A Message from Miguel R. Olivas-Lujan, MED Division Chair

Miguel R. Olivas-Lujan, Ph.D., Clarion University - Program Chair, MED Division

Miguel R. Olivas-Lujan, Ph.D., Clarion University – Chair-Elect, MED Division

MED has been my home division since I was a PhD student because it helps me “walk the talk!”

A central theme in many of my courses is reflection, verification, ensuring that managerial policies have the intended effect. I know I am not alone when I say that, as a PhD student, I did not receive any training on how to pass on to students the knowledge I acquired or learned to generate. MED’s professional development workshops (PDWs) are one of the most useful features of the AOM annual conferences that have helped me better understand how my work can be better received by my students, at different levels, face-to-face or online.

As an author, MED has also offered me opportunities to present papers, PDWs, serve and learn from my colleagues —and now even serve in the 5-year leadership sequence. Every year I look forward to learning from others and to sharing my work with like-minded individuals, some of whom I’ve met recently and others for more than a decade. Much is talked about how those of us who have received much are responsible for giving back as well… it’s my privilege and my honor to give back a little to an organization that has helped me so much!
