The successful hire will have access to the studio space for any complementary personal and professional

Having relevant teaching experience, subject matter expertise, and advanced academic credentials and/or substantial practitioner experience in related fields is essential. Sterling encourages applications from candidates who have professionally demonstrated a commitment to interdisciplinary, experiential, outdoor-oriented, hands-on learning through study and work as well as our ecological thinking and action mission, and a commitment to pedagogy that integrates multicultural perspectives in the curriculum and promotes inclusion in the classroom. The College is committed to in-person instruction, but experience and familiarity using online tools will be seen as a strength. Sterling is one of nine federally designated work colleges. As such, new faculty members will also serve as work program supervisors.
