Eugene Lang College, the undergraduate liberal arts division of The New School, invites applications from qualified scholars and practitioners for part-time faculty positions teaching hybrid theory/practice courses in Code as a Liberal Art, a critical computer science program that offers hands-on coding instruction within an arts, humanities, and social sciences curriculum.
At Lang, social justice is the ethical core of a liberal arts education. The college is committed to ensuring an equitable, inclusive, and socially just environment for our students, staff, and faculty. That commitment requires recruiting students, staff, and faculty who reflect the diversity of thought, experiences, and identities of our global society.
