Share your knowledge become an instructor for UCR Extension

With 30,000 students enrolled each year and a dedication to providing individual attention to students, UC Riverside Extension is always looking for new instructors who have a passion for sharing their knowledge with others.

UCR Extension's instructors are working professionals, noted specialists and experts in the fields they are teaching. They have advanced and specialized education in their subjects, which enables students to take what they learn in the classroom and apply it immediately to their jobs. Most UCR Extension instructors teach just one or two courses on subjects in which they are experts.

Our courses are offered in a variety of formats, so instructors can select the format that best suits their lives. Classes are offered during the day, at night, and on the weekends.

Many of our instructors are experienced teachers who find they benefit and learn from their classes almost as much as they contribute to the students' learning. Our instructors also share and work hard to uphold the organization's values:

  • Learner-centered. UCR Extension measures itself by what students have learned.
  • Commitment to Excellence. We are driven to provide the best instructors and the best education experience.
  • Lifelong Access. We are available to people of all ages, at any time and at their convenience, with educational programs that meet the needs of our diverse population.
  • Public Engagement. UCR Extension is a critical partner in the social, cultural and economic development of our local region as well as the global community.

If you share these values, are a working professional and expert in a field and have a passion for teaching adult students and want to join us as an instructor, please fill out the interest form below. Your information will be reviewed and forwarded to the appropriate department. You can also directly contact the departments for which you are interested in teaching.

We look forward to hearing from you.
