The position starts August 2022 and the standard teaching load is nine credit hours per semester with release time available based on research productivity. A willingness and ability to teach online is also expected as the School has an online Master’s of Science in Risk and Insurance (MSRI) Program.

Applications should include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, evidence of teaching experience and effectiveness, statement of experience with and commitment to teaching a diverse student body, and the contact information of three current references.

Additionally, successful candidates will share our belief that individual faculty members can make a difference in the life of a student, that creativity and risk-taking are important facets of teaching and learning, and that research must be balanced with, and complementary to, excellent teaching.
