Operations management professor Keenan Yoho has received the Cornell Distinguished Teaching in Crummer Award.

Yoho’s research specialties and applied work include helping organizations grapple with resource scarcity and other uncertain conditions through supply-chain cost modeling and operations management. He has advised numerous multinational corporations, including IBM, General Motors, and Intel, as well as the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and U.S. Transportation Command.

“I am actively engaged with the global special operations community and very attuned to the operational challenges and opportunities that we confront around the world, and many of the challenges are not dissimilar to those faced by commercial firms,” says Yoho. “I bring these perspectives into the classroom particularly when I am developing students to formulate and solve problems or develop designs that result in new experiences.”

Before joining Rollins in 2015, Yoho spent more than a decade leading change among senior management and in the private and public sectors. His work has been published in numerous journals, including the International Journal of Production Economics, the International Journal of Operations and Quantitative Management, and the Journal of Cost Analysis and Parametrics.

“I maintain active ties to both commercial industry and public service organizations that inform and enhance my teaching in the classroom as well as my published research,” he says. “I am very humbled and honored to receive the Cornell Distinguished Faculty Award in recognition of all these endeavors.”
