Hiring a professor of practice offers many benefits for educational institutions. Such professors bring real-world experience and valuable industry connections to the classroom. They can also provide students with hands-on advice and perspectives on the job market that traditional professors lack. In addition, professors of practice are often well-respected in their fields and bring industry-leading knowledge to the classroom. This can help to bolster the institution’s reputation and attract more students. Finally, professors of practice can help to bridge the gap between academia and the professional world, as they can provide students with a smooth transition from the classroom to the workplace.
CITE has developed a database of such industry professionals and leaders who are willing to work for our member universities.
