SendziolThe College of Business is delighted to welcome a new faculty member, Dr. Dana
Sendziol, to the CUC community. Dr. Sendziol was previously an Associate Professor at Concordia University Portland. Her course offerings included undergraduate-level courses, Introduction to Business and Ethical Leadership (curriculum designer), as well as graduate-level courses, Managing Organizational Change (curriculum designer), Strategic Management, and the MBA Capstone (business planning and organizational assessment). She has also taught leadership, organizational management, and communications in various professional and volunteer capacities. Teaching and mentoring students in a faith-based institution of higher learning aligns to her values and enables her to demonstrate servant leadership as a lived and embodied expression of her beliefs. Her research agenda continues to evolve those expressions of servant-led collaboration in scholarship, innovation, and the exploration of meaningful work to engage a better society.

As a doctoral fellow in the College of Education at The University of Texas at Austin (UT), her research centered on management education, adult development theory, transformational leadership, servant leadership , and managerial competencies within the enterprise. During her fellowship at UT, she served as Research Assistant at National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development and Center for Community College Student Engagement. Additionally, she facilitated programming for the Hatton W. Summers Student Leadership Conference, through the Center for Ethical Leadership in the LBJ Center for Public Affairs. This conference drew participants from colleges and universities across the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

In addition to her terminal degree, she holds an MBA with dual concentrations in management and marketing from Loyola University Chicago, additional doctoral coursework in adult education and learning theory from Northern Illinois University, as well as doctoral coursework in management theory from McCombs School of Business at UT.

She is a Certified Personal Resilience Practitioner for the Resilience Alliance, a
non-profit organization headquartered in Decatur, GA. She also serves as chair for the Psychology in the Workplace Network (PWN) for the American Psychological Association Center for Organizational Excellence, Idaho State. She holds membership in these organizations as well as affiliation with the Academy of Management.

Dr. Sendziol joins the COB faculty as an Associate Professor, and will focus on teaching MBA courses for her first semester on campus.
