About Us: Saint Vincent College is a Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts and sciences college of 1600 students located thirty-five miles southeast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Saint Vincent College maintains a strong commitment to the liberal arts and sciences that grows out of a 1500 year old Benedictine educational tradition. The Saint Vincent Core Curriculum ensures students a broad exposure to humanities, fine arts, social sciences, mathematics, and natural sciences, yet allows flexibility for students. Class sizes tend to be moderate: 25-30 students would be typical for an introductory course and 25 or fewer would be common in advanced courses.
The faculty community is enhanced by several interdisciplinary initiatives including the Interdisciplinary Writing program and a Freshmen Seminar program. The Teaching Enhancement Mentoring Program provides opportunities for professional development. As a primarily residential college serving traditional age students, Saint Vincent faculty work closely with students in and out of class.
The College offers support for conference participation and a modest intramural faculty research grant program. Computer and library support are competitive with other liberal arts institutions.
To apply: Send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, copies of transcripts, three letters of recommendation, and a statement of teaching philosophy to: Director of Human Resources, Saint Vincent College, 300 Fraser Purchase Road, Latrobe, PA 15650-2690 or electronic submissions can be mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Preliminary interviews will be held at the AAR/SBL Convention in Baltimore. Applications will be considered until the position is filled; for full consideration, apply by November 1st, 2013. This position requires the incumbent to be able to fully embrace the unique mission and identity of the College as a Catholic, Benedictine, and liberal arts institution. EOE
