SBCC is an equal opportunity employer committed to nondiscrimination on the basis of ethnic group identification, national origin, religion, age, sex, race, color, ancestry, marital, parental or veteran status, sexual orientation, pregnancy, gender identity, gender expression, or physical or mental disability, or on the basis of these perceived characteristics or based on association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics, consistent with applicable federal and state laws. Reasonable accommodation will be provided for applicants with disabilities who self-disclose.

To be considered for a full time faculty or educational administrator position, you must complete an online application, including all required application documents. The completed application must be submitted via SBCC Careers by the date shown as the application deadline. It is important that the online District application form be complete and specific to fully indicate education, experience and other qualifications of the applicant. "See Resume" is not acceptable.

You may attach additional supporting material to the online application under “Applicant Documents” section entitled, “Other.” If you apply for more than one position, copies of all the required documents must be attached separately for each position. Applications and all documents submitted become the property of SBCC and are retained electronically.

If claiming equivalency, attach a separate statement in the “Documents Needed To Apply” section entitled “Equivalency” in the online application. The statement presents the basis for this claim and submit supporting evidence, e.g. transcripts, publications, other documents.

Instructions for Completing Equivalency Documentation
