Seeking Faculty for Fall 2022

By | May 21, 2022

From instructors to TAs, tutors to research assistants, it takes a remarkable and generous community to provide a world-class education to our students. We’re currently seeking volunteers to serve as faculty at Mount Tamalpais College in fall of 2022. Join us to be part of a college unlike any other in the U.S — an independent, accredited Liberal Arts college inside San Quentin state prison. 

There are a variety of roles for educators at Mount Tamalpais College. For all of these roles, we seek individuals who are committed to our mission and to working with diverse communities. All faculty are required to have some teaching or tutoring experience, and credit course faculty also must have a graduate degree—ideally a PhD—in a relevant discipline. People who have been directly impacted by incarceration, or who reflect the cultural, ethnic, socio-economic, and racial diversity of our student body are especially encouraged to apply.

You can learn more about the various roles and teaching opportunities here, and submit your application at the links below. We will start reviewing applications on May 31, 2022. While we will still accept applications past the deadline, applications received by the deadline will be prioritized.

It's been a rough few weeks in terms of media layoffs so I want to flag a job I'm helping hire for: @prisonjourn, which trains incarcerated people as journalists and helps them get published, is hiring a managing editor to run all of its editorial strategy

Teaching @StanfordLaw students alongside incarcerated students at @MtTamCollege in #SanQuentin was a highlight of the year—with hopefully more to come!

A fascinating glimpse at the history of higher education at San Quentin! While many hurdles still exist when running a college with a prison as its campus, at least we no longer have to "copy, stencil, and mimeograph" course materials to bring them inside.
