Retirement (No Employer Match) TIAA

If you are interested in teaching in a university setting, it can be helpful to gain experience as an adjunct instructor. Many of our adjunct instructors hold a full-time career elsewhere, and choose to teach in our evening, weekend, and online programs so that they may have the opportunity to teach students.

Adjunct Instructors are hired to teach on a per course basis. Each academic term may present the need to hire new or additional adjunct instructors. 

Ottawa University is actively seeking to hire Adjunct Instructors to develop and instruct on-ground, face-to-face courses specifically for the Executive MBA Information Technology Program at its Overland Park, KS campus location.

These courses are specifically designed for international students and take place on the Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays every 8 weeks of the term with follow-up using the Blackboard learning management system.  Significant experience in the Business Management and IT fields as well as experience teaching at the graduate level are required. 

 Minimum qualifications include:

  • Earned Graduate Degree with minimum 15-18 graduate credit hours in the content area from a regionally accredited institution.
  • Five years of post-graduate professional experience within the content area.
  • Exceptional communication and writing skills with strong attention to detail.
Additional preferences:
  • Earned Doctoral Degree in related field from a regionally accredited institution is preferred.
  • Knowledge of current relevant IT practices and trends in the corporate setting.
  • Blackboard or equivalent Learning Management System (LMS) experience.
  • Teaching experience within the content area.

A completed employment application is required for each position you wish to apply.  Candidates should attach a cover letter, resume, and the names of three professional references as a part of this application for employment. 

Ottawa University celebrates and prizes the diversity of its students, faculty, staff and Board of Trustees. In keeping with its Mission Statement, the University is called to actively foster an environment of awareness, appreciation, and intentional inclusivity. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from members of underrepresented groups and strongly encourage them to apply.
