Sandra Shelton, who earned a Ph.D. from the Wisconsin School of Business and has been a professor of accounting at DePaul University since 1994, was recently inducted into The Ph.D. Project’s Hall of Fame.

Shelton was recognized for her leadership within The Ph.D. Project, her commitment to serving as a role model to undergraduate and doctoral students, and her efforts to identify and recruit faculty of color at DePaul. Shelton has been involved with The Ph.D. Project in many roles since its inception in 1994.

The Ph.D. Project was established to promote diversity on business school faculties as a way of encouraging minorities to pursue business education. Since 1994, the organization has helped increase the number of African American, Hispanic, and Native American business professors in the U.S. from 294 to 1,230.

Shelton was honored at The Ph.D. Project’s annual conference in November.
