Chaffey College is seeking individuals from a broad range of cultural heritages, socioeconomic backgrounds, genders, abilities, and orientations. We are particularly interested in faculty who fully demonstrate their understanding of the community we serve; the benefits of equity, diversity, and inclusion in a professional and educational setting; and the value of bringing people together, empowering diverse voices, and supporting a sense of belonging.
Situated on the ancestral homeland of the Tongva Peoples, Chaffey College is one of the oldest community colleges in California and serves a variety of communities, workforce partners, and students. While other community colleges are often named after their geographic area, Chaffey College is named after local innovator, George Chaffey. Like our namesake, we are known for an innovative culture, dynamic environment, and future-mindedness.
On a regular basis, we commit ourselves to remaining on the front edge of transformational practices, which requires a continuous investment in faculty and their growth. We depend on faculty to co-design and lead the implementation of initiatives that positively impact students and advance the completion of their goals. Further, we remain closely tied to our community and are seeking faculty who will join us in our quest to provide responsive and supportive programming to engage and improve the communities we serve. The entire campus community aspires to consistently fulfill the vision that Chaffey College improves lives through education. Chaffey College is seeking faculty who will join in the fulfillment of our vision through commitment to continuous improvement and student achievement for all.
Chaffey College celebrates the diverse communities we serve. As a federally recognized Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Chaffey’s student population includes over 62% identifying as Latine/x/a/o, 17% White, 8% African-American/Black, 6% Asian, and smaller percentages of Filipino (2.8%), Native American (0.40%), Pacific Islander (0.30%), and decline to state (2.82%). Furthermore, 40% of our students are first-generation college students, and approximately 62% of students are eligible for some form of financial aid. The current student population identifies as 62% female and 36% male with smaller percentages who either decline to state or identify as non-binary. Approximately 5% of Chaffey’s students utilize Disabled Programs and Services for support. To support the diverse needs of these populations and their intersections, the College has developed a variety of robust equity-driven efforts in and out of the classroom including the Center for Culture and Social Justice, Panther Care, Turning Point, Success Centers, Guiding Panthers to Success (GPS) Centers, and Bringing Light to Ourselves and Others Through Multiculturalism (BLOOM) training. Given the differences in the students’ backgrounds and life experiences, faculty must be poised to provide culturally-responsive instruction and support for all of our students’ needs and goals. We strive to continuously enlarge and improve our efforts to advance student success. As a result, new faculty are currently being sought to contribute to the continuous transformation of the College.
