Charlotte Westerhaus-Renfrow is the Faculty Chair of the Undergraduate Program at the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University-Indianapolis, and Clinical Assistant Professor of Management and Business Law.
In 2019, Indiana University President Michael McRobbie appointed Charlotte as an Indiana University Bicentennial Professor - awarded to "extraordinary faculty who demonstrated a commitment to public outreach, community engagement, and translational public outcomes in their teaching, research, and service." In addition, in 2019, she was named to the Alliance of Distinguished and Title Professors, an organization that works to promote excellence at Indiana University.
Before joining IU Kelley, Charlotte served as Interim President of Martin University, Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion of the NCAA, and other important roles at the University of Iowa, Purdue University, University of Wisconsin, and Northwestern Mutual.
In this fun and insightful episode, Charlotte talks about growing up with southern parents that exposed her to art, science, and literature at a very early age, being a "glam-ma" to her 7 grandkids, the long road that got her to Indiana University, her love of cooking, forgiveness, grief, and a series of setback moments over the course of 18 months that set her up for her comeback.
