This week, I’m sharing a job opening for a teaching position in the University of Duluth, USA:
“The Cultural Entrepreneurship Program at the University of Minnesota Duluth is growing and hiring faculty to start in August 2016.
You may know that our program is one of the first undergraduate degree program in the United States and our faculty is deeply engaged in the scholarship of this emerging field of study. It is an interdisciplinary program combining entrepreneurial ideas with the intellectual rigor and expertise of the Liberal Arts. We are dedicated to integrating liberal education, research, creative activity and public engagement preparing students to become life-long learners and globally engaged citizens. Since its launch in 2013, the program has made significant progress in developing an ecosystem integrating with local economic development initiatives. Our vision is to be the leading program of Cultural and Creative Entrepreneurship in North America in both educating Liberal Arts students to meet their goals, as well as at shaping the future of this field. We hope some of you will consider applying and help us spread the word.”
