Adjunct Faculty MSL Program | University of the Pacific | Sacramento
Posted 02/23/2021

McGeorge School of Law invites applications for one adjunct professor position to develop a new online course on Water & Environmental Justice immediately, and to teach the course in 2021-22 academic year. This three-unit course will be fully online and asynchronous in delivery, and will primarily be offered to graduate law students, including LLM and MSL students.

The Water & Environmental Justice course is intended to explore challenges and opportunities in meeting the goal of providing a healthy environment and safe, affordable, accessible, and reliable water supplies to all people regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, economic status, national origin, and education level. Specific topics may include, among others, the human right to water, disparate impacts from facility siting, toxic exposure, climate justice, food security, access to nature, participation in environmental governance, and capacity building in disadvantaged communities. The faculty selected through this posting will choose the text and develop the substantive curriculum consistent with McGeorge standards. Faculty-student interaction (via asynchronous discussion, feedback, messaging, and remote office hours), accessibility, and achievement of credit hour standards are the highest priorities.

The adjunct professor will be required to follow a strict timeline for course development with mandatory deadlines, and to coordinate with McGeorge Online Graduate Programs and program partners on an ongoing basis. The professor will be assisted by an Instructional Designer (ID) who will handle technical issues and manage course development. The professor will be responsible for ensuring that content and content delivery is consistent with University of the Pacific and McGeorge School of Law policies, in coordination with the ID and McGeorge’s Faculty Director for Online Learning. Full-time faculty with subject-matter expertise are available for consultation. Training in online course development, recording technology, and other support will be provided.

Non-tenure-track faculty members collaborate in fulfilling the University’s mission to provide a superior, student-centered learning experience integrating liberal arts and professional education and preparing individuals for lasting achievement and responsible leadership in their careers and communities.

Part-time faculty are appointed as needed by each unit and considered as less than full time annual appointment as specified by each unit. Part time is determined by the unit based on a comparison to year-long appointments. Time of service on a part-time appointment may not accrue to time for appointment with tenure. (FHB 7.1.6). Appointments for full-time non-tenure-track faculty members may be issued as single-year or multi-year terms, and may be renewable.
