Faculty Recruitment

Welcome to Winthrop

Winthrop University employs a diverse and able faculty and professional staff of national caliber and supports their work as effective teachers, scholars, researchers, practitioners, and creative artists. Small class sizes and an emphasis on high-impact practices such as active learning, common intellectual experiences, undergraduate research, and global learning create an atmosphere where faculty have the opportunity to provide their students with close mentorship and individual attention.

Founded in 1886, Winthrop offers its students an educational experience that blends liberal arts, professional programs, global awareness, and civic engagement. Today, more than 4,400 undergraduate and 1,000 graduate students are enrolled at Winthrop. Our students' achievements, character, and resiliency can be seen in the classroom in their drive to learn and succeed as well as in their demonstration of service to others. While they arrive on campus from diverse cultural, geographic, social, and economic backgrounds, Winthrop students share a common sense of community and purpose.

In surveys, focus groups, and other forms of feedback, a theme that emerges time and again among Winthrop students, alumni, prospective students, and employees is an appreciation of the University's inclusive environment and sense of community. Winthrop University actively seeks to hire faculty and staff who share our commitment to service, excellence, diversity, and community and who will help to enrich the campus culture and the Winthrop experience for their students and colleagues.
