Position description

Part time non-tenure track lectureships with the Public Service Minor at Thurgood Marshall College, UC San Diego, will be available for the 2022-2023 academic year. Instructors will teach two or more sections of TMC 15: Public Service in America, a required course for the Public Service Minor. Public Service in America is designed to study, discuss, and analyze the history and current role of public service in the United States. Students will be introduced to the different roles held by the three sectors of the American economic structure (government, business, and nonprofit/public service) with opportunity to provide a critical analysis of those roles within American society.

*Teaching evaluations may be requested if the applicant is selected as a top candidate.

Sponsored by Thurgood Marshall College, the Public Service minor encourages all UC San Diego students to understand the history and practices of public service. By further developing the civic skills and experiences of the student, the Public Service minor offers a service-learning experience through academic and practicum-based means of civic engagement.

With coursework and opportunities focused on the history, emergence, and importance of public service work, students in the minor will obtain valuable experience and a deeper understanding of the field.

Through the pursuit of the minor, students will be able to supplement their educational careers with a service-learning experience that offers a unique avenue of growth in preparation for the future.
