The Philosophy Department at California State University, Sacramento, recently advertised a new job for Assistant Professor with AOS in History of Philosophy or Metaphysics


Sacramento is one of the most diverse cities in the country and CSU Sacramento reflects this diversity. CSU Sacramento is a federally recognized Hispanic-Serving and Asian-American
Native American Pacific Islander Serving institution. More than half of our students are students of color and one third of our students are first in their families to go to college.
CSU Sacramento's commitment to serving this diverse population of students is maybe best demonstrated through its new antiracism and inclusion campus plan.

CSU Sacramento has offered (and is likely to continue to offer) new faculty a reduced teaching load of three courses per semester for the first two years.
Our college and university supports its junior faculty in this and many other ways as they pursue their teaching and research goals.
