POSITION BACKGROUND:
Orange Coast College (OCC) is seeking a full-time, equity-minded, tenure-track faculty member in History commencing with the 2019 fall semester. The primary teaching assignment involves all areas of History. This assignment also includes curriculum and program development, participation in department, division, college committees, and participatory governance activities; assuming leadership roles both within the department and in the institution as a whole; collaboration across disciplines and the leveraging of student support resources; and participation in ongoing professional development.
 
The assignment may be day, evening, weekend, online, hybrid, or off campus and is subject to change as needed. The ideal candidate for this position embraces the overall mission of Orange Coast College and the Coast Community College District, with a clear, focused commitment to supporting individualized student and employee goals through the work of History.
 
The History Department shares OCC's commitment to equitable outcomes; inclusive practices; and racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity. Ideal candidates for this position share OCC's devotion to educating and improving the lives of our representative student, employee, and community populations. We currently enroll 21,498 students, the majority of whom are from racially minoritized populations: 35% of OCC's students are Latinx, 2% are African-American, 23% are Asian, fewer than 1% are Native American, 31% are White, and 6% identify as multiracial. Faculty have the opportunity to enhance their classroom methods during two professional development days during the academic year, which include learning sessions like "Digital Accessibility", "Basic Skills: Helping students help themselves" and "Taking a skills-based approach to teaching college students" and new faculty also receive training monthly as a cohort in the New Faculty Academy. Student-centered activities that support OCC's mission include campus-wide student success projects funded by the Office of Student Equity; partnerships with local Hispanic-serving four year institutions; active programs that work to improve the academic achievement of racially minoritized and/or disenfranchised students, such as PUENTE and UMOJA; Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) and Disabled Student Program and Services (DSPS).

The Social & Behavioral Sciences Division supports the Mission of Orange Coast College by providing opportunities to our students to delve into humanistic study; to help better understand humankind in its societal and behavioral context. In an age of rapid change, this division at OCC attempts to prepare its students with content and theories of the social, cultural, and other life-conditions that make change likely, unlikely, predictable, or inevitable. The Division of Social & Behavioral Sciences values the study of a broad range of disciplines such as Anthropology, Economics, Ethnic Studies, Gender Studies, Geography, Global Studies, History, Humanities, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology. All of these disciplines combine to provide glimpses into human beings with all their diversity and uniqueness.
