Detailed Job Description

Bring your expertise, spirit for innovation and passion for teaching to Anne Arundel Community College.

With learning as its central mission, Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) has responded to the needs of a diverse community for more than 50 years by offering high quality, affordable and accessible learning opportunities. Established in 1961, AACC is a fully-accredited, public two-year institution that offers national and regional studies that can lead to a degree or certificate, industry credential, transfer to a four-year institution, or career enhancement, personal enrichment and lifelong learning. The college's nationally recognized and award-winning programs have helped about 50,000 students annually achieve their academic, professional and personal goals.

Recently, the college's seat on the League for Innovation in Community College's board of directors - one of only 18 community colleges in the nation - was reaffirmed. A member of this elite organization since 2004, AACC was unanimously selected for its innovative programs and services, commitment to learning-centered education and dedication to serving students and the community. In 2009, AACC launched Student Success 2020, a college-wide call to action and strategic plan to help more of its students be more successful in achieving their educational goals.

During the summer of 2012, the college opened the Center for Cyber and Professional Training in Hanover which houses 13 specialized labs, a testing center and faculty support space. Also in 2012, AACC reopened its renovated and expanded Andrew G. Truxal Library with a focus on learning and success. The beautiful award-winning facility recently earned a LEED Gold Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, along with other architectural awards.

Located in Anne Arundel County in Maryland near historic Annapolis, home to the U.S. Naval Academy, AACC is conveniently located just minutes from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and downtown Baltimore and is not far from Washington, D.C. Also bordering the beautiful Chesapeake Bay, the county has 437 miles of waterfront.

AACC is committed to supporting and sustaining a diverse and inclusive educational environment. Diversity is not merely a goal but a value that is embedded throughout the institution in multiple areas including (but not limited to): learning, teaching, student development, institutional functioning, and engagement in partnerships with the local and global community.

Faculty members are expected to serve on department and college committees, advise students, engage in professional development activities and participate in community and business partnerships, research and grants. They should be prepared to use technology and learning outcomes assessment to enhance classroom teaching and show commitment to innovation, teaching excellence, and a teaching/learning focus. College teaching experience is preferred.
