APS Professor of MIS Susan Brown Named AIS Fellow
April 13, 2018
Susan Brown, APS Professor and head of the Department of Management Information Systems in the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona, has been given the Association of Information Systems (AIS) Fellow Award.
The award, presented in early December 2017 during a ceremony at the International Conference of Information Systems in Seoul, South Korea, recognizes outstanding contributions to the information systems field through research, teaching and service. Those honored as Fellows have made significant global contributions to the information systems discipline as well as outstanding local contributions in their countries and regions.
Brown’s contributions to AIS have included a variety of editorial positions in the field’s top journals, as well as significant roles in the association’s conferences. She is a 2016 recipient of the AIS Sandra Slaughter Service Award.
“Susan Brown is an exceptional scholar as she has a stellar publication record and still she has found the time to work in leadership roles in AIS conferences and her department and for mentoring doctoral students through doctoral consortia,” AIS President Matti Rossi said in a statement.
Brown joins three other Eller colleagues who have received AIS Fellow Awards: Paulo Goes, dean and Halle Chair in Leadership; Joe Valacich, professor of management information systems; and Jay Nunamaker, Regents’ Professor of Management Information Systems, Soldwedel Chair in Management Information Systems and director of the Center for the Management of Information.
