Teaching load can range from 9 to 12 credit hours per semester in the Department of Management. The selectee, in coordination with other faculty, will develop (as appropriate) syllabi, course readings, assignments, class projects, and other pedagogical assessments of student learning and assessments of course outcomes. The selectee will also participate in planning and co-curricular aspects of the courses as necessary. In coordination with other faculty and staff members, the selectee will also be expected to participate directly with maintenance of the Department's AACSB accreditation. Major duties will also include advising cadets and participation in leadership and professional development activities with students outside of class and in service to the Academy.

    Minimum specialized experience: Candidates must meet two of the sub-requirements of a "scholarly academic" according to AACSB guidelines and the Department of Management's definition for faculty qualifications. Specifically, this means the applicant must demonstrate:

    • Evidence of in-discipline scholarship or intellectual contributions. Scholarly activity/research/intellectual contributions may include (not an exhaustive list): monographs, scholarly books/chapters, textbooks, proceedings from scholarly meetings, papers presented at faculty research seminars, publication in trade journals, in-house journals, book reviews, written cases with instructional materials, instructional software, and other publically available materials describing the design and implementation of new curricula or courses in the relevant field of discipline; and
