WCCCSA seeks enthusiastic and creative faculty who can demonstrate a history of effectiveness in their instructional discipline and the ability to successfully forward student participation and academic progress. Interested instructors need strong interpersonal communication skills and a keen awareness of the realities of providing instruction to US community college students overseas. A strong foundation in intercultural awareness/communication, student development, and cross-cultural adjustment is required to teach on a WCCCSA program.
Typically we cover with full enrollment for faculty-Lodging, local transportation, insurance, and a roundtrip airfare stipend. Part-time and full-time faculty are welcome to apply. All faculty applicants must be approved by their home institution. Please note programs run based on minimum enrollment numbers and are not guaranteed to run until after application deadline.
Faculty applicants are evaluated on the following criteria:
1. Relevance of the proposed course to its respective environment
2. Applicability of proposed courses to general education distribution requirements
3. Record of college-level teaching excellence with proposed or similar courses
4. Previous international education experience and student service experience
5. Record of collegial cooperation and interdisciplinary instruction
Important: To apply to teach on a program, instructors applying must teach at a member school. A list of member schools and campus contacts can be found here: Member Schools.
