LSU Construction Management Program Growing to Support Increased Demand

The following exerpt from the article outlines an innovative way that LSU is addressing the shortage of teaching professionals:

“To make ends meet faculty-wise, the department not long ago introduced a “professional in residence” program, a three-year term Rosso likens to a “glorified instructorship,” though in this case the “instructor,” who’s free to re-up after the third year, is required to have a master’s degree and at least 10 years of experience in the industry.

“It’s kind of the industry’s answer to a sabbatical,” he says.

“It fills the gaps.”Professionals in residence enhance the program’s teaching pool, composed of full-time and adjunct faculty and part-time instructors, says Rosso, who has taught construction management at LSU since 1980. The department has grown from four full-time faculty members in the mid-1980s to 12 full-timers today, in addition to several other part-time, adjunct and professional members of the teaching staff. “
