The College of Professional Studies at Northeastern University’s innovative first-year college program, Foundation Year, addresses the issue of college persistence by helping students transition from high school to college and adjust to the expectations of college work and culture. The model integrates a full-year of college level, credit-bearing courses with career exploration and social and academic preparedness in a full day schedule. Students in the cohort program pursue a rigorous college curriculum, receive wrap-around student support, and benefit from an experiential approach to learning. The ten-month program is designed to fulfill the first year course requirements of either an associate’s or bachelor’s degree.
The College seeks a non-tenure track faculty who will teach a full-time load with a focus on first-year Mathematics courses, such as College Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Statistics, and Programming. The position works closely with a team of full-time program faculty and student advising staff dedicated to the academic and personal achievement of the cohort of students. Actual course load may vary with other responsibilities associated with advising or other tasks associated with the program. Responsibilities include: ensure a quality, high-level experience for students, especially students entering college with a wide range of math experience and proficiency; evaluate course content and materials and ensure appropriate fit with program objectives; continuously review curriculum and specific course content to ensure currency; advise and mentor students; and provide content related support to students.


This position requires a commitment to teaching excellence and demonstrated success teaching underprepared and first generation college students. A Master’s degree appropriate to teaching mathematics is required and a terminal degree is preferred. The ideal candidate would have proven success teaching math in innovative and engaging ways that re­engage students who have traditionally struggled with math and may have skill gaps.
