Nationally recognized author Marianne Jennings will give this year's third Seaver College Dean's Distinguished Lecture on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 7 p.m. in Smothers Theatre on the Malibu campus. The lecture, titled "What Makes Really Smart and Good People Do Really Dumb and Unethical Things," is open to the public and free of charge.
Jennings earned her undergraduate degree in finance and her J.D. from Brigham Young University. She is a professor of legal and ethical studies at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. She has authored more than 150 articles in academic, professional, and trade journals, and at least eight textbooks and monographs including her most recent book, The Seven Signs of Ethical Collapse (2006). Another work, A Business Tale: A Story of Ethics, Choices, Success, and a Very Large Rabbit (2003), a fable about business ethics, was chosen by the Library Journal as its Business Book of the Year. Jennings's columns have been syndicated around the country, and her work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Reader's Digest.
