UM Faculty Senate Names Yadong Luo Distinguished Faculty Scholar
January 30, 2009
The University of Miami Faculty Senate has selected Yadong Luo, the School’s Emery Findley Distinguished Chair and professor of management, as this year’s recipient of the Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award. The Faculty Senate created the award to recognize outstanding contributions to scholarship by individual faculty members.
Luo is a world-renowned scholar in the field of international management with a distinguished record of scholarly productivity and seminal contributions to the field. Last June, the Asia Pacific Journal of Management cited Luo as the most prolific author of articles published in six leading international business journals.
“Yadong has emerged as the world’s top research scholar in international management,” said Barbara E. Kahn, dean of the School of Business Administration. “His publication record includes sixteen scholarly books and well over 100 articles in major refereed business journals – including more than two dozen articles in the leading journals in international business and in management. This is truly a remarkable achievement.”
School of Business faculty members have now received two of the three 2009 faculty awards presented by the Faculty Senate. In November, the Faculty Senate named Anita Cava, associate professor of business law, as the recipient of its 2009 Outstanding Teaching Award. Cava, who is also co-director of the UM Ethics Programs, will receive her award in a ceremony Monday, March 30. The Faculty Senate will honor Luo with the Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award at a ceremony on Monday, April 27.
