The major responsibilities and duties of a faculty member in our department can be categorized in three groups: Teaching, Scholarship / Professional Development, and Service. In Teaching, faculty are expected to teach their courses using state of the art techniques and pedagogical approaches, excellent communication skills, and academic technology to appropriately prepare the students to succeed in their careers, all the while fulfilling both the institutional and departmental goals set forth. For Scholarship and Professional Development, our faculty members are expected to produce high quality research in the form of publications and presentations, and involve students in some of these research projects; also, to participate in peer reviews, and engage in activities that further develop the faculty skills, knowledge, and productivity. With respect to Service, our faculty are expected to participate in faculty governance by leading faculty appointed committees, mentoring student affinity groups, advising students as they make progress in their college studies, and further the quality of their own department by evaluating and producing novel curriculum that reflects the state of the art in computing technology.

About Marist College
Marist is dedicated to helping students develop the intellect, character, and skills required for enlightened, ethical, and productive lives in the global community of the 21st century. The College fulfills its mission by pursuing three ideals: excellence in education, a sense of community, and a commitment to service. These ideals were handed down to us by the Marist Brothers who founded the College. Now an independent institution governed by a lay board of trustees, Marist continues to embrace the three ideals as an integral part of the College mission.
