The following departments/programs have requested to host a postdoctoral faculty member:

The Gonzaga Music Department is a center of vibrant performance and creative study for music majors, minors, and non-majors from all disciplines. Over 800 students and 35 faculty integrate musical excellence and innovation through a liberal arts education that includes performances, festivals, tours, interdisciplinary collaborations, and research. Majors and non- majors alike combine their passion for music with pursuing lives of leadership and service for the common good. Musical artists enable our community, nation, and world to inspire others, to creatively seek new solutions, and to build bridges among diverse people.


The Critical Race and Ethnic Studies program (CRES) is an interdisciplinary academic home for the study of race and ethnicity. Critical Ethnic Studies explores how ideological constructions of race have material consequences in the lived experiences of people of color. Taking an intersectional perspective, it examines how race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, and nationality intersect to shape our experiences within what Patricia Hill Collins terms the matrix of domination. Critical Ethnic Studies examines not only histories of domination and oppression, but also ways that historically marginalized groups have resisted, disidentified with, and re-imagined possibilities for agency in the past, present, and future. As a reflection of the fifty-year intellectual tradition of ethnic studies, Gonzaga's CRES program is both student-driven and student centered.
