The Office of Education Abroad in the Office of International Programs invites interested, tenured faculty to apply to serve as a Resident Faculty Director for our longstanding exchange program with Kingston University London in Kingston-upon-Thames, a Royal Borough of London. Applications are being accepted for Academic Years 2020-2021 and 2021-2022
The position requires collaboration with the Office of Education Abroad in the recruitment, advising and orientation of students for the exchange program. While at Kingston, faculty are expected to advise, assist, and plan cultural visits for UNC Charlotte students. In addition to working with our students, faculty members normally teach one course at Kingston University as well as utilize the London area’s resources to do pertinent research in their field, as appropriate. Lastly, it is expected that the faculty member collaborate closely with the Office of International Programs to advance the internationalization efforts of the institution as well as of her/his department.
Upon their return to UNC Charlotte, resident directors are expected to participate in international education advocacy activities planned by OIP to support and enhance our campus’ internationalization dimension. This support will be to serve as an ongoing international education advocate in the returned resident director’s home department and college.
