Roosevelt University — The Arthur Rubloff Professorship

The Arthur Rubloff Professorship

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.

With its storied tradition of leadership in social justice dating back to its founding in 1945, Roosevelt University is an ideal home for a public-sector advocate to teach, mentor students, and build a program of research and advocacy. This position carries a reduced teaching load of a select slate of innovative graduate and undergraduate courses designed and taught by the Rubloff Chair. There is also an expectation of community engagement and public scholarship aligned with our academic programs and 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.
