The Department of Social Entrepreneurship at Rollins College is seeking applicants for a visiting faculty position in Social Entrepreneurship at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning in August 2019. Teaching load: eight courses each year, typically four courses per semester; however, one course may be offered during Maymester (right after spring term). The Department of Social Entrepreneurship will be conducting another search later this year for a tenure-track position which begins in the fall of 2020.

The Department of Social Entrepreneurship offers the first AACSB-accredited Social Entrepreneurship major in the world, in addition to a Social Entrepreneurship minor.
The Social Entrepreneurship major was a designated 2018 semi-finalist for the most prestigious social entrepreneurship education award across the globe, the Ashoka U Innovation Award.

Our Social Entrepreneurship courses focus on practical application of business skills to tackle social, political, economic and environmental issues locally, domestically and internationally; the UN Sustainable Development Goals are integrated throughout our coursework.

Social Entrepreneurship courses are interdisciplinary, require active learning strategies (not lecture-reliant) and involve such practices as out-of-the-classroom experiential learning, community engagement projects, human centered design-thinking, business model canvas projects, public poster sessions and pitch competitions. Ability to embed these course components is expected. Ability to link one’s own practical experience with social entrepreneurship to classroom learning strategies is an asset. In addition to curriculum development, this position requires participation in assurance of learning (AOL) and departmental service activities.

We seek a candidate having graduate coursework, research, and/or professional experience demonstrating the ability to teach our operations/supply chain management course called Ethical Sourcing, People, and the Planet; additionally, the ability to teach our strategy capstone course called Planning & Implementation for Social Entrepreneurship, and/or our Financing Social Entrepreneurship course is highly desirable.
