DEPARTMENT: Finance, Insurance, & Real Estate

POSITION TITLE: 2024-25 AY Lecturer Pool - Finance, Insurance, & Real Estate


The Department of Finance, Insurance, & Real Estate seeks part-time lecturers to teach courses in Finance, Risk Management and Insurance, and Real Estate in the BS/BA and MBA programs.  

Duties of a part-time lecturer include instruction, class preparation, grading, and office hours. Other duties may be assigned based on departmental needs. Course assignments, including dates, time, and modality, are made by the Department Chair under the direction of the College Dean.

Part-time lecturers are instructional faculty with conditional appointments based on enrollment and budget. Hires from the pool of applicants are made when there are instructional needs to fill coursework offered by an academic department based on changing enrollment patterns, changes to tenure-track faculty assignments, and other factors that cannot be addressed with our existing faculty. Initial appointments are typically for one semester, but occasionally academic year initial appointments are made. Appointments may be renewed based on department needs, funding, and performance. Often appointments are made just prior to the start of the semester.  


  • MBA or equivalent, or JD for law related courses.
  • Availability to teach and hold office hours face-to-face. Office hours = 45min/wk per 3-unit course.


  • Degree received from an AACSB accredited institution 
  • Five years related work experience

Initial rank and salary for lecturer faculty are based on professional and/or teaching experience and educational background and are determined by the hiring department. Most new lecturers are hired at the Lecturer A or B rank. As of July 2023, the classification salary ranges for the respective ranks are:

Lecturer A: $5,007 - $6,359

Lecturer B: $5,925 - $12,594

Lecturer C: $6,500 - $13,831

Lecturer D: $8,184 - $14,487

The salary ranges indicated are based on a "full-time rate" (15 weighted teaching units [WTUs]). A semester's worth of compensation is made up of six (6) payments of the given amount. To calculate your salary for a semester, the base rate would be pro-rated based on the units worked out of 15 WTUs.

If you were a Lecturer A assigned 3 units at the minimum salary, your pay would be structured as follows:

$5,007 x 3/15 (3 units out of a possible 15 units total) = $1001.40 x 6 checks = $6,008.40 total for 3 units/semester.



Applications for the 2024-25 academic year (AY) must be received by February 2, 2024 for priority review. Applications received after that date will be held for consideration as needed.
