Business Faculty Position

Aurora University is an independent, comprehensive institution founded in 1893 offering bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees.

We seek people passionately involved in the educational process who will help us realize our vision.

We seek talented faculty who are passionate about teaching and learning. As a private institution, Aurora University expects faculty to be involved in the lives of students through mentoring, student support, enrollment initiatives, and other activities related to the college experience.

Evidence of successful teaching, or a strong potential for successful teaching, is required for all positions. Undergraduate faculty share in the delivery of the general education program, most often by teaching within the university's interdisciplinary core.
