Eric Zackrison

Lecturer, Technology Management Program


Ph.D. (20t7) University of California at Santa Barbara Dissertation Tiflel. Organizational Coordination and Communication: The Development and Testing of an Integrative Model Advisors: David Seibold / Ron Rice Master of Arts (2011) Missouri State University

Teaching and Research Interests :

Coordination Leadership

Relationships and their impact on organizations and groups
Small Group Communication Organizational Communication Boundary Spanning Communication Behavioral Styles
The intersection of non-profit, for-profit, and civic leadership in the development of policy

I am particularly interested in the intersections of business, community non-profits, government, and stakeholders within those contexts and how those relationships work together to attain goals I approach research from an applied perspective, seeing a need for research to be grounded not only in theory but also to have real world application.
