The St. Catherine University Initial Licensure Program for Elementary Education invites applications for Adjunct Lecturer positions for the 2022-2023 spring term.

We offer our K-6 licensure program at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Social Justice is a core principle embedded in education courses. Addressing the achievement gap and inequities in K-12 schools is essential to the mission of social justice for educators. St. Kate's teacher candidates will be challenged throughout the program to reflect upon ways they can implement culturally sustaining teaching practices and disrupt inequities in school systems and classrooms.

Every semester we may have opportunities for adjuncts to join us as we educate women to lead and influence .

  • Comply with all PELSB accreditation standards
  • Consistent with the university's Catholic identity, its commitment to women, diversity, inclusion, social justice, and dedication to a liberal arts-based curriculum, faculty are expected to manifest these themes in their teaching and practice experiences.

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 .
