to its 4,000 undergraduates and 300 graduate students, RWU is home to a thriving School of Continuing Studies based in Providence as well as Rhode Island's only law school.

Roger Williams University is committed to creating and supporting an intellectual community devoted to teaching and learning and providing the opportunity for personal and intellectual growth for students, faculty and staff. The University credits much of its growth and success to the hard work and dedication of its employees.

Job Description:

The General Education Program at Roger Williams University is seeking Adjunct Faculty to teach Core 103: Human Behavior in Perspective as part of its Interdisciplinary Core Program.

Upon completion of CORE 103: Human Behavior in Perspective, students are expected to be able to:
  • Explain and describe human behavior from various social scientific points of view, and
  • Demonstrate an awareness of human diversity.

Candidates with expertise in social scientific approaches to various aspects of human diversity-including race & ethnicity, social class, gender & sexuality, or disability-are strongly encouraged to apply. Interdisciplinary and global/intercultural approaches are also of special interest.

The Five-Course Interdisciplinary Core is based on learning outcomes drawn from the traditional liberal arts: the sciences, history and politics, the social sciences, literature and philosophy, and the fine arts. In these courses students examine great ideas, historic milestones, and works of art; discover connections among different areas of knowledge and methods for gathering it; learn to reason logically, to sift through deception and cant, and to integrate what they know. Students generally complete these five courses during the freshman and sophomore years.

While the five Interdisciplinary Core courses vary in topic, theme, method, and approach, they all address the three Core questions that unite the Core Curriculum: Who am I? What can I know? And based on what I know, how should I act?


Candidates must have a minimum of a Master's degree in a related field, such as Psychology, Anthropology, Sociology, Gender Studies, Sexuality Studies, Africana Studies, Hispanic/Latino Studies, Asian Studies, etc., along with evidence of recent teaching effectiveness.
