Mary Eisele Slack’s goal is to give students knowledge and skills they can apply in their jobs. She loves when students share how they used content from class in their jobs. In the leadership classes students discover and define what leadership means to them. In the project management classes, they create a project plan for the course. Seeing students’ progression through the semester and learning how to apply the methodology to their work projects is very rewarding. Slack likes to create learning opportunities that allow students to challenge themselves to make projects applicable to their professional or personal life.

Slack is a management consultant in human resource and organization development. She specializes in the areas of project management, management development, quality improvement, leadership development, and interpersonal skills. Slack has more than 20 years of corporate experience in training, administration, course development, and project management. She has worked with over 200 organizations.
