International Opportunity for Faculty:

UNC Charlotte Resident Directors at Kingston University
Kingston-upon-Thames, United Kingdom

The Office of Education Abroad (EA) in the Office of International Programs (OIP) invites interested, tenured faculty to consider serving as a Resident Faculty Director for our longstanding exchange program with Kingston University London in Kingston-upon-Thames, a Royal Borough of London. Applications for the position during the academic years 2024-2025 and 2025-2026 are now available (see below).

The position requires collaboration with EA in the recruitment, advising and orientation of students for the exchange program. While at Kingston, faculty are expected to advise, assist, and plan cultural visits for UNC Charlotte students. In addition to working with our students, faculty members normally teach one course at Kingston University as well as utilize the London area’s resources to do pertinent research in their field, as appropriate. Lastly, it is expected that the faculty member collaborates closely with OIP to advance the internationalization efforts of the institution as well as of their department.

Prior to departure and upon their return to UNC Charlotte, resident directors are expected to participate in international education advocacy activities planned by OIP to support and enhance our campus’ internationalization dimension. This support will be to serve as an ongoing international education advocate in the selected resident director’s home department and college.

Information sessions for interested faculty will be conducted in CHHS 207 on the following dates:

  • Thursday, April 20, 11:00am to 11:50am
