Professor Pamela Tolbert is the Lois S. Gray Professor of ILR and Social Sciences, and chair of the Department of Organizational Behavior. She came to the ILR School in 1983 after receiving her Ph.D. in sociology from UCLA. She is broadly interested in processes of organizational change, the role of organizations in social stratification, and the reciprocal relations between occupational arrangements and organizational structures. Her current research includes studies of the use of tenure systems by higher education organizations, state-level influences on the admission of women to state bar associations, and the composition of corporate boards of directors. She has served on the editorial boards of a variety of organizational and sociological journals, as the book review editor for Administrative Science Quarterly, and as a senior editor for Management Science; Academy of Management Review, and Organization Science. She is currently serving as an associate editor for Administrative Science Quarterly.
Professor Richard H. Hall is the co-founder of UAlbany’s Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in Organizational Studies.
