Faculty Development

As a potential new faculty member, we know there are often good questions to ask about faculty development, including typical teaching loads, criteria for promotion, and other forms of faculty support.
  • Department Workload Policy
    This document outlines the range of teaching, research, and service responsibilities within the department. Deep within that document, don't miss the note about how we will typically offer an automatic one-course reduction per year for each of the first two years for a new faculty member.
  • Advancement through Promotion and Tenure
    Saint Louis University offers avenues for professional advancement for both tenure-track and non-tenure track faculty members. The procedures and criteria are described in the context of:
  • The faculty manual also provide more general discussion of employment expectations, policy on leaves, and other important aspects of life as a faculty manual.


Your Colleagues

In joining our department, you won't be alone! We have an excellent and collegial group of faculty to welcome you. For more details, explore the faculty profiles.
Furthermore, since computer science is an enabler for advancement in so many areas, our computer science faculty have opportunities to find collaborations within the broader University, including its excellent School of Medicine, Parks College of Engineering, School of Business, Law School, Center for Digital Humanities, and the many other departments found at SLU.

St. Louis Region

The Greater St. Louis Region is an excellent place to live, and our Human Resources department is excited to provide their own "Relocation Guide" with a variety of information about the area, and SLU's support for new employees.
Since they've already done that, we'll offer a more computing-focussed introduction to our city. St. Louis has an outstanding and ever-growing tech industry, as home to world headquarters for many large corporations, and home to the IT headquarters for many additional companies.  Some big names in terms of CS employment in the area currently include (alphabetically):  Anheuser-Busch/InBev, Boeing, Centene, Citi Cards, Enterprise, Express Scripts, KPMG, MasterCard, Microsoft, Monsanto, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, Riot Games, Scottrade, SSM Health, and World Wide Technology.
But it's not just the big corporations that love the city. St. Louis has a vibrant entreprenuer community including several prominent incubators such as the CORTEX Innovation Community, which is literally a few blocks from the west end of our campus, and the T-Rex Incubator, found just over 2 miles to our East, in downtown St. Louis.
