As first ‘James Keyes dean,' Linda Salchenberger makes outreach a top priority

When Linda Salchenberger began this academic year as dean of Marquette University's College of Business Administration, she brought with her strong ideas on the importance of outreach to the business community.
Salchenberger left Northwestern University in Chicago to accept the position of dean at Marquette because of the university's stature in the academic community and alumni base.
Both of these aspects provide opportunities for outreach to the business community, one of Salchenberger's primary goals as dean. She hopes to achieve her goal through programs and partnerships that allow students to have closer connections with area businesses and also allow businesses to give faculty input on the types of skills they want in prospective employees. An extension of such outreach would be increased visibility of the college, joint ventures with businesses and increased fundraising, Salchenberger said.
The college has 67 full-time faculty members, 1,567 undergraduates and 687 graduate students.
With outreach, "you start at home, but I'm also interested in looking regionally, nationally and internationally," Salchenberger said. "Some alumni have already indicated opportunities, as they expand their businesses internationally, to provide education."
The college has an international business major and 25 percent of students study abroad. To encourage such studies, Salchenberger is leading an internal discussion on a potential partnership with a school in Asia for a student exchange program that would allow students to learn about the financial systems in other countries.
Local business input
Locally, Salchenberger has been meeting with representatives from area companies, such as Brady Corp. and Kohl's Corp., about internships, case studies, networking and business input for academic program development. Her outreach ideas were one aspect Marquette's search committee found especially appealing.
Salchenberger is Marquette's first "James Keyes dean," a position created in November 2007 and funded by a donation from James Keyes, the retired chairman of Johnson Controls Inc. who has strong ties to Marquette.
In the spring, Salchenberger will create a process for faculty members to apply for funding. In awarding funds, she will look for projects that have new ideas on research and integrating material into the curriculum in areas such as corporate and social responsibility, she said.
Promotes women in business
Salchenberger, 59, is the first Keyes dean and the college's first female dean. She also was the only woman in her Ph.D. cohort class at Northwestern University. Based on such experiences, Salchenberger has chosen to be active in promoting science, math and business careers for women. Through Loyola University in Chicago, she held three summer Web camps for young girls between 2003 and 2005, and participated in career awareness events at high schools. Salchenberger also worked with women entrepreneurs in Chicago to help them start their own businesses. Through Loyola's Center for Information Management and Technology and a partnership with MIT Enterprise Forum, a Chicago entrepreneurship outreach organization, Salchenberger provided programs for women on issues such as leadership, overcoming gender bias, and how to raise capital for a business.
Since her start in business education, Salchenberger has seen the business community evolve.
"Over time, business schools have learned they need to be both responsive and responsible," she said. "Responsive to the needs of business — I've watched the gap between the academy and the business community narrow — and responsible to make sure we graduate students with great technology and leadership skills and who are socially responsible. Everyday we see stories about ethical issues that affect all of us. It's our job to develop ethics (in students) early on."

Dr. Linda M. Salchenberger, associate dean of academics in Northwestern University's School of Continuing Studies, has been named the Keyes Dean of Marquette's College of Business Administration and the Graduate School of Management, Interim Provost David Shrock announced today.
A senior lecturer in Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management, Salchenberger holds an MBA and a Ph.D. in managerial economics and decision sciences from Northwestern.A graduate of Mundelein College, she earned a master's degree in mathematics from the Illinois Institute of Technology.
Prior to joining Northwestern in 2004, Salchenberger spent the majority of her academic career at Loyola University in Chicago, where she held many faculty and administrative positions, including professor of information systems and serving as associate dean of the School of Business Administration and associate vice president for academic affairs and faculty administration.
"Dr. Salchenberger impressed the search committee and others in the university with the breadth of her experience, her commitment to continued growth for the college and her collaborative approach," said Shrock, who served as dean of the college from 1999 until his appointment as interim provost in December 2007.
Salchenberger, who founded the Center for Information Management and Technology at Loyola, has published extensively on the various applications of neural networks, community technology and the role of gender in information technology.She has received millions of dollars in grants to support her research and has engaged the business community and corporate partners in multiple initiatives, including funding technology projects for girls.
In pursuing the deanship, Salchenberger expressed admiration and respect for the Jesuit tradition of scholarship and learning and a desire to strengthen ties and pursue new opportunities with the business community as a way to enhance students' educational experience and better prepare them for the global environment."Today's university is more than just a partner in the economic, cultural and social development of the community; it must be the driver, in congruence with its tradition, history and mission," she said.
Salchenberger will succeed Dr. Dennis Garrett, associate professor of marketing, who has served as interim dean for the College of Business Administration since January, following the appointment of Shrock as interim provost.
Shrock said the endowed deanship will give Salchenberger increased opportunities to attract faculty and create new programs.
