I hope that I am not violating any protocol and certainly do not mean to
offend by jumping into a list of which I am not a member. The position I
describe below is, however, of such importance to us that I take this risk
and apologize in advance to anyone who may feel that I have overstepped
e-mail etiquette.

The University of Vermont seeks an individual for a tenured Associate or
Full Professor position, with academic field open, to begin work in August,
1994 as Director of ALANA (African-American, Latin-American,
Asian-American, Native American) Studies. The successful person will
coordinate existing College & University course requirements in the area of
Race & Ethnicity in America, teach and do research in this academic area,
and lead in the development and implementation of a formal academic program
in ALANA Studies. Although housed in the College of Arts & Sciences with
the Director reporting to the Dean of the College, the proposed academic
program will be university-wide, drawing faculty and students from UVM's
nine schools and colleges. In addition, the Director will work with
members of the community of Burlington.

The individual we seek must have teaching experience in ALANA Studies
although the terminal degree may be an academic discipline where teaching
and scholarship in ALANA Studies constitutes a subfield within the
discipline. Prior administrative experience is preferred since the
position is .50 FTE administrative. Since the position is also a tenured
one at the Associate or Full Professor rank in an appropriate department,
it is necessary for a candidate to have a record of excellence in teaching,
scholarship, and research.

Nominations and applications should be submitted to Associate Dean James F.
Lubker, Chair, ALANA Studies Search Committee, College of Arts & Sciences,
University of Vermont, 300 Waterman Building, Burlington, Vermont, 05405.
Applictions should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and three
letters of reference. Reading of materials will begin March 1, 1994 and
will continue until the position is filled.

UVM is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer and strongly
encourages applications from women and members of minority groups.

If you are not interested in this position but wish to nominate someone,
please write to me at the above address. In addition, I will be glad to
respond to questions via e-mail at the address given below.

Thanks to those who read this for taking the time to consider the position.
