Candidates will also be expected to demonstrate evidence of excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels through teaching accomplishments, the teaching dossier submitted as part of the application (with required materials outlined below), as well as strong letters of reference. Professional or lived experiences that enhance the ability to teach a diverse student body are highly valued.
