Faculty Positions

Faculty Curriculum Vita Bank


While the University Center itself does NOT hire any faculty, we are sometimes asked by our member institutions to assist them in identifying local candidates for adjunct teaching opportunities in Lake County. To that end, we have established a Faculty Curriculum Vita Bank and are soliciting curriculum vitae from experienced college and university instructors. If you are interested in teaching in programs offered through the University Center, please send a cover letter identifying the courses and/or subject areas you would like to teach and a copy of your curriculum vita. Current letters of recommendation or teaching evaluations would also be welcome. Our member institutions have indicated a preference for candidates with doctoral degrees and a minimum expectation of a graduate degree. We prefer to receive your material by email to allow ready forwarding to member institutions.

To Apply:

To add your credentials to the Faculty Curriculum Vita Bank, send information to:
Hilary Ward Schnadt
Associate Dean for Academic Services & Programs
University Center of Lake County Faculty Bank

Grayslake, IL 60030

Please note that a submission to this Faculty Curriculum Vita Bank constitutes a declaration that you are willing to be considered for future openings but does not constitute application for any specific opening. Electronic submissions are encouraged to expedite ready forwarding to member institutions.
