Jonathan Westover

Utah Valley University
Academic Director, Center for Social Impact
Orem, Utah
I am an Associate Professor of Organizational Leadership and in the Woodbury School of Business and Academic Director of the Center for Social Impact. I am also a human capital leadership and performance management consultant, a CIPD Academic Fellow, and a HEA Senior Fellow. I was recently a Fulbright Scholar (Minsk, Belarus; Jakarta, Indonesia), a POSCO Fellow at the East-West Center (Honolulu, Hawaii; Washington D.C.), a Learning Innovation Research Fellow at the Institute of Teaching and Learning Innovation (University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia), an Educational Development Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Teaching and Learning (University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada), a Visiting Scholar at the Wilson Center (Washington, D.C.), and I am a regular visiting faculty member in other international graduate business programs (U.S., U.K., France, Belarus, Poland, and China). I am also a Melisa Nellesen Center for Autism Faculty Fellow, a Center for the Study of Ethics Faculty Fellow, a Global/Intercultural Faculty Fellow, a Service-Learning Faculty Fellow, and a Utah Valley Senior Executive Leadership Fellow.

I am passionate about teaching, love to conduct research, enjoy working with organizations in the community, and love writing in all styles—from academic, to professional, to op-ed, to other creative writing projects—and have been published widely in academic journals, books, magazines, and in popular media locally, nationally, and abroad (such as The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and USA Today). I have also been extensively quoted and cited as a management expert in popular press nationally and abroad and I enjoy my involvement in various service assignments and activities, both on and off of campus.

Additionally, I am program co-director of the Human Resource Management program, the faculty co-advisor for the UVU SHRM Student Chapter (Society for Human Resource Management), and am on the board of directors of the HR Certification Institute (HRCI). Please contact me directly if you are interested in exploring a career in human resource management or in becoming a part of the SHRM professional organization here on campus.
