Valerie Bartelt Takes Research Spotlight

A rising star in the area of research in the College of Business Administration is Dr. Valerie Bartelt, Assistant Professor in the Department of Management, Marketing and Information Systems. Her research interests lie in information communication technologies in virtual teams, issues surrounding technology use and adoption and neuro-information systems.

Bartelt has a Ph.D. in information systems from Indiana University, Bloomington; a M.S. in business from Indiana University Kelley School of Business, Bloomington; a Master’s in immersive mediated environments, also from Indiana University, Bloomington; and a  B.A. from Wheaton College, in Wheaton, IL.  She is a member of Academy of Management (AOM), and the Association of Information Systems (AIS).

Valerie is currently serving as co-principal investigator for a $775,775 Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grant and is the Director of Operations at the Health Information Network of South Texas (HINSTX) for implementing a health information exchange system in healthcare facilities located in South Texas. She also serves on the executive committee for the HINSTX board.

Dr. Bartelt is well-published and authored a forthcoming article that will be published in The Management Information Systems Quarterly (MIS Quarterly), a top-tier quarterly, established in 1977, which  is widely regarded by IS researchers as one of the two most prestigious journals in the information systems discipline and is an official journal of the Association for Information Systems. In addition, she has a forthcoming article in Journal of Management Information Systems, which is also considered a top-tier journal in the IS field. She also has a recent article published in the Group Decisions and Negotiation Journal. 

Valerie is passionate about teaching and collaborating with students on research projects. One of her students, Amaree Amador, was named a McNair scholar.  “Last year, my professor, Dr. Valerie Bartelt, approached and encouraged me to apply for the McNair scholarship. She informed me that the program could help me get into graduate school and I immediately applied.  Dr. Bartelt was great to have as a mentor. Our research was about the behavioral and emotional influences of online shopping. It was a fun experience that I am grateful to have had,” said Amador.

We are proud to have such an aspiring faculty member in the College of Business Administration as we grow and strive for higher accreditation.
