Dr. John Eveland
Part-time Faculty - Glenn R. Jones College of Business
Hi! I’m Dr. JD Eveland and I’m an adjunct instructor in the College of Business Administration. I’m an organizational psychologist by training, and a teacher and research advisor by choice. I believe strongly in the potential for technology to effectively augment human capabilities and enable equitable and just societies. The social and political choices that we make now need to be based on the best understanding we can develop. That’s why I’ve committed so much of my life to making research both real and credible.
I’ve come to Trident this time through a long and sometimes winding career path through academia (nearly 30 years all told, at some eight or nine different institutions), government (National Science Foundation, Department of Health Education and Welfare), research (RAND Corporation, American Institutes for Research), and business (consulting to many different companies). I’ve been involved in online education at the graduate level since the late 1990s, and studying and applying information technology in organizations since the early 1970s. I was closely involved with Trident U. in its very early days. Whatever your topics and interests are, odds are I’ve been involved with them at one point or another over the years. I’ve chaired close to 50 doctoral committees over the years, so I know the system very well, and I’m committed to your success through the process.
I’m really looking forward to being back at Trident, sharing my skills and experiences where it’s useful and continuing to learn from both colleagues and students. The road goes ever on and on.
