1.  What is  Normal, Illinois, like? 
ISU is located in Normal, Illinois (adjacent to  Bloomington) and is 45 
minutes East of Peoria, 45 minutes West of Champagne, 2  hours South of Chicago, 2 
hours East of St. Louis, and 2 1/2 hours West of  Indianapolis.  While  
Bloomington/Normal is a small Midwestern city, we have all of the comforts of a  
typical college town with a low violent crime rate and extremely affordable cost  
of living. 
What will the position  require? 
The Director of Debate position will be responsible for  the everyday coac
hing and management of our growing policy debate program.   Currently we have 
three teams.  The DoD will be expected to recruit from  high schools, conduct 
practice debates, oversee research assignments, manage the  debate paperwork, 
organize debate squad and team meetings, recruit and oversee a  graduate 
assistant, plan and prepare a tournament schedule, attend and coach at  tournaments, 
and other duties typically associated with coaching debate at this  level. 
Will I get to teach? 
Yes.  The position is a non-tenure-track (NTT)  position that involves 
teaching 2 courses a semester in addition to coaching  responsibilities.  The types 
of courses taught will mainly be introductory  classes. 
Will this be my  program? 
Yes and No.  The DoD will be responsible for the  items listed above.  
Discretionary power will reside with the DoD on  coaching and administrative issues 
provided they are consistent with the overall  Forensics program at ISU.  ISU 
has a dual IE/debate Forensics program, and  the DoD reports directly to me as 
the Director of Forensics.  In other  words, the DoD will be working closely 
with me as the program develops and  grows.   
What is the salary? 
Normal is a very, very, very inexpensive place to live.  The  salary for this 
position is competitive with other similar positions relative to  
cost-of-living.  It is also negotiable.  Talk to me personally about  this. 
What are the benefits like? 
For more information on ISU employee benefits, you can go  to the ISU Human 
Resources page at _http://www.hr.ilstu.edu/_ (http://www.hr.ilstu.edu/) .  
Benefits are highly competitive with other State  universities.  The DoD will 
receive full medical and health insurance, as  well as other standard benefits. 
Any other questions????  Please ask me!    I hope to talk to folks at the 
tournaments listed above, or feel free to email  me!
