College of Business Faculty Fellow


About this Position

The Faculty Development Center, in conjunction with the College of Business, seeks applicants for a Faculty Fellow for the winter 2024 semester.  This faculty fellow will be released from teaching one course during the winter semester (or, at their choice, can receive an honorarium for an equivalent amount).  In exchange, they would be expected to offer programming to address needs specific to the College of Business.  The faculty fellow would be expected to plan about four programs for the college during the semester, which can include one-off workshops, a series of programs on the same topic, inviting guest-speakers to campus, or other ideas that the fellow would like to propose.  The fellow need not run these programs, but should facilitate their development and implementation, all with the full support of the FDC Director and staff.

Programming should be on topics of particular interest to COB.  This could include (but is not limited to):

  1. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, particularly as they relate to (1) the programming and curriculum of the College of Business; and/or (2) the teaching of these topics in classes;
  2. Business analytics - coordinating interdisciplinary business analytics initiatives within the College, including developing future proposals for courses or programs;
  3. Leveraging generative AI for enhancing business practices;
  4. Enhancing engagement with regional business community members to help students in our classrooms; and
  5. Building a community among the students, faculty, and staff at COB.

The Faculty Fellow will have access to a budget of up to $2500 to support such programming.  This can include expenses associated with events - including food, speaker fees, modest honoraria to participants (particularly for multiple-session programs) or other such things.  We would be open to creative use of this funding to achieve goals for the fellowship.

The deadline to apply for this position has passed. We look forward to announcing the faculty fellow soon.

Please contact Jeffrey Bernstein, Director of the Faculty Development Center, or Kenneth Lord, Dean of the College of Business, if you have any questions about this faculty fellowship.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the GameAbove Faculty First Fund for their backing of this initiative.
