Job Description:

The Bellarmine University Honors Program is seeking a part-time instructor to teach a community-engaged first-year Honors seminar themed around food and food justice for the fall 2022 semester (8/25/2022 to 12/15/2022). At Bellarmine, first-year seminars are designed to engage students, at the start of their university lives, in serious academic inquiry with an interdisciplinary focus. Honors sections of these seminars seek to empower students in the program to maximize their talents and take ownership over their own learning by incorporating one or more high-impact educational practices, including but not limited to community-engaged or other experiential learning.

This particular section of IDC 101H will meet once a week on campus, and once a week at an off-campus site in West Louisville's Portland neighborhood where students and the instructor will collaborate with middle school students at Mighty Oak Academy by working together in a greenhouse. The goal is to provide the Mighty Oak Academy and Bellarmine Honors students opportunities to learn about food and food-related issues alongside each other while continuing to cultivate a reciprocal relationship with this valued community partner.

On-campus meetings will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:05-4:20 in CNHH 106. Off-campus meetings will take place during class time (on days determined by the instructor) at Mighty Oak Academy (344 N 26th St., Louisville, KY 40212.)
