A series of retirements puts our Musical Theatre program in a period of transition, providing an extraordinary opportunity for a highly motivated leader to develop and implement a vision of training for the musical theatre performing artist in the 21st century. The primary professional responsibilities of this instructional faculty member are: teaching undergraduate courses in musical theatre; directing, choreographing and/or performing (specific to the expertise of the candidate) in Mainstage productions, Studio Series, showcases, and workshop productions of musicals, as part of the regular assignment; and providing leadership and vision in the area through curriculum and policy development, student performance and course assessments. In addition, faculty responsibilities include advising students, maintaining office hours, recruitment of a diverse population of students and faculty (both adjunct and full-time), service in Department, College, University, and system-wide committees, and working collaboratively and productively with colleagues.

Positive tenure and promotion decisions require excellent teaching; an active and successful program of scholarly research and/or creative activities in the discipline; and strong leadership contributions to Department, College and University committees and to external professional organizations that serve the broader disciplinary community.

  • California State University, Fullerton is a minority-serving institution, and an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer with a strong commitment to increasing the diversity of the campus community and the curriculum, and fostering an inclusive environment within which students, staff, administrators and faculty thrive. Candidates who can contribute to this goal through their teaching, research, advising, and other activities are encouraged to identify their strengths and experiences in this area. Individuals advancing the University’s strategic diversity goals and those from groups whose underrepresentation in the American professoriate has been severe and longstanding are particularly encouraged to apply.
