IV. Service to the University and Community

A. Throughout my faculty and administrative endeavors, I severed and attended a huge number of campus-wide events such as Campus Visitation Events, Founders Day, Awards Day, freshmen and general convocations and orientation, graduations, Tillman School of Business (TSB) adjunct and committee meetings, search committees, faculty interviews,and I have supported and continue to support many events and games sponsored by the School of Arts and Sciences. 
 

B. I am the current Site Administrator for Pearson Vue Testing.  Manage/administer testing facility and proctor exams. Example of proctor schedule: Sept 2013. Testing facility at Mount Olive is part of the Strategic Plan: - SPPVT.PDF, application March 2012. Project took over one year to complete; thus, many hours of service went to formulating hardware/software requirements, then piloting and implementing the facility. I continue to administer the facility which has tested over 100 candidates since August 2013. I personally dedicate over 50 hours of work annually to oversee the success of the testing facility.  To reiterate- the testing center increases the visibility and enhances marketing opportunities, is a convenience of stakeholders, and utilizes existing infrastructure to support professional certification testing. 

 C. Administrative Positions  

  • MIS Program Chair- 2013 to 2014. Example of Responsibilities.

  • Accounting Chair- 2012 to 2013. Example of Responsibilities.

  • MIS Program Coordinator- 2011 to 2012. Responsibilities were similar to Program Chair position.

  • CIS/Accounting Chair- 2007- 2011.  Responsibilities included many items in Program Chair responsibilities but more extensive (e.g., advising, scheduling, assessment and compliance with ACBSP accreditation and SACS, SACS reports, budeting (SPOL), faculty evaluations and credentialing, curriculum development, steering committee, teaching, assisting with registration, orientation, and on-campus student visitations, awards ceremonies, site visitations, focus group meetings, etc.).

 D. Curriculum Development

  • Fall 2013. I initiated with my fellow colleagues the development and implementation of MBA MIS 640 (Information Management Systems) by mapping course objectives to Peregrine Common Professional Components (CPCs)- won accolades from Dean Ron Pressley.  More importantly, a special class project was implemented whereby students design a web-based tutorial which helps learners accomplish the CPCs.

  • 2013- Revamped the CIS minor to appeal to non-MIS majors by emphasizing courses that track to professional certifications (i.e., Project+ Certification) .

  • 2012- As the Program Chair for Accounting, our accounting faculty merged ACC 205 and ACC 305 into one course while still accomplishing ACBSP accreditation requirements.  Not only did this free up resources, but also (except for the accounting major) all other TSB programs gained an extra course in the major.

  • 2009- Based on a report in a graduate-level accounting class which disclosed over-emphasis on public accounting and preparation for the CPA exam, I implemented a course in Fraud Examination which maps to the burgeoning Association of Certified Fraud Examiner’s certification.    

  • 2008- When Chair of the CIS and Accounting Department, and application to Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) was made, I helped to develop the common core- a set of courses required for all TSB business majors.
