The Chicago School’s Bachelor’s program is a very new program with plans to grow and expand in such areas as Applied Behavior Analysis and service learning collaborations with Community Partnerships and Interwoven Center.

  • Spring                 Teach 3 credit hours      Advise 4 contact hours (equivalent to 2 credit hours)
  • Summer             Teach 0 credit hours      Advise 2 contact hours (equivalent to 1 credit hour)

The affiliate faculty member will be encouraged to teach additional courses in the Bachelor’s program for overage pay if they so choose.

Essential Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

Candidates for this position must minimally have an appreciation and enthusiasm for undergraduate teaching and mentorship, ideally bringing expertise and background in this area. Successful candidates should have a proven track record of graduate or undergraduate-level teaching and clinical experience.  The ability to mentor a diverse student body, utilize technology/varied educational methods, support student scholarship, and support new program initiatives are important qualities.
