The property
The College of Liberal Arts at Colorado State University is searching for a Chair of the Ethnic Studies Department who is ready to be part of an innovative department that is in the process of integrating Ethnic Studies and Women and Gender Studies. We seek a visionary individual with the ability to recommend, implement, and innovate the philosophy and mission of this interdisciplinary department where feminisms of color are centered. A well-positioned applicant will operate out of frameworks that include intersectionality, transnationalism, engaged scholarship, and anti-oppression research methodologies that are grounded in activism and advocacy. Successful applicants are expected to build upon our commitment to interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching through critical analysis of contemporary issues of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, settler colonialism, and disability. This is a tenure-track faculty position. The Chair is a 12-month appointment targeted to start July 1, 2022 with an expected length of five years (renewable, pending successful performance). The successful candidate will teach one course per academic year (fall or spring semester) while chair.
The posted salary is based on a 12-month appointment. Should the Chair position end, assuming satisfactory performance, the appointment will return to a 9-month tenured faculty appointment in the Department of Ethnic Studies at their pro-rated 9-month salary.
The Ethnic Studies Department critically examines the interlocking forces of domination that are rooted in socially constructed categories of gender, sexuality, class, race, ethnicity and disability. Our faculty and researchers are committed to theoretical, empirical, qualitative, textual, and community‐based research, pedagogy, service, and outreach. Utilizing interdisciplinary, international, and comparative approaches, we challenge paradigms that systematically marginalize the experiences of diverse populations. In doing so, we bring to bear issues of power, privilege, and social justice pertinent to aggrieved groups in the United States and abroad. We are especially committed to nurturing civic‐minded and culturally informed students who strive to strengthen the communities in which they reside. In support of the land‐ grant mission of Colorado State University, the Department engages with communities on and off campus in order to affect meaningful change in public policy and social life.

The NAISA logo was designed by Jonathan Thunder, a Red Lake Ojibwe painter and digital artist from Minnesota. NAISA members inspired by canoe traditions among their own people sent examples to Thunder, who designed the logo with advice from the NAISA Council. The color scheme was chosen to signify those Indigenous peoples who are more land-based and do not have canoe traditions.
