Teaching responsibilities may include undergraduate and graduate courses in both on-ground and online environments. Advising/mentoring of students is expected with a minimum of 5 hours/week of mandatory office hours, but is also encouraged through other engagement opportunities such as supporting clubs, attending sports and social gatherings, and participating in open house events.
