Position title
Criminal Justice Assistant Professor



Community College of Denver is seeking individuals with demonstrated commitment to creating an inclusive learning and work environment.  CCD values the ability to work effectively with students, families, faculty, instructors and staff of diverse backgrounds.




This position reports directly to the Chair of Criminal Justice within the Center for Career & Technical Education and works collaboratively with other discipline faculty. The Dean for the Center for Career & Technical Education serves as this position’s second-level supervisor.


The primary purpose of the Criminal Justice Assistant Professor will be to teach introductory and intermediate Criminal Justice courses. The Criminal Justice Assistant Professor will also demonstrate leadership within the department, center, and college, respectively.


Duties and Responsibilities




Primary teaching duties will be in introductory and intermediate Criminal Justice courses.  A full course load is defined as 15 credit hours per semester, with alternative assignments for administrative and related duties possible. Faculty must command strong teaching skills and be able to engage students using traditional, nontraditional and innovative methods of instruction, including the use of technology, while teaching in a curriculum grounded in core values of critical thinking, respect, competence, professional development, and ethical responsibility. A commitment to student academic success that goes beyond the classroom is essential, as are effective interpersonal, leadership, and organizational skills.



In addition to teaching, faculty in this position will work collaboratively with other Criminal Justice faculty to develop and modify curriculum and engage in other departmental initiatives and responsibilities, including efforts to maintain departmental coherence across CCD’s many instructional venues (e.g., online, community campuses, and Pre-Collegiate programs), textbook selection, and professional development of adjunct instructors. Other duties may include advising students on programs and degree planning and evaluating Criminal Justice assessment and placement artifacts. All full-time faculty are also expected to provide service to the college.


After gaining more experience, full-time faculty may be expected to share in broader department coordination duties on a collaborative basis. These administrative duties may include course scheduling and staffing, budgeting, hiring and supervising of adjunct instructors, resolving and mediating instructor/student disputes, mentoring adjunct instructors, or taking on the role of department Chair.


It is the expectation of the college that faculty will continue to be active scholars in their chosen field. They should continue to pursue their academic growth by taking formal academic courses or by attending conferences and workshops and otherwise reading, exploring and enriching their knowledge of the developments in the field of Criminal Justice.

Faculty should also be a leader in the community. Faculty often serve as liaisons on local boards or commissions, often providing valuable leadership to the community as a whole.
