Welcome to Ohio University Southern campus. We hope you will find the information at this website useful. If you have any suggestions please click here to contact the site administrator.

Ohio University Southern relies heavily on adjunct (part-time) instructors to fulfill numerous course offerings. Generally, only persons with masters or terminal degrees qualify. On rare occasions, we employ some instructors with BA or BS degrees for the technical programs.

If you are interested in teaching, we need a current, well-developed CV [Word] and official copies of undergraduate and graduate transcripts.

Put these together with a cover letter expressing your interest, possible days and times you might be able to teach, plus list or suggest some classes that you feel might be in your area of expertise. Consult our undergraduate catalogs for an accurate list of courses.
Please note: new or exploratory courses are always designed by full-time faculty.

Mail, FAX, or e-mail/attach your submission packet (CV, transcripts, and cover letter) to:

Dr. Salome Nnoromele
Office of the Associate Dean
Riffe Center 272
Ohio University Southern
1804 Liberty Avenue
Ironton, OH 45638
FAX: 740.533.4590
