Associate Professor of Human Resource Management
Speakman Hall 316
Lynne received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior/Social Issues in Management from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her research, published in outlets such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review and Human Relations, focuses on the dark side of business organizations. In particular, she’s been examining some social maladies that are arguably associated with late capitalism (cynicism and incivility) as well as the role of social activism in countering capitalist barriers to sustainability.
Lynne teaches courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the area of Business, Society and Ethics, and has been lauded for her curricular innovation and ability to inspire critical thinking in her students. She was the recipient of the 2006 Andrisani-Frank Undergraduate Teaching Award and the 2005 Musser Excellence in Leadership Award for Teaching.
Active on campus, in her profession, and in the community, Lynne’s service engagements revolve around trying to stir things up, attempting to “ecologize” and “humanize” the business world and business education.
Lynne has been the SRB (Net Impact) Faculty Advisor since 2008.
