THE DEPARTMENT: The University Libraries consist of the main Hayward campus library in the new CORE building, a smaller Concord campus library, and a robust online presence. The Libraries provide an evidence-based Information Studies Program that supports students' development of a critical consciousness about the information universe. Our program is based on the belief that the Library serves our academic community in formal and informal ways, supporting learning in specific academic disciplines and support for lifelong learning. We embrace our role in student success via instructional efforts such as our department's credit courses, course-integrated instruction in other departments, standalone workshops, and one-on-one consultations on and off the Reference Desk. We work collegially with students and faculty to meet not only their information needs, but also to foster a culture of critical information literacy: one that values being conscious of how knowledge is created, best practices for research, the social and political implications of information access and use, and the importance of active participation in the scholarly conversation.

DUTIES OF THE POSITION: Equitable Learning Experiences and Environments Librarian will focus on facilitating students' experience with the Library's online and physical offerings to support student success and belonging, including first year students, new transfer students, first generation college students, and students from underserved communities at Cal State East Bay.

Equitable Learning Experiences and Environments Librarian will support students to establish strong awareness of and engagement with the library and its services to help ensure their retention and success. The faculty in this role will focus on reimagining user experience in the design and provision of equitable online and face-to-face environments that enhance belongingness and student success at Cal State East Bay, fostering connections to peers, community, and institutional resources that will contribute to academic and social success. In collaboration with library colleagues, the faculty in this role will leverage and expand existing partnerships with programs and departments directly related to student success and student retention on campus, such as student affinity groups (such as the forthcoming Black Student Success Center, a Latinx Student Success Center, an API Student Success Center, and an Undocumented Student Resource Center), student support programs, (such as EOP, EXCEL, Summer Bridge, Renaissance Scholars, DISC, Project Rebound) and other targeted onboarding programs (such as GANAS, Sankofa Scholars, APASS, INSPIRE). In addition, this position will be expected to meet all requirements for tenure-track faculty, including instruction, research, and service, with assigned liaison duties.

The job applicant should address the following required and desired qualifications in their cover letter. Applicants are encouraged to draw upon a wide range of experiences, including but not limited to coursework, internships, externships, and community or volunteer work.

Equitable Learning Experiences and Environments Librarian will create new opportunities for the library to:

  • focus on user experience in the design and provision of equitable online and face-to-face environments that foster belongingness and student success, including first year students, new transfer students, first generation college students, and students from underserved communities;
  • re-imagine user experience from a future-oriented perspective, centered around student and community needs, interests, and demands beyond technological applications;
  • coordinate with and support Library Faculty and Student Ambassadors in the design of equity-informed welcoming library environments and initiatives;
  • coordinate with Library Faculty to articulate the relationship between library environments and student belonging and success, and to design effective assessment strategies to measure impact;
  • establish strong student awareness and belonging within Library environments both online and in-person in order to help reduce the opportunity gaps and time to graduation;
  • explore and implement established and emerging strategies (such as digital humanities initiatives) that center student and communities voices and lived experience in online and on-ground environments;
  • further build relationships between the Libraries and other academic units, student services, and student leadership units across our campus;

Please note that teaching assignments at California State University, East Bay include courses at the Hayward, Concord, and Online campuses. The policy and expectation of the California State University is that tenure-track faculty members will perform their duties within the state of California. In addition to teaching, all faculty have advising responsibilities, assist the department with administrative and/or committee work, and are expected to assume campus-wide committee responsibilities.
