The College of Adult & Professional Studies (CAPS) and College of Business (COB) Faculty Lead oversees curriculum development, conducts student advising, leads faculty acquisition, and coordinates program improvement for the academic programs within the COB that are delivered by CAPS. This may include programs offered through the Adult Evening, Online, Church Partnership Program, Concurrent Credit, and other CAPS programs.
The Faculty Lead is a full-time College of Business faculty appointment eligible for tenure and promotion. The Coordinator reports directly to the CAPS dean or appropriate CAPS director regarding day-to-day management of the CAPS program, including teaching and advising assignments, course assessment, faculty assessment and development, and regular faculty assignment to courses. The COB dean oversees the Faculty Lead’s professional development as a faculty member, teaching outside of CAPS (if any), curriculum development work, and faculty acquisition. The Faculty Lead’s annual reviews and advancement considerations are conducted by both deans. Faculty contracts are usually issued on a 12-month basis by the Provost, at the discretion of both deans and Provost.
