The position is for a student-centered, innovative faculty member with experience and interest in teaching Business Communication related topics. Emphasis in the classroom is on the students learning from each other and through their own curiosity. Instructors spend much of their time guiding students in professional behavior, helping them to build confidence, and advising them on choices that will help them reach their goals. Business Communication Instructors are also key members of the local academic team, and may be expected to take on additional projects at the request of the Director of Center for Professional Communication.
The Integrated Business Cluster (IBC) is consistently cited as one of the most valuable educational experiences by students and alumni. IBC brings teachers from multiple disciplines into one class where students work as teams to solve business problems. Professors represent business communication, management, analytics and information systems, and marketing. Student teams are then challenged to apply what they’ve learned from all four disciplines to solve authentic business problems. Professors will facilitate students as they learn and integrate key concepts, and also gain practical experience in leadership, time management, teamwork, problem solving, and analytical thinking.
This open position is for an instructional faculty member. There is no opportunity for this position to become a tenure track position and there is no career path to transition between instructional and tenure track positions. Each is a distinct and separate role within the COB and requires different qualifications, credentials, experience and competitive application to open positions.
