DISCIPLINE Speech-Language Pathology TYPE Faculty
Position Summary:  The Department of Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) invites applications for a full-time, tenure-line faculty position at the Assistant or Associate level.  We are building upon our highly regarded undergraduate program as we launch a graduate program in speech-language pathology in June 2022.  In line with MSU Denver’s goal to become a model Hispanic-Serving Institution for higher education, our department is committed to providing inclusive and accessible academic programs.  We are particularly interested in applicants who share in this programmatic vision.  Successful applicants will also demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence and high-impact teaching practices, as well as pursue scholarly activities and professional development; advise and mentor students from a large, diverse urban population; and engage in appropriate service to the department, university and profession. 
The University is particularly interested in applicants who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds and a demonstrated commitment to improving access to higher education for under-represented groups.
