Biography

It has been my privilege to serve on the faculty of the Management Department at Miami University since 1991. Prior to coming here, I attended and received a Ph.D. from the New York State School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University. My graduate studies at Cornell followed a number of years of doing social work with former patients of psychiatric hospitals.

My teaching and research are in the areas of employment law, labor relations, human resource management, and organizations. Common threads that tie together my various academic and professional experiences include abiding concerns for fairness, for peaceful and just resolution of conflicts, and for the well-being and dignity of those with “less” – whether they are the former patients of large state psychiatric hospitals deinstitutionalized into communities that did not want them or workers all around the world laboring for scant rewards and often risking their own safety and health.
