Faculty serving in the Cyber College apply their academic expertise to the development of curriculum for graduate students, teach non-resident and/or in-resident classes, and participate, as required, in activities that support the school's and Air University's courses of cyber studies. Faculty members may also teach elective courses and advise student research projects. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the cyber program, faculty may be required to teach across other disciplines within the school. Student population includes U.S. and partner nation military members and U.S. federal civilian employees. Course delivery formats vary across types of programs, including resident and non-resident courses, but typical courses involve faculty-guided discussion-based seminars of 6-15 students.
Faculty are expected to pursue an active research agenda in the areas of expertise related to cyberspace. Faculty plan and conduct research as necessary to support curriculum development and refinement. Research should follow with the pursuit to publish in professional academic and military journals and other commercial and government publications. In addition to personal research and student research advising, faculty may participate in the Research Task Force where faculty members and students collaborate to solve contemporary problems related to cyber warfare and answer research questions posed by leaders of operational military units.
Faculty perform service roles to support the Air Force Cyber College and Air University as academic institutions. Service roles may include providing advice and counsel to Course Directors, Department Directors, and Deans on topics related to cyber warfare and academic affairs, reviewing and providing opinions on draft Department of Defense publications, serving on peer review committees, and performing outreach to partner with peer institutions.
