Discipline Specific Required Qualifications
All faculty at UTRGV are required to exhibit a commitment to Teaching
Excellence. Candidates must show experience and qualifications that meet SACS-
COC and other departmental/college accreditation requirements.
Teaching: The primary responsibility of Lecturers considered for this position
will be teaching and collaborating with colleagues to enhance student success
in co-requisite courses. Co-requisite mathematics courses are often paired
with another math course. In other words, students will take both the
prerequisite and the regular course in the same semester. Lecturers are
expected to: 1) implement evidence-based teaching and learning strategies in
the classroom and to document their impact to increase the chances for success
of first-year college students who are not yet considered college-ready; 2)
use effective activities/pedagogy in the classroom to engage students,
cultivate thinking skills, and motivate interest in the subject; and 3)
integrate innovative technology and customized learning to maximize student
success. Given that UTRGV is a distributed university, faculty may be required
to teach online or hybrid courses or teach at different locations.
Service and Scholarship: Although the primary obligation of lecturers is to
teach, service to the university and community may be a part of the faculty
members' responsibilities. This position does not provide any formal
expectation and/or support for scholarship activities. However, UTRGV
encourages all faculty, including Lecturers, to engage in scholarship.
Ph.D. or terminal degree in the field of study with extensive teaching
experience and documented teaching effectiveness at a university or college
UTRGV seeks to increase the representation of historically underrepresented
faculty in the sciences, including underrepresented minority and women

innovative and accessible educational environment. As a federally designated
Hispanic Serving Institution, UTRGV is committed to preparing its students to
succeed, contribute and excel in an increasingly diverse, global, and
interconnected world, and seeks faculty who are prepared to help in this goal.
