These are non-tenure track positions, beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year. The successful candidates are expected to refine and teach a course in business-focused communication (Communicative Literacy 2), a central component of the new UB Curriculum for General Education. The aim of this course is to prepare undergraduate students to successfully communicate in written and verbal forms, and across a range of genres and media, to peer, professional, and public audiences in the field; to make effective disciplinary and professional arguments; and, to produce communications individually and as part of a team. The instructors will work closely with school and department leadership in course development, improvement, and accreditation-related assessment, and will contribute to the intellectual life of the department, school, and university.
The UB Curriculum is a university-wide program of study built around intellectual discovery and integrative learning. It emphasizes critical thinking, ethical reasoning, global learning, and strong communication skills, providing the tools undergraduate students need to succeed in their professional life and to meet the responsibilities of citizenship in a diverse and interconnected world.
