Located in the thriving two-college town of Northfield, Minnesota, it is forty-five miles from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, in easy reach of a vibrant metropolitan area that is home to three million people and rich cultural resources. We are particularly interested in candidates who are committed to teaching a diverse student body in a highly selective, liberal arts environment.
