Description:
Saint Mary's College invites applications and nominations for a 17 month Visiting Faculty Member in the Counseling Department in the College's Kalmanovitz School of Education beginning in February 2021 and ending June 31, 2022. The work is collegial in a highly collaborative and culturally diverse campus environment. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the mission of the College, which is informed, animated, and expressed through its Catholic, Lasallian, and Liberal Arts traditions.

The Kalmanovitz School of Education is a student-centered learning community that inspires innovation in counseling, education, and leadership. Through the practice of shared inquiry, active and collaborative learning, and learning through service to society, we empower our students to deliver excellence and lead change according to the principles of social justice. The school is known for partnerships emphasizing community engagement, action research, and community-based research, and it is developing demonstrable strength in environmental literacy, Lasallian education, and urban education.

The Counseling Department offers a Master of Arts in Counseling with seven specializations: Career Counseling, College Student Services, General, Marriage and Family Therapy/Professional Clinical Counseling (MFT/PCC), Higher Education and Student Affairs (HESA), Higher Education and Student Affairs / Professional Clinical Counseling (HESA/PCC), School Counseling, and School Psychology. Students may complete more than one specialization by taking additional courses and completing all required field placement experiences.

The Counseling Department provides a supportive learning environment that fosters students' personal growth and wellness, as well as professional development as counselors. Faculty members are committed to a holistic, multicultural approach to counseling, emphasizing the systemic interconnection among the psychological, physical, spiritual, and socio-cultural dimensions of our lives. Ultimately, students integrate academic knowledge and clinical experience with their own quality of being to become authentic, competent helping professionals.

The Counseling Department is a year-round program, with a 14-15 week fall semester, 5-week January Term, 14-15 week spring semester, and a 6-8 week summer term. Full-time faculty members are assigned courses during the traditional 9-month academic year with summer term courses taught primarily by part-time faculty. To meet the needs of professional working adults, classes are offered in the late afternoons and evenings, with some Saturday courses/sessions.
