Filed in Faculty on January 14, 2020
The Department of Communication at the University of Texas at Arlington invites applications for a tenure-stream position as Assistant/Associate Professor of Philanthropy and Director of the Philanthropy program, to start in the Fall 2020 semester.
The teaching load is nominally 4 courses per year but may be adjusted based upon significant research productivity and administrative/service duties that relate to the philanthropy program. The position does entail efforts toward the development of the philanthropy program, recruiting students, and engaging community partners.
The successful applicant will be an exceptional educator and active researcher who can contribute significantly to a new bachelor of arts in Philanthropy degree. Ideally, the candidate will be a mid-career individual who can develop and lead the philanthropy program. As a tenure-track or tenured faculty member, the individual selected will be expected to conduct publishable research in well-respected academic outlets, teach in our academic programs and provide professional service to the school, campus, and the field. Successful candidates are expected to demonstrate a commitment to diversity and equity in education through their scholarship, teaching, and/or service.
The Bachelor of Arts in Philanthropy at UT Arlington is an interdisciplinary program and partnership between the College of Liberal Arts and College of Business. Thus, although the faculty member will primarily be housed in the Department of Communication in the College of Liberal Arts, the person will also closely liaise with the College of Business.
The director will have an opportunity to build a new academic program in the study of philanthropy, preparing students both academically and experientially, to enter the third largest workforce sector in the U.S, employing 10 percent of the nation's population.
Preference will be given to applicants with teaching and research interests, qualifications, and/or experience related to one or more of the following areas: philanthropic, marketing, public relations, nonprofit management, and communication. Successful candidates are expected to demonstrate a commitment to diversity and equity in education through their scholarship, teaching, and/or service.
Required Qualifications
* Earned doctoral degree in Philanthropic Studies, Nonprofit Management, Communication, Marketing, or related field required.
Preferred Qualifications
* Experience leading nonprofit organizations or philanthropic activities
* Training or experience in grant writing.
To apply, please go to and submit the following by February 15, 2020 in order to ensure consideration:
1. A cover letter that explains the candidate's interest in UTA, qualifications especially related to experience establishing and leading a program in philanthropy, research projects, teaching experience, and professional service and that addresses how the candidate's research, teaching, and service has or would support the success of a diverse student population.
2. A CV with relevant research and teaching.
3. A vision for a philanthropy program, preferably not to exceed 500 words.
4. A substantive writing sample (e.g., dissertation chapter, article/book chapter).
5. Names and contact information of three (3) references.
