Molly Eckman is a professor in the Department of Design and Merchandising in the College of Applied Human Sciences at Colorado State University. She teaches courses on international retailing, retail math, textile and apparel economics and trade, and social responsibility in the global apparel supply chain. We are proud to announce Professor Eckman as a 2012 Best Teacher.
After 10 years in corporate retailing, she received her M.S. from Iowa State University and her Ph.D. from the University of Maryland. Her research interests include the effect of culture on consumer behavior and business practices, internationalization of retailing, and social responsibility in global apparel production.
From the nominations:
"Professor Eckman is committed to teaching students valuable lessons that are needed both in and outside of the classroom and necessary to succeed in future careers. Not only was I prepared for assignments and exams, but I've recently run into a conflict of interest at the workplace with social responsibility. I was able to recall concepts like 'the vicious cycle' and incorporate what I have learned about responsible sourcing and workers rights into my actual job." -- Amy King ('11)
The Colorado State University Alumni Association and its affiliate student group, the Student Alumni Connection, recognize outstanding CSU educators each year with Best Teacher Awards.
This year, six CSU teachers were selected from 100 nominations.
