As a professor, you will develop and extend current industry collaboration choices within the undergraduate curriculum, meeting critical standards and expectations for the discipline and the industry.

You will be asked to articulate your vision of design education in the 21st century. We want to know how you will nurture professionals to be able to think strategically about branding and marketing, generate quality ideas rapidly and collaborate with peers and clients in a productive, high-energy environment. You should be able to encourage students to deliver content over a dynamic, fluid system.

This position requires the terminal degree in graphic design or a related field.
