Janet Fulk is a Professor of Communications in the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and Professor of Management & Organization in the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. She holds M.B.A. and Ph.D. in administrative sciences from The Ohio State University and a B.A. in English literature from Michigan State University. Previous academic appointments include Visiting Scholar at Stanford University, Visiting Lecturer in the Management Centre at University of Aston (England), and Assistant Professor of Business and of Public Administration at Kent State University (joint appointment).

Dr. Fulk's research focuses on the role of communication and information technology for organizations. A series of research projects sponsored by the National Science Foundation examine how communication and information systems are employed to foster collaboration and knowledge distribution within and between organizations. The research stream also examines the development and use of intranets and extranets for knowledge distribution. A completed research project sponsored by the Annenberg Center for Communication examined the development of new "virtual" organizational forms for global competition. This research examined a new form of alliance between governmental organizations and private industry, as well as new forms and patterns of organization enabled by communication and information systems.

Dr. Fulk's publications include Policing Hawthorne (2000, with Greg Patton and Peter Monge) Shaping Organizational Form: Communication, Connection and Community (1999, with Gerardine DeSanctis), and Organizations and Communication Technology (1990, with Charles Steinfield), which won an award from the National Communication Association. Her publications on organizations and communication technology have appeared in Human Communication Research, Communication Research, Communication Theory and Organization Science, among others, and an award-winning article appeared in Academy of Management Journal. She has served on a variety of editorial boards and has completed a term on the Board of Governors of Academy of Management, where she was also elected Fellow.

Dr. Fulk's applied research and consulting have included such organizations as Sun Microsystems, PeopleSoft, Charles Schwab, Quantum, Fiat, Boeing, AMOCO Production Company, Southern California Edison, General Electric, Washington Industries, Hawthorne Police Department and Los Angeles County Regional Criminal Information Clearinghouse.

Dr. Fulk teaches M.A. courses on Managing Communications, Communication and Global Competition, and Communication in Work Settings. At the undergraduate level she teaches Organizational Communication, Social and Economic Implications of Communication Technology, and Human and Technological Systems in Organizations. At the PhD level she teaches Communication and Organizational Change and Technology and Organization. She has been an innovator in new forms of distance learning involving joint offerings of doctoral courses by video conference with professors at four other universities. These efforts won her and her colleagues the distance learning award from Purdue University.
