The successful candidate will be an equity-minded individual dedicated to collaborating with faculty, classified staff, administration, students, and community partners who are also committed to closing equity gaps. An equity-minded individual is a person who already does or has demonstrated the desire to:

Hold ourselves accountable as educators for closing equity gaps and engaging in equitable practices; Reframe inequities as a problem of practice and view the elimination of inequities as an individual and collective responsibility; Implement positive race-consciousness and embrace human difference; Reflect on institutional and teaching practices and make them more culturally responsive; and Collaborate with colleagues on equity-related initiatives.

Monterey Peninsula College seeks employees who value mentorship and working in a collegial, collaborative environment, guided by a commitment to helping all students achieve their educational or career goals.
