Division of Business and Computer Science
Accounting Faculty Position
Reports to: Division Chair
Classification: Full-time (10-month), salaried exempt position
Salary: The faculty appointment, rank and salary will be commensurate with experience and prior accomplishments.
The following is not intended to be a comprehensive list (not a formal job description), but instead is provided to give potential applicants an idea of the major expectations for this position. The individual who is hired should be ready to participate fully on the division team and expect full support from the team. It is important that this individual be a good fit not only in qualifications and interests, but in interpersonal dynamics.
The division takes our mission statement very seriously. It guides everything from our personnel decisions to our curricula. Our approach is to work together as a team to provide an excellent educational experience that includes encouraging student growth in all aspects of life. Each member of the team contributes in different ways, depending on individual strengths, background and abilities. Our team has developed tools and systems to assist with many of the tasks and we are fully prepared to support the individual who is hired in whatever ways we can.
To prepare professionals for Christian service in the business world by providing a quality, student-oriented education that emphasizes ethics and balances practice and theory.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
Teaching responsibilities will include approximately 12 credit hours per semester. Classes taught will likely include Individual and Corporate Tax, Principles of Accounting I and Intermediate Accounting II, Cost Accounting, Advanced Accounting and Business Ethics including other possibilities. The faculty member will be expected to prepare students for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program through providing extensive practice and coordinate the sites where they volunteer. The specific class and responsibility mix may be adjusted based on skills and interests.
The advisor role – providing academic, professional, spiritual and personal advice as appropriate – is a critical role for division faculty. Approximately 20-25 students are assigned as advisees to each faculty member. Advisors provide assistance in selecting a major and emphasis, planning for the completion of graduation requirements on schedule, sharing ideas on appropriate internships and suggesting alternate actions in courses where the student is struggling.
As teachers, faculty are responsible to plan courses that include the desired elements at the appropriate level of difficulty. As noted in the mission statement, the division intentionally chooses to mix theory and practice in the classroom as appropriate. In many cases, the best learning happens through actively doing something related to the topic. Sample syllabi and other guiding documents will be provided to assist in planning. The division chair, along with other faculty, is available for advice at any point along the way. A meeting with the chair to go over plans for the semester should take place no later than one week before classes begin. Course content will largely be largely predetermined the first time a course is taught, and after that there will be more latitude for changes in consultation with the division team.
Other duties related to courses that faculty are expected to complete include submitting Early Alerts for students who are struggling in a class, submitting midterm and final grades by the deadlines, providing timely feedback to students on class progress, following FERPA (student privacy) guidelines and completing course assessments.
New student recruitment is essential to our success. Faculty members actively recruit through individual and small group meetings with prospective students visiting campus, helping with College Days and Preview Days events, sending notes and emails and being on-call for part of the summer.
The division is blessed to have an active Advisory Board which provides ideas and funding for initiatives beyond the scope of what the college is able to support. Each member of the division team is expected to actively engage in meeting preparation, attend meetings as an active participant and contribute time and energy to initiatives that come from this group.
Other expectations include being available to students through keeping appropriate office hours, attendance at division, faculty and college-wide meetings and being supportive of campus-wide events such as Project Impact and chapel services (i.e. attending when possible).
Consideration of submitted materials will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should email a completed application, cover letter, and resume to Dr. Lisa L. Forbes, email@example.com. Submission of materials as attached Microsoft Word or PDF file(s) is preferable.
