Tom Golisano, Founder

Who We Are Looking For: The Golisano Institute for Business and Entrepreneurship seeks a Lead Finance Faculty member to build our foundation of Finance courses and is excited about integrating them with other relevant business disciplines. We seek faculty who actively embrace an open mindset towards integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other technology into their teaching and advising, aiming not only to enhance their own teaching effectiveness, but also to significantly enrich our students' learning experiences and skills. At the Golisano Institute for Business & Entrepreneurship, our primary focus is on student learning and engagement; with faculty, with each other, and with the external business community. Classroom enrollments will be between 20-25 students to empower an emphasis on active teaching and learning. We are all at the institute for the empowerment of our students. It is about them, not us. Therefore, faculty will have a strong and consistent commitment to student learning including multi- and interdisciplinary integration between courses, so students understand connections and increase lateral thinking. Faculty will keep student-learning and progress central to their efforts, including assessing progress on CLOs and PLOs (see below). Faculty will be empathetic and engaged mentors to students in and out of the classroom. Faculty choose to teach at our Institute because:

• They want to teach; student learning and empowerment is their passion and their purpose.

• They want to advise; proactively and consistently mentoring students excites them.

• They want to improve; continuous improvement pedagogically & professionally is in their DNA.
