Dr. Heather Getha-Taylor, associate professor in the KU School of Public Affairs and Administration, has been selected as a Hubert Project Fellow for 2017. The Hubert Project provides funding and support to create open-source multimedia learning materials that address contemporary public and nonprofit management topics: https://www.hubertproject.org/.
Dr. Getha-Taylor’s case, “Ripe for Change: Just Food’s Recovery after Executive Misconduct” will detail the Lawrence food bank’s experience with executive fraud and present lessons learned on addressing and recovering from employee misconduct. Special emphasis will be given to identifying the organizational issues that may offer the potential for misconduct and recommendations for preventing and addressing similar events in other nonprofit organizational contexts. KU MPA student Heather Odell will contribute to the development of the e-case.
Dr. Getha-Taylor joins Susan Appe (Binghamton University), Cheryl Camillo (University of Regina), and Alicia Schatteman (Northern Illinois University) in this year’s cohort of Hubert Project Fellows.
