NYU is committed to providing a campus community that reflects and enacts the values of inclusion, diversity, belonging, and equity that inform academic excellence. NYU's Washington, DC Academic Center is seeking a local, part-time lecturer to teach an undergraduate politics course, "Politics of Public Policy," for upper-level undergraduate students. The course will be under the sponsorship of NYU's College of Arts and Science.
The course is expected for Spring 2023 (late January to mid May). The class meeting pattern for this 4 credit course will be discussed with qualified applicants during the interview process. In addition to the time required for course preparation, classroom instruction, and assessment, the instructor is required to hold a minimum of one set 60-minute office hour per instruction day, during which the instructor will be available to meet with students. The instructor must be prepared to deliver course content remotely if conditions do not allow in-person instruction.
The instructor role includes all preparation, delivery, and grading. Using Washington, DC as a learning tool (e.g., a guest speaker, an excursion) is an expectation for the course. Courses are to be intellectually challenging in content, and rigorous student assessment is required. We are especially interested in qualified candidates who share NYU Washington, DC's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and who can contribute to the diversity of intellectual life at our site.
This course aims to provide students with a thorough understanding of the intricate workings and politics of American public policy. From the basic contours of the policy cycle, to the various values of the multiple audiences involved in policy, to contemporary approaches and application of incentives and punishment in policy design, this course offers students a wide-ranging knowledge of American public policy. The course is one of the core courses of NYU's undergraduate Public Policy Major.
