I am confident that you will find our campus to be a welcoming environment that supports both high quality teaching and research. The university offers impressive resources for you to enhance both your classroom and online teaching. Library resources are also exceptional.
The School of Management is a collegial organization supported by a committed faculty and staff. Our mission states that “we deliver innovative high quality educational programs; create intellectual contributions that advance business theory and practice; meaningfully engage our local and global communities; and demonstrate the highest integrity and ethics in all that we do.” On behalf of our entire faculty and staff, I encourage you to help us live by these worthy behavioral expectations.
Being a new faculty member is one of the most exciting and rewarding times in an academic career. I envy you that experience of meeting new colleagues and discovering the richness that your new colleagues and students will bring to you. As you learn more about our Flint community, I am confident you will come to embrace it and see the tremendous opportunity to become a part of its renaissance. Welcome!
