Texas A&M University-Kingsville just got an approval for a new $60 million building. Plus, the students and faculty there are fantastic. If you can handle the hot weather, it's a great place to be.

Im not sure of the details yet but if everything's sticks to how it has been said, Ithaca (NY) may be looking for a full time there. So if anyone is interested, be on the lookout for that. Justin Benavidez is only signed on for a year from what I have been hearing

Tenure Status: Non-Tenure Track
FTE: 1.0

Anyone know what the heck this is about? I read that this is a "new" school that is being formed by combining two existing universities. One of them already has a Tuba/Euph teacher at the Assistant Professor level. Why would they hire a 9-month lecturer for this position when someone is already there?
