Professor Jane Dutton has won the lifetime achievement award from the Organizational Behavior Division of the Academy of Management. This award recognizes scholars who have made exceptional contributions to their discipline throughout their careers and have been published in top journals.

What’s more, it’s Dutton’s fourth such award. She also has won lifetime achievement or distinguished scholar awards from the Organization and Management Theory division, the Management and Organizational Cognition division, and the Organizational Development and Change division. That’s in addition to her general lifetime achievement award from the Academy of Management.

“No one worldwide has been recognized this broadly,” says Professor Sue Ashford, chair of Management & Organizations at Ross. “As one person told us this summer, ‘hockey has its hat trick, and the Academy of Management now has the Dutton.”

Other Ross faculty receiving honors:

Professor Gretchen Spreitzer was inducted into the Academy of Management Fellows, a group that includes less than 1 percent of academy members. Fellows must be nominated by someone outside their department, and membership is voted on by all sitting fellows. Spreitzer is the seventh professor in the Ross Management & Organizations area to be inducted.

Professor David Wooten received the Williams-Qualls-Spratlen Multicultural Mentoring Award of Excellence. This is awarded to a marketing professor who has made research and teaching contributions with a focus on mentoring students and professors from underrepresented groups.

Professor Joel Slemrod was elected president of the International Institute of Public Finance, the world’s preeminent academic institution for research in public policy. His three-year term places him atop an organization with 800 members from more than 50 countries.
