The College of Business Administration (COBA) at Texas A&M University--Central Texas (A&M-Central Texas) is currently looking for new faculty members in our Management and Marketing Department with a particular need for someone able to teach employment law, labor relations, and legal environment of business courses (all three in an academic year) beginning in the fall of 2015.

A&M-Central Texas was established in 2009 as an upper-level undergraduate and graduate institution within the Texas A&M University System.  Although we are young and developing, the state, the region, the U.S. Army, the Texas A&M System, and a Silicon Valley investment group are all making considerable investments in our success.  In 2010, the U.S. Army donated 600+ acres of land for our campus, and our second building on the new campus just opened this summer, with others to follow, including a building to house COBA.

A&M-Central Texas is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools Commission on Colleges and COBA is currently ACSBP accredited. We are excited to announce that in March we formally began an exciting journey towards AACSB accreditation by becoming a member institution and have continued to work diligently on that goal over the last several months.

We are located in Killeen, TX, a city of about 120,000 (not including the 50,000+ on Fort Hood, which is the largest Army installation in the world).  Killeen is about an hour north of Austin, and just a few miles west of the I-35 corridor, which is one of the fastest trans-metropolitan regions in North America.  Killeen is part of an MSA of over 400 thousand, which grew an astonishing 30% between 2000 and 2010, and has been virtually recession-proof.  New investment and construction has continued unabated at a breakneck pace since 2009, and the State of Texas currently operates with a large budget surplus.  A&M-Central Texas also has the most diverse student body in Texas, and Killeen is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the state (owing a lot to Fort Hood).  

Furthermore, the cost of living can't be beat: the median home value in this ZIP code is around $125,000, and the cost-of-living index is only 87 (100 is average).

Our student body is non-traditional, with an average age of about 33 years, but that has been trending downward.  We have a lot of active duty and veteran military personnel, but a growing proportion of civilians.  Most of our classes are offered in the afternoon and evening, but we are moving toward more traditional morning/day classes.  In addition, because of our strong ties to serving military personnel around the world, we also offer many courses online (40%).  This is an important element of our university mission, and is not driven solely by cost considerations.  

We have excellent online course technology, technical support, and a course development support staff to help those with little or no online teaching experience get up to speed.  Depending on preferences, most full-time faculty teach anywhere from 25%-50% of their courses online. 

Faculty members would first and foremost be expected to provide excellent instruction, but a significant part of faculty evaluation includes university and professional service and scholarship.  The research and publication expectations here are modest and commensurate with our teaching mission.  There is ample flexibility and funding support to engage in scholarly activities, and many of our faculty members do it very well.  Our current faculty members have published in noteworthy journals and have served on several major editorial boards.  We are looking for people who can and want to do research, but who are equally concerned with quality teaching and having an impact on students and in the community.  Our primary concern is that you care deeply about what you write about and are bringing that excitement and knowledge into the classroom.  

Teaching at a young, growing institution is a lot of work, but it's also a unique opportunity to have the flexibility to do scholarship and service that "counts" in many different ways, and to be able to put your fingerprint on an institution that is changing lives daily, and hopefully for many years to come.  

Successful candidates must be able to demonstrate the capability to teach at a high level in both face to face and online course formats, which assumes strong technological skills and hopefully experience using learning management systems like Blackboard. This will be a tenure track appointment at the rank of either Assistant or Associate Professor and pay commensurate with one’s experience and the norms of similarly situated institutions.

Lucas Loafman who is the Chair of the A&M-Central Texas Management & Marketing Department, and a longtime ALSB member, will be in Seattle Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to speak with interested applicants. 

If you have any questions or are interested in discussing this with him in Seattle, he may be reached at loafman@tamuct.edu.
