The Official Home Of America's Top Faculty™
I am a dept. chair and new associate professor of engineering at a small regional university. I was recently contacted about a job opening for a dean's position at a for-profit online university. As someone who has been involved with some online classes, I found the position to be interesting. I even did a phone interview. Now I have been contacted for an in person interview. Something in the back of my head keeps telling me this is a career killer job that will make it difficult for me to transition back into a traditional university. What do you think? I would love to be in administration but I don't want to make my career in for-profit schools.
