Dr. Hershauer has taught over 40 different courses in the managerial decision sciences from freshman level through final doctoral seminars. These have included courses in business planning for sustainability, innovation, organizational strategies for sustainable technologies, business processes, operations management, managerial decisions, information systems, simulation, human decision processes, human resource management, supply chain management, sustainable dealership management, and research methodology.   He has served on over 55 doctoral dissertation committees and chaired 25 of them. He has chaired over 150 thesis projects for Business Honors Students. He led the development of the Certificate for Automotive Entrepreneurs and Leaders and supports a continuing relationship with the program’s sponsor - the Ford Motor Company.
 
Dr. Hershauer, a charter member of DSI in 1969, has received the award of Fellow in the Decision Sciences Institute and was the Editor of the Decision Sciences Journal from 1990 through 1992. He has been a co-author on 8 research volumes about business practice topics such as productivity, quality, and supply chains. These projects involved working with executives from over 100 organizations. He has published over 50 articles in a wide variety of journals.
 
Dr. Hershauer retired in 2009 to devote his continuing work to sustainability. Dr. Hershauer’s first paper on environmental issues was “Elements of Environmental Compliance Infrastructure,” OM Review, Volume 10, Number 3, July 1994, pp. 51-54 (with Ralph Ponce de Leon, Motorola, Inc.). His most recent environmental paper was coauthored by Dan O’Neill and Jay Golden on “The Cultural Context of Sustainability Entrepreneurship” and appeared in Greener Management International, Volume 55, 2009. He is currently working a multi-volume edited set on Sustainable Business Practices with two co-editors. He is also teaching an online course on sustainability and the auto industry.
