Duties and Responsibilities

The major responsibilities and duties of a faculty member in our department can be categorized in three groups: Scholarship and Professional Development, Service, and Teaching. For Scholarship and Professional Development, our faculty members are expected to produce high quality research in the form of publications and presentations, and involve students in some of these research projects; also to participate in peer reviews, and engage in activities that further develop the faculty skills, knowledge, and productivity.  With respect to Service, our faculty are expected to participate in faculty governance by leading faculty appointed committees, mentoring student affinity groups, advising students as they make progress in their college studies, and further the quality of their own department by evaluating and producing novel curriculum that reflects the state of the art in computing technology. In Teaching, faculty are expected to teach their courses using academic technology, excellent communication skills, and state of the art techniques to appropriately prepare the students to succeed in their careers, all the while fulfilling both the institutional and departmental goals set forth.
