Maynes receives Plesur award

Published May 22, 2014

Timothy Maynes, assistant professor of organization and human resources in the School of Management, has received the Milton Plesur Excellence in Teaching Award from the undergraduate Student Association.

The annual award recognizes outstanding professors who create an atmosphere of creativity, enthusiasm and participation in their classrooms. Students nominate instructors who have inspired, excited or positively affected them from across the university.

The honor is named for a beloved UB history professor, author and scholar who died in 1987.

Maynes joined the School of Management faculty last fall after earning his doctorate from Indiana University. He holds master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Brigham Young University.

His research interests include organizational effectiveness, employee productivity and performance, and the factors that lead to employee-driven innovation and change.

Maynes is a member of the Academy of Management and the Society for Industrial-Organizational Psychology.
