UMGC is a globally-focused university serving more than 80,000 students worldwide. It has been delivering education to the U.S. military installations in Europe/Asia for more than 65 years. UMGC seeks experienced faculty to travel and teach America’s soldiers, marines, airmen and sailors, and their family members, in degree programs at military installations.

We are seeking faculty in the following subject areas. Preference will be given to candidates with academic and professional experience in more than two of the desired disciplines.

Biology/Math
Business Management/Information Systems Management
Business Management/History/Government

Overseas Collegiate Faculty are Collegiate Faculty who teach at Overseas locations as assigned by UMGC. At the request of the University, Overseas Collegiate Faculty members are subject to geographical assignment at all locations within their assigned region of UMGC Europe, UMGC Asia, or UMGC Downrange, and are required to relocate to new geographical areas within the faculty member’s assigned region throughout the appointment period.

Faculty selected for these one-year positions will teach a minimum of two class sections a session in on-base education centers in UMGC’s unique unique 7 or 8-week, 6-session academic calendar . With few exceptions, faculty will live off-base and commute by car to their classes. Faculty may be asked to travel or relocate within their region as needed. Full-privilege, base access cards will allow utilization of on-base gyms, commissaries, gas stations, convenience stores, shopping facilities (PX, BX or NEX), banks, libraries, travel/tour agencies, and post offices.  Faculty members are required to be flexible/committed to teaching in any classroom modality (face-to-face, hybrid, online, and live streaming).

These position openings should be distinguished from “visiting professor” programs that are frequently used by overseas universities. These UMGC Europe/ Asia faculty positions rely much more on a faculty member’s ability to function independently.

Faculty are required to adhere to UMGC’s Code of Civility and MUST demonstrate professionalism, respect, and ability to work with students, staff, fellow faculty, and others associated with the military overseas environment, including members of the local community. UMGC's overseas collegiate faculty are part of the broader UMGC community, and provide support to one another and to staff, through activities such as peer mentorship, committee service, curriculum development, and more. In addition, UMGC strives to be active in and of service to the local community through a variety of activities such as UMGC Presents, education fairs, and community service activities. Overseas collegiate faculty are expected to be active participants and contributors to such activities. Additionally, faculty MUST demonstrate classroom performance that is conducive to the following:

Actively engage students through frequent interaction that motivates them to succeed, and conveys a genuine energy and enthusiasm for their learning.
Guide students in active collaboration and the application of their learning in problem- and project-based learning demonstrations.
Provide rich and regular constructive feedback, utilizing rubrics effectively for the assessment of student work, and acknowledging student accomplishments.
Demonstrate relevant and current subject-matter expertise, and help students connect concepts across their academic program.
QUALIFICATIONS:

UMGC is seeking professionals who can combine academic credentials and teaching experience with travel savvy, enthusiasm for educating our troops, and a passion for adventure. All positions require a minimum of a master’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S institution with a doctorate preferred and recent college-level teaching experience. Preference also will be given to candidates with teaching approvals and experience in more than two of the desired disciplines. Although these positions are for on-site teaching, each on-site class has an embedded online classroom where some course activities are conducted and the course materials are located.

Applicants must be eligible for individual logistical support in host countries and, because it is required for certain locations, must be U.S. citizens. In addition, all applicants must have a favorable background check under the terms of the agreements between the United States and the host countries. Faculty members must be generally self-reliant and independent. Faculty members are required to accept course and location assignments, although preferences are given consideration. Faculty members may sponsor their eligible family members, who may also be eligible to receive a full-privilege ID card.

BENEFITS:
