How to teach with Penn State World Campus

Penn State, a pioneer in distance education, launched Penn State World Campus in 1998. Our online programs employ more than 1,200 faculty members, many of whom teach both online and in residence. These faculty bring a commitment to providing the same high-quality, rigorous academic experience to our online students as is offered in our residence programs.

Faculty hiring decisions are made through each academic unit and campus. To see if there are any positions available, visit Penn State’s job search site. Use the drop down menus to make the appropriate selections. Please note that many of our Commonwealth Campuses partner with Penn State World Campus and therefore have faculty or teaching positions posted through their respective campus.

What strikes me is our students’ commitment. Although immersed in myriad responsibilities, they push on to graduate. And to see them walk across the stage at graduation provides a thrill, not only for them and their families, but for all of our instructors. I always find it inspiring.
