Rick Holly


I am Core Faculty in the PhD Management program at Walden University. Prior to my work at Walden, I was a Research and Assessment librarian for University of Phoenix. Prior to this role, I was the Campus College Chair of all business doctoral programs in the School of Advanced Studies. I have taught in higher education for the past 12 years, have mentored students through their graduate and doctoral research.

My research interests are in management and leadership within academic libraries, specifically in mentoring and career paths. I work on professional development opportunities for librarians and mentoring opportunities in academic libraries and preparing the future librarian for the challenges that they will face them in the changing digital environment. My research has been focused on assessment, transferrable skills and support for students in regards of information literacy.
