Purdue Global Full-Time Faculty IR, Programming and Database (Remote)

Our Opportunity:

The School of Business and Information Technology has an opening for a Full-Time Faculty member IR in the area of Programming and Database.

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 over the course of a year. School of IT standards are generally 15 hours of professional development.  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.


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.
