Position Summary
The Division of Accounting, Finance, MIS, and Economics in the College of Business and Public Administration at Governors State University seeks applications for a Visiting Professor in Accounting beginning in August, 2013. Visiting Professors will be appointed for a specific period of time, normally one to two years. This temporary faculty position's primary duties will emphasize teaching responsibilities but may also encourage research and community service activities. Although this position is not tenure-track and not a part of the faculty bargaining unit, it may be an ideal position for an ABD candidate to obtain significant teaching experience prior to going into the tenure track market. There may be the potential for this position to transition to a tenure track position. Governors State is especially interested in "growing our own" accounting faculty to better serve our diverse student population.

The successful candidate will be academically or professionally qualified to teach graduate and undergraduate accounting courses in our bachelor's programs in business, economics, entrepreneurship, and accounting, as well as our MBA, Master's of Science in Accounting, and Masters of Science in MIS Programs. The College serves approximately 900 graduate and undergraduate students. We seek candidates with outstanding teaching skills and interest in working with diverse, non-traditional student populations.

Governors State University is the only regional, public, comprehensive university in Chicago's south suburban area, serving approximately 7,750 students annually. GSU provides accessible, high value undergraduate and graduate education to culturally and economically diverse students. With the lowest undergraduate tuition in Illinois, GSU offers accredited programs that have earned high praise from national accrediting agencies. Founded in 1969, GSU is undergoing major transition. Currently a non-residential, "senior institution," accepting transfer and graduate students only, GSU will accept first-year students and complete its first residence halls in 2014. The university has an ambitious five-year Academic Master Plan, greatly expanding current programs. GSU is planning a state-of-the art General Education program and working to greatly expand student academic and support services to foster student and community engagement. New faculty at GSU must demonstrate enthusiasm and ability to work with students at all levels, from first-year to graduate.

Through its Strategy 2015, GSU emphasizes excellence, access, and innovation. Students benefit from the university's high academic quality, range of convenient class times, increasing hybrid and online offerings, and outstanding educational value. GSU seeks to become a national leader in successful transfer of community college students to universities, and is leading through the Kresge-supported Dual Degree Program, with features such as tuition lock-in at GSU for academically eligible community college students who commit to earn an Associate Degree and attend college full-time. GSU offers several applied doctoral degrees in health and counseling fields and is launching an Ed.D. in Interdisciplinary Leadership in January 2013.

The exceptionally beautiful campus is conveniently located within easy reach by road and rail to Chicago and surrounding communities that have a wealth of cultural and natural attractions. The high diverse region GSU serves has a number of high performing schools and engaged communities as well as struggling urban, suburban, and rural communities. GSU seeks to serves as a public square, working to foster educational opportunities for all populations.
