Information for Faculty Applicants

Loyola University Maryland seeks a diverse faculty of excellent teachers and productive scholars who are committed to the mission of the University.

At an appropriate stage in the search process, applicants for faculty positions are asked to review the material related to our Jesuit mission and core values and write a brief essay addressing the ways they could contribute to this mission. Applicants are free to structure their essays as they deem appropriate. The following topics are provided to stimulate the applicant's thinking: the relationship between the applicant's philosophy of teaching, the liberal arts and the Jesuit educational mission; the ways in which the applicant's religious identity shapes his/her teaching, interaction with students, or research in relationship to the Jesuit educational mission; the extent to which the applicant includes multicultural themes, ethical issues, social justice, or service learning in his/her teaching or research in relationship to the Jesuit educational mission.

The University has a strong faculty development program, supported by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs and a competitive benefits package.
