Author Biography

As an undergraduate student, Jon Shepard discovered sociology. After graduating from Michigan State University with a Ph.D. in sociology, he taught introductory sociology and the sociology of organizations at the University of Kentucky. Now at Virginia Tech, he teaches economic sociology and business ethics. He is the author of 10 books and 40 plus professional journal articles. He has received teaching awards at both universities, including the University of Kentucky Great Teacher Award. He lives with his college sweetheart, Kay Vogel Shepard, in Blacksburg, Virginia. In Shepard's office Craig VanSandt, a friend and former graduate student, placed a plaque which reads, "Work is for those who can't play golf." Jon is a passionate golfer, but this axiom is an unremitting reminder that he should keep his day job.
