Required Language for Ads + Announcements
The College requires that departments add the following statement to all advertisements:
"Emmanuel College seeks to create a working and learning environment that reflect the society and community in which we are located, and we actively encourage candidates of all backgrounds to apply."
Such proactive language conveys a level of commitment beyond that required by regulation and tells potential applicants that the College values diversity. Proactive language can be included as a specific job qualification or as a summary statement at the end of job announcements. Examples of specific job qualifications and summary statements include the following:
- Candidates should describe how multicultural issues have been or will be brought into course.
- The College is committed to building a culturally diverse educational environment. Applicants are requested to include in their cover letter information about how they will further this goal.
- Candidates should describe previous activities mentoring members of underrepresented groups.
- Applicants are expected to describe in their letter of intent how their scholarship contributes to diverse communities.
- The College is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching and/or service.
- Successful candidates must be committed to working with diverse student and community population.
