Princeton University’s Program for Community College Engagement invites applications for Teaching Transfer Associates to teach, advise, and conduct outreach at a community college, with the goal of strengthening connections between Princeton and the host community college and increasing the number of students at that community college who transfer to strong four-year institutions. For the teaching portion of the appointment, associates will primarily teach courses for the community college; one Princeton-accredited course will also be taught by each associate as part of their appointment and a concurrent lecturer appointment with the Office of the Dean of the Faculty at Princeton will be made for that course. Onboarding and orientation to the program will occur in the summer period prior to the start of fall-term courses at the community college. The appointment is for 12 months, expected to span the period of July 1 through June 30, with mandatory orientation and curriculum development activities in the summer period prior to the fall term as well as program learning and assessment activities at the conclusion of the spring term. Appointments may be renewable twice for a total of three academic years of appointment. Reappointed associates may be called upon to teach summer courses on Princeton’s campus.

Application should include a current CV, a cover letter reflecting on your interest in and preparation for teaching and advising in this program, and a brief document (no longer than one page) that lists the range and types of community college courses you might teach at the host community college. While we may partner with up to three NJ community colleges in the 2024-5 academic year, applicants are encouraged to consult the Mercer County Community College course catalog as an example to help identify a range of courses that you might teach.
