Kathy Lund Dean


Board of Trustees Distinguished Chair in Leadership and Ethics in Economics and Management

Although always good to be home, my Erskine Fellowship at the University of Canterbury was amazing and a huge challenge to successfully bring experiential learning methods to the Organizational Behavior course and its 200 students. The faculty in the College of Business & Law were so welcoming and helpful. The diversity course I also team taught will be a great one to bring back to Gustavus students.

It's live! My co-editor Jeanie Forray and I launched Management Teaching Review in June 2015! Its mission is to publish short, targeted, and immediately useful teaching tools and resources for management educators. A companion to the Journal of Management Education, it is the OBTS Teaching Society for Management Educator's latest initiative!

This summer I will be telling the Gustavus story far and wide at meetings, research initiatives, and service work outside Minnesota. After the OBTC Teaching Conference for Management Educators at University of LaVerne, the Journal of Management Education is co-hosting the UnConference in partnership with the Eastern Academy of Management's international meeting in Lima, Peru in June. August brings an alumni gathering in the Seattle/Puget Sound area, hosted by Kari Petrasek '99, and then the international Academy of Management meeting in Vancouver, BC. Later in August, I head to Ireland for the 2nd of my three year term as the MSc in Management external examiner for Maynooth University. Giving a research seminar while there allows me to represent Gustavus to the Irish and UK communities.

I will be keeping my Economics and Management blog going, so please visit it!
