The ideal candidate will be a dynamic individual with a demonstrated interest in the liberal arts who will engage with our students inside and outside of the classroom.  UMM emphasizes close student-faculty relationships and faculty-directed student research. An active research program is expected, and research collaboration with undergraduate students is highly valued.

As member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges, (COPLAC), UMM is an undergraduate-focused residential liberal arts community that provides a rigorous academic experience preparing its students to be global citizens who value and pursue intellectual growth, civic engagement, intercultural competence, and environmental stewardship. The student body of approximately 1900 students is supported by 120 faculty members with a student/faculty ratio of 15/1.  The Morris campus is the most ethnically diverse in the University of Minnesota system with 27 percent students of color (of which 18 percent are American Indian students) and 11 percent international students.  Morris values diversity in its students, faculty, and staff.  Morris is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to the diversity of our community through their teaching, research, and/or service because we believe that diversity enriches the classroom and research experience at the University.
