Position Summary

Roosevelt University invites applications for the Arthur Rubloff Endowed Chair in Public Interest Law or Policy. The ideal candidate will have a distinguished record of practice, service, and advocacy in any area of public-interest law or public policy, as well as experience teaching at the undergraduate or graduate levels. Candidates with expertise in human rights, diversity and inclusion, or environmental justice are particularly welcomed. Rank open.

The Rubloff Chair will:
• Develop academic programming that builds community engagement and external relations for the college and university.

This position carries a reduced teaching load and an expectation of community engagement and public scholarship aligned with our academic programs and our mission. The successful candidate will benefit from Roosevelt’s location in the midst of Chicago’s Loop, where faculty and students can easily take advantage of the city’s resources for research, education, and service, from its highly diverse student population, and from its stated and active mission to promote mutual understanding, inclusion, social consciousness, and action toward social justice.

Roosevelt University is a private, non-sectarian university with 4,500 students studying at campuses in Chicago’s south Loop, suburban Schaumburg and online. Founded on the principles of inclusion and social justice, Roosevelt is the fourth most ethnically diverse college in the Midwest, with a mission to prepare students to assume roles as leaders in their professions and communities.
