  1. Anyone think there's some irony in the phrase: "recruiting and retaining a diverse faculty" when these are two year positions?

    1. True, but that last paragraph is just institutional boilerplate that every position description needs to include.

  2. They advertised for the visiting position last year as well. They do seem to have a recruitment/retention problem.
