I began teaching at St. Norbert in the fall of 1971. My interests focus on student learning and quality improvement in higher education, and value/supply chain management. I became the Social Science Division Chair (now designated as the Associate Dean of Social Sciences) from January, 1996 until June, 2003, and filled in as the Interim Associate Dean during the 2011-12 academic year. I retired from the Board of Directors for Faith Technology, Inc. (Appleton, Wis.) after 2005, and currently serve on the Board of Titletown Brewing Co. (Green Bay, Wis.).

I spent the Fall 2003 semester on a sabbatical as a visiting scholar at the Grainger Center for Supply Chain Management at the UW-Madison School of Business, working with the executive director, Dr. John R. Nevin. I am now attending to my faculty duties in the classroom and participating in the College governance activities as always. My teaching focus is the Capstone Seminar in Business, Policy and Strategy, and my elected committee work includes the Curriculum and Educational Policy Committee.
