Worcester State University is a master’s-level liberal arts and sciences university with a tradition of academic excellence dating back to 1874, as well as an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer that seeks to reflect the diversity of its community.  Located in central Massachusetts, about an hour's drive from Boston or Springfield, Massachusetts, and Providence, Rhode Island, the university’s campus is nestled in the second-largest city in New England, home to 37,000 college students at more than a dozen colleges and universities.

Full-time faculty at the university work under terms of a collective bargaining agreement negotiated between the Massachusetts State College Association and the Council of Presidents of the Massachusetts State University System.  Teaching loads are four courses (12 credits) per fall and spring semesters.  Tenure-track faculty follow a six-year-to-tenure process and are evaluated annually in four areas: teaching effectiveness, including pedagogical experimentation; academic advising; continuing research, scholarship, and/or creative activity; and other professional activities such as service to the community, profession, and/or university.  The collective bargaining agreement specifically rewards community-engaged practices in teaching and community-engaged approaches to continuing scholarship.  Over the past five years, the university has significantly increased funding to support research, scholarship, and creative activity by both faculty and students.
