Jerry Griffin

Contributing Faculty
College of Management and Human Potential
B.S. Business Administration (BSBA)

One of my first adventures in life was a tour of duty with the U.S. Marine Corps. After, leaving the Marine Corps (although you never leave the Marine Corps) I spent several years as a Tulsa Police Office, a U.S. Treasury agent, and earned an MBA from Southern Methodist University.
In case you are wondering how a police officer ends up with Management degrees and a Doctorate in Education (The University of Tulsa) you have to remember that great principal of management. All organizations are the same – be it a police department, an international conglomerate, or a few people selling chickens in Botswana.
I also have 8 years of teaching experience as an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Southwest Texas State University and Wichita State University.
I have one major publication by a New York Publishing House entitled Machiavelli on Management: Playing and Winning the Corporate Power Game. It has also been published in Portuguese and Japanese.
I am busy writing my second book and have a third in the planning stages - I love all types’ music and most often have it playing in the background.
I am a single dad/mom raising my 12 3/4-year old daughter – who is in 7th Grade. I am also in my 3rd and final year of law school. It has been different – to be a student again – but it has also given me a better understanding of what some of you might be feeling. This will be my 4th and final degree (I think).
