Job Title: Adjunct Faculty

Company/Organization: Urban Studies and Planning ProgramUniversity of Maryland, College Park

Salary: TBD

Contact Info: UMD Website

Position Description / How to Apply:

The graduate Urban Studies and Planning program at the University of Maryland in College Park is interested in generally expanding its roster of candidates for adjunct faculty appointments.  We know there is a rich array of planning expertise in our region and we want to tap into it. We have always drawn from this pool and we want to update our knowledge of who is out there that is both qualified and interested in helping to educate the next generation of planners. We are therefore soliciting letters of interest in adjunct teaching from APA membership.

Areas of possible adjunct teaching include courses in Land Use Planning, The Planning Process and planning studios.  Our online course thumbnails give a brief description of these and other classes. We are, however, open to interest in other course topics if you feel you can contribute. We are also interested in people who are experts in certain areas (e.g. creative placemaking, data visualization, urban design, environmental specialties etc.) and could give specific lectures as opposed to delivering an entire course. Classes are held in the evenings at either a 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm slot or a 7 pm – 9:30 pm slot on Mondays through Thursdays. Class sizes can vary between 5 and 25 students. Summer sessions are also options for classes or studios.

Please send a letter that clearly but concisely explains your interest, relevant experience and expertise, publications and any prior teaching experience and tell us about your availability. Include a current CV. We expect to interview several people during the summer.  We have no timetable of actual teaching slots. This is a broad outreach effort.

Send your letters by July 29 or earlier to Uri Avin FAICP of the National Center for Smart Growth at: and include Adjunct Faculty in your email title.
