I enjoy teaching topics that encourage students to think and to grow professionally and personally.

Mark Huber

Principal Lecturer

I want my students to gain an ability to appreciate and resolve ambiguous situations. Life doesn’t come with a syllabus. I don’t tell them what to think, but I challenge them to think about class materials and their connections to larger issues. My ideal student is one who is present and engaged in class and pushes me to help them stay that way, and students who ask, “Why?”

In addition to teaching in the MIS department, I am also the Co-director of the Teaching Academy’s Early Career Faculty mentoring program, Vice Chairperson of the UGA Teaching Academy Executive Committee, and was a UGA Center for Teaching and Learning Innovative Teaching Fellow. 

I currently teach courses in governance, risk, and information protection (cybersecurity), project management, infrastructure, leadership, and globalization. I’ve led multiple study abroad programs in England (Oxford), China, Chile, and Peru. I am honored to have won over 20 teaching and service awards including a UGA Creative Teaching Award (2019) and the UGA Career Center’s Lee Anne Seawell Faculty Recognition Award (2019).

I also completed a successful 21-year Air Force career, with assignments that included the creation and command of a Combat Communications Squadron and assignments at the Pentagon. I am a Past President of the Friends Chapter of Georgia’s Smithgall Woods State Park and a Board member of the Oconee River Land Trust. My hobbies include hiking, kayaking, skiing, and photography.
