Mike Crant, the Mary Jo and Richard M. Kovacevich Professor of Excellence in Leadership Instruction at the University of Notre Dame, has been appointed to an international business research panel to review grant proposals. Crant is one of 35 members to serve on the panel, which is responsible for assessing applications for research grants on the basis of peer review.

The Research Grant Council (RGC) is part of Hong Kong’s University Grants Committee and advises on the funding and strategic development of higher education in Hong Kong. The RGC relies on “subject panels to ensure impartiality and effective use of resources when considering research grants.” Selected international experts come from an array of academic institutions and do not represent their respective universities, but instead are chosen for their background and renowned expertise

Crant will serve a three-year term on the Research Grant Council’s Business Studies Panel. He was selected by the RGC for his expertise in organizational behavior, proactive personality and behavior, voice behavior, creativity and impression management.

Crant teaches courses about leadership, management, teams and decision making to undergraduate, MBA and Executive MBA students at the Mendoza College of Business. He has won teaching awards in both undergraduate and graduate programs. He has conducted numerous executive development seminars for companies worldwide, including Bayer, Canon, HSBC, LANXESS, Siemens, Donnelly, Mondelez International, the Far Eastern Group and Toro.
