Position Summary:
Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) is seeking faculty members committed to the college's philosophy that education serves the greater good by providing students access to a better life. The candidates for faculty positions understand that community colleges are positioned to fundamentally change people's lives, and as a result, society itself. Required qualities include a belief that continuous improvement in pedagogy and relationships with students, other faculty, and staff are hallmarks of an educator who has been called to the profession. We are seeking colleagues who embrace the idea of helping students achieve their goals, and approach academic excellence as evidenced in equity as a moral imperative.

AACC believes that faculty are the heart of the institution. We are seeking faculty members who are energized by the community college pathways and inclusivity/equity initiatives, and see it as their job to support a diverse set of learners inside and outside the classroom. AACC embraces the notion of life-long learning and continuous improvement, and so is looking for those with a sincere desire to self-reflect on personal instructional practices and work collaboratively with colleagues to improve teaching and learning for all students. The faculty members that AACC seeks to hire live a daily work commitment to the democratic ideal espoused in AACC's mission.

A nursing candidate with mental health experience should demonstrate a proven ability to teach college-level mental health nursing courses. Current experience in the mental health clinical arena is required. Additionally, excellence in oral, written and interpersonal communication skills is expected. Teaching assignments are 15 faculty load hours per semester. The faculty will deliver the subject content in a manner that engages the student by applying technology to the teaching and learning process, along with presenting the curriculum using various formats. Teaching is done in the classroom, mental health college lab, and at assigned clinical facilities on a mental health unit. Integrating learning outcomes assessment to monitor student progress is essential. Advising nursing students throughout the nursing program is a key responsibility of full-time faculty to promote student success. Full-time faculty are expected to participate on committees in the nursing department, school of health sciences, and the college. Participating in ongoing professional development and mentoring new and adjunct faculty are other duties of full-time nursing faculty.


The Nurse Support Program II provides funding for New Nursing Faculty Fellowships to faculty newly hired to expand Maryland's nursing programs. Maryland institutions with nursing degree programs may nominate an unlimited number of newly hired full time faculty members for fellowships. These fellowships will assist Maryland nursing programs in recruiting and retaining new nursing faculty to produce the additional nursing graduates required by Maryland's hospitals.

Job Duties and Responsibilities:
With meeting community needs and improving teaching and learning among Anne Arundel Community College's highest priorities, we are strategically positioned to set and surpass new standards of excellence in our primary teaching and learning mission. Guided by principles that emphasize equity and student success, especially in learning, and continuous improvement for a progressive and vital learning community, we envision AACC as a premier learning organization that is in the vanguard of community college education. As a consequence, we welcome qualified faculty candidates who
• integrate learning outcomes assessment techniques in their instructional planning, curriculum design, and teaching activities
• apply informational technology to the teaching and learning process
• deliver instruction in a variety of formats
• understand and apply learning organization theory
• thrive in cross-functional roles
• make data-driven decisions
• collaborate in flexible, imaginative problem-solving
• integrate interdisciplinary and global perspectives into their methodology

While faculty work of 30 faculty load hours an academic year will include primary responsibilities for teaching and assessing learning and for institutional service, advising, and professional development, the college seeks to break the frame that traditionally surrounds faculty assignments, especially since academic divisional needs vary. As such, faculty should expect to integrate with their primary responsibilities some combination of the following,
• creating experiential learning opportunities and assessment techniques, (e.g., work-based and service learning portfolio assessment, including developing and evaluating learning portfolios etc.)
• mentoring
o students from target groups
o new full-time faculty
o part-time faculty
• designing, formatting and delivering curriculum for synchronous and asynchronous learning
• training and consulting for workforce initiatives (e.g., for public and corporate partners, etc.)
• developing and implementing community education and extended learning programs
• partnering with colleagues to enhance services to students and the community
o recruiting and marketing
o advising with expanded responsibilities
o devising retention strategies and activities
• strengthening relations and collaborative activities with K-12 and baccalaureate-granting colleagues
