Earlham College continues to build a community that reflects the gender and racial diversity of society at large, and, is therefore particularly interested in encouraging applications from African Americans, other ethnic minorities, and women. Earlham is also eager to solicit applications from members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). We welcome applications from people sympathetic to social justice, simplicity, consensus seeking, and other Quaker values. We are open to applications from those with non-linear career trajectories.
