Course of Study:
Cascadia's curriculum is grounded in a holistic view of teaching, learning, and doing. It is outcomes-based and guided by four overarching College-wide Learning Outcomes: 1) Learn Actively, 2) Think Critically, Creatively, and Reflectively; 3) Communicate with Clarity and Originality; and 4) Interact in Diverse and Complex Environments. Faculty members foster student achievement of discipline-specific learning outcomes, as well as College-wide and degree learning outcomes. Assessment is key to the design of the curriculum and the success of students. Consequently, a heavy emphasis is placed on continuous assessment of student learning, instructional programs and practices, and institutional effectiveness. Faculty play a key role in assessing outcomes in all of these areas. Associate Faculty members play a key role in assessing student learning.
The curriculum is designed to meet student needs. Classes are delivered in a variety of timeframes and delivery formats, including (but not limited to) learning communities and technology-based distance education. Classes may be offered in daytime, evening, weekend, short-term, accelerated, self-directed, or asynchronous (online, hybrid, etc.) formats or combinations of several formats. Some classes may be offered in open-entry, open-exit format. Candidates must be willing to teach in a variety of formats and varied class times.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion:
Diversity, equity and inclusion are hallmarks of the Cascadia culture. The curriculum is explicitly designed to promote skills, knowledge, and awareness about diversity and equity. Applications are especially encouraged from potential faculty who share our passion and vision to make Cascadia the state's premier campus for pluralism, multicultural richness and student success.

Cascadia is organized around principles that allow for access to information, collaboration, and communication. This structure promotes a constant emphasis on learning outcomes, student success, cooperation, cross-disciplinary connections, fluidity and flexibility in resource sharing and decision-making.
