Recruitment of Faculty

As a university community that welcomes all people regardless of their gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, disability or country of origin, it is the policy of the teacher education program to actively recruit faculty members who reflect our global society. As an institution and teacher preparation program, faculty and staff engage in planned activities and strategies that are focused on increasing a student and faculty body that includes individuals of ethnic/racial minorities, diverse religious affiliations, differing sexual orientation, all genders, persons with disabilities, individuals across all age groups, and individuals from various socio-economic backgrounds.

The teacher education program has initiated these objectives as a way to follow through on our faculty recruitment initiatives when looking to fill full-time and adjunct positions:

  • Use various communication and social networking technologies to encourage interest and applications.
  • Initiate a review of all public relations documents that feature diverse students, faculty, and staff in the teacher education program and on our campus.
  • Implement a continuous review of all activities and strategies used to attract and retain a diverse faculty.
  • Partner with regional school districts and other professional organizations to encourage interest in teaching in the teacher education program.
  • Work with university administration to engage in strategies that help to recruit a diverse teacher education faculty.

Experience Matters

Education students enrolled in Lakeland's traditional program on the main campus have the ability to gain 12-18 months of full-time work experience and academic credit for their work through our Cooperative Education program. A combination of scholarships and wages will help significantly reduce or eliminate post-graduation debt.
