Purdue Global Full-Time Faculty, Undergraduate IT

Our Opportunity:

The School of Business and Information Technology has an opening for a Full-Time
Faculty member in the Undergraduate IT program.

Job Summary:

Full-time faculty may have responsibilities in four areas: teaching, service, scholarship,
and professional development. The amount of time spent in each area is determined on
an annual basis, after discussion between the faculty member and their Chair, and may
vary from year to year. The workload is based on the needs of the Department and
School, consistent with the university’s mission as a teaching institution. While the
majority of faculty typically spend the greatest percentage of their time teaching, there is
the opportunity in a given year for the percentage of time in any category to change.
Teaching responsibilities may include both undergraduate and graduate courses. The
number of courses assigned will consider credentials, program needs, course types, the
number of different preparations, and the number of students served.


Service will typically include participating in and/or taking leadership roles in Purdue
Global department or institution-wide governance committees. Service examples also
include course lead, training and mentoring other faculty, facilitating student-focused
organizations or activities, the evaluation of student portfolios, curriculum work, vacation
relief for colleagues, and leadership in professional organizations. In limited cases,
specific service activities may be assigned additional compensation.


Scholarship activities vary with the interests of the individual faculty member and may
not be required. Scholarship activities should be developed in consultation with the
Dean, Associate Dean or Chair. Examples of PG scholarship activities include
developing and implementing solutions or new approaches to academic and
professional challenges, as well as publishing articles related to research within the
discipline or profession and/or presenting at academic or professional meetings.
Some professional development (8 hours minimum) is required for all faculty at Purdue
University Global over the course of a year. Faculty development beyond these
minimum expectations may be considered part of an annual workload, if determined
appropriate by the Chair or requested by the faculty member and approved by the
Chair.

 

A balance of these four responsibilities is intended to sustain the academic goals of the
university to serve adult learners, and advance the professional goals of the faculty,
while creating a supportive learning environment that provides students with a clear
path to graduation.


Teaching is typically the primary assignment for a Purdue Global faculty member, with
service, scholarship and additional professional development activities comprising the
balance of the annual workload. If no assignments are made in service and scholarship,
a faculty member whose only assignment is teaching would not exceed 16-18 courses
taught in a year.
