The individual filling this position will contribute to our unique interdisciplinary approach and will teach courses at all levels of a strategic communication program, particularly those dealing with art direction, graphic design, copywriting, portfolio development, presentation media, visual literacy, and courses in his or her area of expertise.

All faculty are responsible for creating a first-rate environment for student learning in and out of classes, academic advising; engaging in recognized scholarly, creative, and /or professional work that, where possible, crosses and integrates the various disciplines in our curricula; and serving the department, school, college, and professional community, including committee work.
