The Department of Social Work at St. Catherine University invites applications for potential Adjunct positions. Each semester there may be opportunities for us to hire adjunct faculty as our current faculty go on sabbatical or go on leave or have unexpected emergencies. When that happens, we assess what resources we need to ensure our students have a rich academic experience.

The Department of Social Work is part of the Henrietta Schmoll School of Health. We prepare students for critically reflective practice to use social work knowledge, values, and skills to demonstrate the intrinsic value of all humankind in a unified purpose to serve those in need and promote social justice and human rights. Our faculty work collaboratively to support students who are passionate about social justice and plan to use their education and training to lead and influence positive change in their communities.

Application instructions for FACULTY

Visit St. Kate Careers to apply. Three references and successful completion of a background check will be required for employment. Applications will be considered as adjunct needs arise.

Given the way campus life inherently puts people in close proximity to each other, including residence and dining halls, classrooms, and gatherings, the University has determined that a vaccination requirement is the best way to keep our community safe and prevent potential outbreaks as we return to more regular, in-person operations. St. Catherine University is requiring all students, faculty (including adjuncts contracted for the fall semester and beyond), staff, and residents age 12 and older to complete their COVID -19 vaccination series unless the University approves a medical or religious accommodation or other accommodation/exemption as required by applicable law. New employees must submit vaccination documentation or be approved for an exemption/accommodation before beginning work. For more information, visit stkate.edu/coronavirus-info/vaccine .
