TO: Tenure-Track Faculty in the College of Liberal Arts
FR: Kenneth Fuld, Dean
RE: Participation in the UNH London Program, 2014-2015
We are now inviting applications from tenured members of the College of Liberal Arts faculty who wish to serve as the resident Director of the UNH Program in London at Regent's College during the 2014-2015 academic year.
The assignment includes teaching three courses during the academic year at Regent's College (two in the fall semester and one in the spring) and serving as resident advisor to the UNH students who participate in the Program. The courses taught will need to be negotiated with the Academic Dean of Regent's College and incorporated into its liberal arts curriculum.
During the period of the directorship, the faculty member will continue to receive his or her UNH salary and benefits. The London Program will pay for one round-trip air fare to and from London. The UNH faculty member will live at a small apartment in Regent's College, the rent for which will be paid by the London Program. Fees for utilities are included with the rent, but the Director must pay for phone, food and normal living expenses. A modest budget is also provided to support group activities, and the Director will be expected to organize a small number of cultural and social activities for students each semester. In the academic year preceding residence in London the prospective Director is expected to participate in the recruitment and selection of students for the Program. Approximately 25 UNH students participate in the Program each fall semester; in the spring semester that group is typically 40 students.
Interested faculty members should submit the following documentation to me in one complete package:
• A letter stating reasons for wanting to participate in the Program and particularly how this opportunity will contribute to the faculty member's professional development,
• A current cv,
• A supporting letter from the department chair. (The chair's letter should comment on the faculty member's strengths as a teacher and advisor of students.)
Please be aware the appointment cannot be taken during a sabbatical.
A small committee will review the applications, and the selection will be made in March 2013. Members of the faculty who are considering this possibility may meet with Ted Kirkpatrick, Associate Dean, should they have questions about this opportunity.
The deadline for receipt of applications is February 25, 2013.
