The successful candidate may also be asked to participate in all-university programs, including the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum. Colgate strives to be a community supportive of diverse perspectives and identities. Candidates should describe in their cover letter or teaching statement how their approach to teaching and scholarship might support the university's commitment to diversity and inclusion.
