FOUNDATIONAL TO ALL POSITIONS: To ensure that our mission continues to thrive, employees with Oklahoma Wesleyan University demonstrate a vital Christian faith through their commitment to the Four Pillars that are memorialized in our mission: the Primacy of Jesus Christ, the Priority of Scripture, the Pursuit of Truth, and the Practice of Wisdom. If you’re dedicated to these principles as well as our Statement of Belief, you would fit in well.
CRITICAL FOR ALL FACULTY POSITIONS: Accreditation standards require that instructors teaching a bachelor-level course possess a master-level (or higher) degree in the specific discipline or a minimum of 18 credit hours of graduate work in the specific discipline within another discipline’s master-level degree, and instructors teaching a master-level course possess a terminal degree, e.g. doctorate, in the discipline, unless special acceptance of professional experience is approved.
Three types of adjunct positions exist at Oklahoma Wesleyan University:
On-campus adjuncts teaching in our Adult and Graduate Studies (AGS) program
Faculty in this role work within the format of accelerated 5 – 8 week courses, meeting one night a week for four hours in the evening, as well as communicating and providing direction and feedback between sessions as needed. Curriculum for each course is pre-developed, so that the adjunct instructor’s time and energy can be focused on delivering the material and teaching in an engaging and empowering manner.
Online adjuncts teaching in our Adult and Graduate Studies (AGS) program
Faculty in this role work within the format of accelerated 5 – 8 week courses, exclusively online, interacting virtually through discussion boards and other online communication. Curriculum for each course is pre-developed, so that the adjunct instructor’s time and energy can be focused on delivering the material and teaching in an engaging and empowering manner.
Adjuncts teaching on our Residential campus (TRAD)
Faculty in this role are involved in semester-long courses, meeting two to three days per week for one to 1½ hours, typically during the daytime, on our Bartlesville, Oklahoma campus. The TRAD instructor develops the course syllabus and designs the content to be delivered.
Instructors are responsible for interacting with students in a positive and professional manner, demonstrating not just expertise and knowledge but also kindness and respect, supporting the Four Pillars of our mission. Faculty are also expected to represent the material from a biblical perspective, while guiding students through discussion and consideration of how the world might view the topic at hand, knowing that Truth can withstand questions.
Instructors also have the duty to respond to students either by email or in person, evaluate assignments and post grades, and communicate course expectations and changes, all in a timely manner.
OKWU’s dedication to providing top-notch ministry and christian thought includes employing professionals with demonstrated career success, who willingly and capably share their knowledge and expertise with students. Other qualifications include formal, advanced ministry and christian thought as defined by credentialing standards, the ability to relay material in an effective and engaging manner, and a willingness to encourage and lead students with an unflinching commitment to their success.
