[eDebate] Job Announcement - ADOD Position - Kansas State University
Wed Apr 12 13:53:07 CDT 2006
Melissa Newton spent this past year as the Assistant Director of
Debate at Kansas State University. She has announced her application
for Directorships at another school. On behalf of K-State debate, we
want to thank her for her hard work, dedication, and love for the
Wildcats as an alumn, a coach, and an eternal friend of the program.
Because she is such a strong candidate and because of the timing in
the year, we have decided to advertise the job.
Below follows the official job announcement. Although not explicitly
stated in the announcement, driving is not a requirement. I also have
an FAQ about our debate team, Manhattan, and the department; I would
be happy to forward it to anyone interested.

instructor/debate coach position in the Speech Communication Division

BEYOND THE OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
The debate team receives substantial support directly from the
President. We have a roster of 20 debaters to start next year across
all three divisions and graduate only one senior. We are a squad who
seeks both to win and have fun debating. If you are not interested in
either of the two, please don't apply.
For those of you who don't know, Manhattan, KS is a phenomenal place
to live. Housing is cheap. Aggieville with many eating and drinking
establishments offers entertainment across the street from the school.
It is very possible to walk to the school, entertainment, and home.
This department has incredibly nice people. They reason, they don't
dictate; they are more than willing to explain.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you have further questions.
