Presentation #2

Arum Park

University of Arizona

I worked for three years at a Mormon-affiliated institution as a Visiting Assistant Professor — a very positive experience for me overall, but definitely one requiring some adjustment. My non-LDS identity and my female gender were salient in every aspect of my work there: the school employs very few non-Mormons, and relatively few female faculty, so for the vast majority of my students I was the only non-Mormon and one of a few women who had ever taught or would ever teach them. I will discuss how this affected my teaching and my overall integration into the institution's community.
