Susan Case, associate professor of organizational behavior, has been named an inaugural Kaufman Scholar for 2012-13 at the Center for Financial Policy of the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland.

The Kaufman Scholars will meet twice in fall 2012 and for a week in spring 2013 to examine religious traditions and financial and business behavior.

Case’s paper, “Guiding Lights for Morally Responsible Behavior in Organizations: Revisiting the Sacred Texts of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam,” earned a $3,000 prize and is under consideration for the Journal of Business and Religion. It is one of a series on traditional wisdom, ethics education, integrity and character that she has recently published or had accepted for publication.
