Governors State University’s AACSB accredited College of Business seeks applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor of Management Information Systems beginning August 2021. This is a 9-month year appointment covering fall 2021 and spring 2022 terms (August 16, 2021 – May 15, 2022). Visiting Assistant Professors will be appointed for a specific period of time. This temporary faculty position’s primary duties will emphasize teaching responsibilities in Management Information Systems, including office applications, IT infrastructure, management information systems, systems analysis, and other courses.
