If what was just described is what you look for in a workplace, welcome to the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) !

The College of Business and Administration at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) will establish and maintain a pool of Lecturers in Career Exploration & Development (ROAR Program) from which future appointments to temporary, non-tenure track positions will be made. Appointments are part-time (less than 50% time) and will be made semester-by-semester.

The R.O.A.R. program prepares undergraduate College of Business students for their transition from college to career. This program focuses on career exploration, career planning, professionalism, networking, and mentorship, and consists of three phases: Find your ROAR, Refine your ROAR, and Ready to ROAR. Students are required to complete the phases in succession along with additional career development events and internships as a graduation requirement.

This position will teach classes in the areas of:
  • BAUD 3100 – ROAR Phase I
    • This course provides students with an understanding of their interests, skills, and values and helps them identify career pathways. Through research and self-assessment, students will learn about various career opportunities in business and develop a career plan.
  • BUAD 3200 – ROAR Phase II
    • This course provides students with opportunities to confirm their desired career pathway. This includes industry panels, informational interviews, and industry tours. Students will also learn the basics of resume writing, interview preparation, and internship/job search to ensure they are ready for experiential learning opportunities.
  • BUAD 3300 – ROAR Phase III
    • This course aids students in the transition from college to career. Students will engage in a variety of activities with industry experts to develop professionalism and networking skills.
Classes may be on-campus, online, or hybrid.

This is a revolving Lecturer Pool for the College of Business. If there is a course opening and your qualifications match a course and the minimum requirements, you may be contacted at that time.
