Find a community. Make your mark.
At the College of Lake County, we believe most of us want two equally important things from our careers: the opportunity to feel part of a close-knit work community and the fulfillment that comes from making our own unique contributions and being recognized for them.
We pride ourselves on offering the kind of campus environment where community and individual achievement thrive, and we nurture both through important benefits like these:
- Very competitive compensation packages.
- Innovative New Faculty Institute to help each new professor develop peer connections, make a smooth transition to teaching and feel at home in our institution.
- Professional development incentives for further education, publication and conference presentations.
- Teaching resources and support for classroom innovation through our Professional Development Center.
If you’re seeking a position at an institution that nourishes individual achievement and strong community, we want to hear from you.
