Associate Professor Dennis Slattery has been on the faculty since Fall 2003. Dennis brings a wide range of experience and skills to the School of Business. Professor Slattery had a 20 year career as a hotel executive before returning to SOU to pick up the necessary classes to sit for the CPA exam and to add an MBA in 1997. After certification in public accounting, Dennis started his own accounting business before getting the teaching bug and joining the School of Business faculty.

Dennis loves teaching and working with the students, something he believes springs from the fact that he comes from three generations of teachers. Whether teaching in the classroom or advising or helping students make life decisions Dennis considers this the most fun he has ever had in a career - and he has enjoyed them all!

Over the past 30 years, Dennis has been very active in the community. He has served on the board of directors of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce and was twice elected president of the Chamber. Dennis considers the fact that during his time in service to the Chamber he met and married the executive director, Sandra, as one of his greatest accomplishments and his greatest gift. He has served and held leadership positions on numerous boards including the Ashland Visitor & Convention Bureau (chair), the City of Ashland Budget Committee (chair), Southern Oregon Regional Economic Development board, Ashland Economic Sustainability Committee and many others. Dennis is currently an elected member of the Ashland City Council and the SOU Faculty Senate.
