Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD in social work from McGill University in 1986, my MSc in Management (Organizational Behaviour) from Tel Aviv University in 1977, and my BA in Social Work from Tel Aviv University in 1973.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work, University of Windsor (1984-1987).
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
My current writing projects are related to qualitative research methodology, and to institutional theory and organizational practice.
