Dr. Hanora O’Sullivan’s interests in quality and productivity have led her to become a Virginia-based Baldrige Examiner, and she was invited to join the U.S. Baldrige examiners in 2009.

Her expertise in student learning outcomes assessment continues to lead to numerous conference and workshop presentations, articles, and pro-bono consultancy opportunities. Her ongoing focus on international management issues as well as her love of travel have resulted in investigations in more than 70 countries and have yielded both articles and innumerable course modules. During a sabbatical, she conducted research on comparative quality assurance standards between the United States and the European Union.
