Dr. Carolyn C. Matheus

Associate Professor of Information Systems


Dr. Carolyn C. Matheus is an Associate Professor of Information Systems and Director of the Honors Program at Marist College. She holds a PhD in Organizational Studies with a concentration in leadership from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Albany, and earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from Marist College. 

Her undergraduate and graduate coursework mirror her research streams, focusing on systems analysis and design, human computer interaction, data and information quality, data analytics, and project management. She serves as an internship coordinator for Computer Science and Information Technology/Systems students, assisting students in building their resumes and developing interviewing skills, as well as developing and maintaining relationships with alumni and companies who provide internships and jobs to students. 

Dr. Matheus leads numerous faculty-student research projects, many as part of Honors Program projects. She has collaborated with the Emerging Leadership program by offering a seminar on authentic leadership, and in 2019 was the recipient of The National Society of Leadership and Success award for Excellence in Teaching. She has worked extensively with Marist International Program, co-developing and leading an annual service-learning program in which Computer Science and Spanish students collaborated to host a technology education summer camp for junior high students in the Dominican Republic.
