The mathematics full-time position at the CCA that reports to the Mathematics Department Chair. We are seeking candidates that have the desire and ability to create a classroom culture that positively impacts and engages students who are minoritized in mathematics. The successful candidate will be expected to teach students from the developmental level through the Calculus sequence, with a focus on Mathematics for Liberal Arts and Statistics. The successful candidate will enjoy a high degree of autonomy in making classroom and work plan decisions, but is expected to promote the environment of collaboration, support, and shared leadership of the department and the college. We are seeking talented candidates who value and support the department and college initiatives described below
About the Mathematics Department:
The Mathematics Department at the Community College of Aurora is comprised of highly motivated and achieving faculty who are passionate about the success of all students. We are currently in the process of implementing four major initiatives, each of which will play a major role in determining the philosophy and direction of the department over the next few years.
The first major initiative is actively working to achieve equally high outcomes for all students, particularly in regards to race and ethnicity. Current math faculty have received mentoring on how to deconstruct their individual practices and policies to determine the impact these may have on inequitable outcomes for students when disaggregated by race/ethnicity.
The second major initiative is the continued work to increase the number of students completing their college-level math requirement. Our focus has been to redesign the developmental math sequence and to implement a co-requisite enrollment model to provide students with greater access to their college-level math courses while being able to support the success of these students at the same level as students who directly test into a college-level math course.
The third major initiative is to provide students guided pathways to completion of a degree or certificate on two, three, or four year tracks. Mathematics courses are strategically scheduled to allow students to take the course that will be most beneficial to their degree.
The fourth major initiative is to provide quality concurrent enrollment math courses in local area high schools. We see concurrent enrollment and the ASCENT program as providing a significant and important opportunity for students historically prohibited/discouraged from both pursuing and completing college education.
With each of these initiatives, our approach has been to work in a collaborative way that includes the voices of all those who have a stake in the outcome: students, full-time faculty and instructors, developmental and college-level faculty, other academic departments, advising, and local public school districts. We value working in an environment of collaboration, support, and shared leadership of the department and the college.
