How to Prepare a Diversity Statement

Chair of the Department of English

Pomona College invites applications and nominations for an advanced Associate or Full Professor level faculty position to serve as Chair of the Department of English. At a moment when the department is in conversation about diversifying the major as well as building on its current strengths, the search committee seeks a dynamic leader, enthusiastic about advancing the study of literature as both a disciplinary and interdisciplinary practice, both within the department and in the larger field. Administrative or chairing experience is a plus. We have a strong preference for a scholar with research specializations in one or more of the following areas: African American, Arab American, Asian American, Latinx, Chicanx, Native American literatures, Multi-ethnic Literatures, and/or Critical Race Theory. We seek to attract, develop, and retain faculty that contribute to the cultural, linguistic, experiential, and diverse curricular offerings.  

Send statement of interest, short (750 word each, maximum) statements of teaching and diversity philosophy and administrative vision, and a list of three professional references with contact information (email only) to Academic Jobs Online https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/17589. Review of applications will begin on December 27th, 2020. We will be interviewing via video conferencing during the months of February and March.
