About the Author

Dr. Joe Sprangel is an associate professor of business at Mary Baldwin University. He is also the founder and principal consultant of Emmanuel Strategic Sustainability. He blends his academic and industry backgrounds to redefine the role of manufacturing - to an industry that efficiently and effectively balances environmental, financial, and social success that leads to more inclusive and sustainable local economies for all community members. He is active in thought leadership, where manufacturing plays a more substantial role as an integral element of a thriving community. His work explores opportunities to engage members of society who have not generally been considered employable. These individuals can be on the autism spectrum, handicapped, minorities, previously incarcerated, returning veterans, and women. The manufacturing industry has opportunities that can allow each citizen of the world to meet, at a minimum, their needs for just and healthy lives-one where manufacturing exists for a higher purpose far beyond making a profit for shareholders. He made the transition to higher education after 28 years of industry experience. His career included work in machine build and repair, machine design, manufacturing engineering, and plant and engineering management. That experience led to his interest in developing courses and programs emphasizing "learning while doing" assignments and projects that replicate the work done in the industry.Sprangel earned a Doctorate of Business Administration degree from Lawrence Technological University (LTU). He also holds degrees in Master of Business Administration from Spring Arbor University, a Bachelor of Business Administration from Eastern Michigan University, and an Associate Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology from LTU.
