In addition, FAU’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute is located nearby in Fort Pierce. 

The WHC’s four-year curriculum is centered on the traditional disciplines in the liberal arts and sciences, with an emphasis on critical thinking, independent study, community-based internships, and cross-disciplinary programs. Currently, the WHC enrolls 690 honors students and has 42 full-time honors faculty members. As part of the University’s ambitious strategic plan, the WHC will increase the size of its student body and grow its faculty over the next five years. See www.honorscollege.edu

The committee will view favorably potential for collaboration in the interdisciplinary teaching activities of the college, experience in advising and mentoring undergraduate students, demonstrated skill in understanding of cultural differences, and experience working directly with people from diverse racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Candidates should also demonstrate a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
