Suzanne Kitchen Profile

Suzanne and her coworkers.

“I bring contemporary resources into course material to demonstrate practical and useful skills.”

“As I was coming into the field of HR, the Americans with Disabilities Act had recently become a law. There were many opportunities to provide consulting, as well as training and development, to employers and businesses coming into compliance with the ADA. It was natural for me to step into those types of roles in HR.”

This eventually led her to earn an advanced degree and to move into higher education.

She says students studying in the areas of Management and General Business in the John Chambers College of Business and Economics will acquire degrees that are very flexible and customizable for a variety of different kinds of careers.

She is always looking for new ways to improve her students’ experiential education opportunities, including internships, service learning, individual or group simulations, real-life case studies, leadership opportunities and case competitions.

“It’s my hope that every student coming through our programs can answer these two questions: What did you LEARN? and What did you DO?”

About Mentoring

"Mentors played a big role in shaping my career in HR, as well as supporting my decision to move into higher education. As a professor, several mentors helped guide me to hone my teaching skill and my decision-making skill. In fact, they still do!!"
