To achieve its unique mission, Deep Springs employs a team of highly dedicated, talented staff and faculty.
Faculty. The teaching faculty is anchored by three long-term professors in the broad areas of humanities, natural science and social science. These faculty members typically remain at the College from two to six years. Additionally, the College employs short term professors who teach for a period of time ranging from a seven-week summer term, to a semester or an entire year. At any given time, there are generally five to seven professors on campus.

Staff. Since learning at Deep Springs is not confined to the classroom, staff members as well as faculty are seen as mentors and educators. Staff members work closely with students, supervising, instruction and giving feedback on students’ work in the Labor Pillar. Staffing levels and positions change from year to year as the College’s needs change. Staff positions at Deep Springs include Director of Operations, Ranch Manager, Asst. Ranch Manager, Boarding House Manager, Mechanic, Garden Manager, and Office Manager. At present, all positions are staffed, and no openings are anticipated.
Living & Working at Deep Springs. With few exceptions, all Deep Springs staff and faculty live on campus and are invited to eat communal meals in the dining hall. There are no attendance requirements for meals or other community events, but faculty and staff are invited and encouraged to participate in the general community life of Deep Springs. A generous benefits package is offered to long-term employees, including health & dental/vision insurance, paid time off, employer-paid retirement contributions and funds for professional development.
