Dr. Elizabeth Doherty, formerly Associate Dean and Director of MBA & MPA Programs, continues to serve as Professor of Management for the School of Management at Marist College. She received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and M.S.W. from Washington University in St. Louis and graduated with her B.A., cum laude in Chemistry and Biology from Lawrence University in Appleton Wisconsin. Prior to joining Marist, Dr. Doherty was Dean of Business & Information Management at Neumann University and Department Chair of Management and faculty at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. In addition, she has held faculty appointments at the University of Nevada, Reno and Tulane University.
Dr. Doherty's scholarship reflects an overarching interest in the well being and dignity of humans at work. She uses an historical, interdisciplinary approach to investigate how images of work, workers, and work experiences from the arts and humanities have something to say about human dignity, the meaning of work, and the employer-employer relationship, especially when compared to the voice of management scholars. Her research assumes that the arts and humanities can provide organizational scholars and practitioners with new insights toward understanding and improving human experiences in work organizations. See her recent works in Journal of Management Inquiry, Management & Organizational History and Journal of Management History for more insights on this topic.
Dr. Doherty continues to provide leadership and service to the community in many ways. For example, she served with the United States Peace Corps in the Philippines as a Community Health Development volunteer and trainer; conducted strategic planning and change initiatives with her parish; served on the Board of Directors for Big Sisters of Philadelphia; worked as a court appointed special advocate for abused and neglected children; and is currently on the Board of Directors for Arts Mid-Hudson.
Dr. Doherty has a passion for the arts and dabbles as a painter and sculptor. She enjoys traveling and discovering other cultures, swimming, yoga, and sports.
