Position Details
The African American and Africana Studies (AAAS) program in the Department of Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies occasionally has openings for part-time, temporary adjunct instructors.

Established in 2018, the School of Interdisciplinary Studies connects experts, ideas, and communities to promote empathy, respect, and social justice. Our vision is to transform the TCU community through diversity, equity, and inclusion; to enable scholarly and radical collaborations; and to model deep, integrated learning that connects TCU’s academic disciplines, faculty, and students to our broader communities. The School offers bachelor’s degrees and graduate certificates in Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies and Women and Gender Studies; a bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Inquiry; and undergraduate minors in CRES, WGST, African American and Africana Studies, and Latinx Studies. The School also oversees the student success program University Life, the Intensive English Program, and the IdeaFactory, an innovation hub that provides workshops and courses on human-centered design.

University & Fort Worth Description

Founded in 1873, Texas Christian University sits on 299 acres nestled in a primarily residential part of Fort Worth, just minutes away from downtown. The University includes eight schools and colleges, in addition to the John V. Roach Honors College and the new TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine, which is operated in collaboration with the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth.

Currently, TCU enrolls 9,474 undergraduates and 1,490 graduate students. Twenty-six percent of students self-identify as a member of a minority group, 5 percent are international students, and 42 percent are from out-of-state. Our students are supported by more than 2,200 faculty and staff. The University has more than 700 full-time faculty members, 87 percent of whom hold a terminal degree. For nine consecutive years, TCU has been selected as one of the Great Colleges to Work For®.

At TCU, diversity, equity and inclusion are an educational imperative that is tied directly to our University mission and vision. For the second consecutive year, TCU has earned the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award, which highlights our ongoing commitment to build a comprehensive DEI strategy that aligns with our core values and to create a campus culture where everyone is respected and feels included. Among TCU’s actions this year was approving a resolution to adopt DEI into its core curriculum.


Like TCU, Fort Worth has the approachable, friendly charm of a smaller town, but offers the amenities, cultural activities, diversity and unique personality of a much larger city. Fort Worth, Texas, is the 13th largest city in the United States with an ever-growing population nearing 1 million. Fort Worth is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, the fourth largest metropolitan area in the United States, and the number 1 tourist destination in Texas. In 2018, ranked Fort Worth the 7th most affordable city to live and work in the United States and U.S. News and World Report named Fort Worth one of the Best Places to Live. Fort Worth, Dallas and Arlington all rank among the top 25 most diverse cities in the country.

Fort Worth is known for its vast array of cultural, educational and entertainment opportunities. The city boasts three world class art museums—the Kimbell Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The Bass Performance Hall is one of the premier performance venues in the country. Concerts, film festivals and other events are held regularly at Sundance Square, Panther Island and Near Southside venues.
