To learn more about our community, please visit www.maret.org. Our historic campus is in the heart of Washington, D.C. and offers a unique setting, where students and faculty alike demonstrate a sense of energy, imagination, and entrepreneurial spirit. At Maret, everyone seeks a broader perspective – an expanded understanding of each other, our community, and the larger world. Equity and inclusion are at the heart of all we do. Maret School stands firmly behind the principle that the admission of students, the employment of faculty, the operation of programs, and the governance of the School be open to all who are qualified regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. We believe that this principle is both firmly grounded in the spirit of American democracy and in keeping with the civil responsibilities of an independent school.
If this description speaks to you and you are interested in working in the DC area, please send a cover letter and resume BY EMAIL ONLY to Nicholas Michalopoulos, Chair of the Humanities Department, at email@example.com. Unfortunately, we will not be able to respond personally to every applicant. You will hear from us only if your experience matches our current needs.
