Panelist Bio


Andrew Schwarz
Associate Professor in the Information Systems and Decision Sciences Department E. J. Ourso College of Business Administration Louisiana State University

Dr. Andrew Schwarz joined the LSU faculty in 2003 after receiving his Ph.D. from the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston.

From a research perspective, his research fits into three broad areas:

  1. Emerging Technologies (including social networks, Web 2.0, and Cloud Computing)
  2. End user adoption of IT (including sub-themes of acceptance, adoption, and use)
  3. IT Management (including sub-themes of alignment, outsourcing, and governance)


From a teaching perspective, his focus on social networking is reflected in the topics he discusses while instructing his undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students on IT management topics. He is also involved in Executive Education programs both at LSU and internationally, where he has taught in universities in Paris, Austria, and Germany. Beyond the classroom, Andrew engages frequently with the business community as a consultant, having worked with organizations such as IBM and Cutter Consulting on various research initiatives.

He is also involved in service to the academic community as the Vice President of Technology for the Association for Information Systems. Additionally, he serves as an Associate Editor for the European Journal of Information Systems and a Senior Editor for The DATA BASE for Advances in Information Systems.

Prior to his career in academia, Andrew worked as a Senior Project Director at a large market research organization. His clients included SAP, Baan, and HP, as well as other Fortune 500 firms, including Kraft, Kellogg's, Ritz Carlton, Marriott, the Coca-Cola Company, and Energizer. He received his undergraduate degree in Social Psychology from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida.

He and his family attend the Chapel in the Oaks church. He is married and has two sons and a daughter on the way.

Current Topic


     02/18 - Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana

How widespread is the problem in our state? Take the survey!
Governor John Bel Edward’s deputy chief of staff, Johnny Anderson, resigned in November due to allegations of sexual harassment. A month earlier, celebrity chef John Besh stepped down from his restaurant management group after sexual harassment accusations. Charges of sexual misconduct in the workplace against celebrities and government officials made state and national headlines during the last several months of 2017.

How widespread is the problem in our state? Where is the distinction drawn between boorish acts and abusive behavior? Is every circumstance unique or should all offenders be dealt with in the same manner? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “Drawing the Line: Sexual Harassment in Louisiana” Wednesday, February 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, February 27)

Panelists:
- Sen. Sharon Hewitt, R-Slidell; Senate Select Committee on Women and Children
- Craig Broome; Louisiana Society of Human Resource
- Janice Lansing, Chairperson of Governor Edwards’ Sexual Harassment & Discrimination Policy Task Force
- Allison A. Jones; attorney; Downer, Jones & Wilhite in Shreveport
