University School of Nashville will host the Independent Schools' People of Color Career Fair from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 in the Gordon Multipurpose Room.

"As Nashville continues to grow, we want to tap into the diversity and experiences of the talent moving here to enrich the educational experiences of our students, faculty, and staff as well as those at our peer institutions," said Roderick White, diversity & community life director.

This fair is open to all independent schools in Tennessee as well as all people of color seeking employment. People of color include persons of African, Middle Eastern, Asian, and Hispanic descent as well as multiracial people. K-12 faculty positions include full-time teaching, administrator, teaching assistant, and substitute teacher positions.

USN has a longstanding commitment to attract students of diverse backgrounds and strives to mirror the cultural and ethnic composition of Metro Nashville. Some 36% of its student body are children of color, and one in every five employees is a minority. USN's predecessor Peabody Demonstration School became the second Nashville independent school to integrate in 1964. To view and apply for open positions at USN, visit
