January 10, 2007

Jane Fedorowicz, Rae D. Anderson Professor of Accountancy and Information Systems at Bentley College, was recently named a Fellow of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) at the annual International Conference of Information Systems in Milwaukee. Fedorowicz joins two other Bentley faculty members who have been named AIS Fellows; M. Lynne Markus (2004), Poduska Professor of Information Management; and Robert Galliers (2003), provost and vice president for academic affairs. Bentley is one of two schools in the world to have three faculty members named AIS Fellows.

The AIS Fellows award was established in 1999 to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to information systems research, teaching and service, and who also are role models and an inspiration to colleagues and students within the discipline. An AIS Fellow is also known to have made significant global and local contributions in the area of IS. There are currently only 40 AIS Fellows worldwide.

Fedorowicz holds a joint appointment in the Accountancy and Information and Process Management departments at Bentley. As a principal investigator on a National Science Foundation project, she is currently leading research focused on improving the design of public safety networks.

She was principal investigator for the Bentley Invision Project, an international research team examining interorganizational information sharing and coordination infrastructures in supply chains, government, and healthcare. Fedorowicz has published more than 100 articles and books, and serves on the editorial boards of several information systems research journals. She has served in a governance capacity for several professional associations including INFORMS, the AICPA, the American Accounting Association and AIS. Within AIS, she spent two terms as Vice President of Chapters and Affiliated Organizations, initiating many national relationships to strengthen the organization's international presence. Fedorowicz earned Master of Science and PhD degrees in Systems Sciences from Carnegie-Mellon University and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Connecticut.
