The Engaging Educator Award goes to professors who go above and beyond to engage their students with research and the community.
Trisha Anderson, Ph.D., associate professor of management, connects her students with global companies like TTI, Lockheed Martin and Fed Ex so they can get a first-hand look at production management. Anderson has been doing this with her undergraduate and MBA students for the past five years. This semester, the class will visit JPS Hospital and The Capital Grille.
Connecting students with area businesses is important to our AACSB accreditation and critical to preparing students for professional careers.
