Good communication is vital to all professions, and particularly important to individuals who want to succeed in business. Professor Emerita Janet Winter shared her strong knowledge of business communication with hundreds of students during the 22 years she dedicated to UCM.

After beginning her career at Central Missouri as an assistant professor of management in 1989, Winter climbed the faculty ladder to become a professor of management in 2000. Her entry into the teaching field began in 1975 as a commerce instructor at Drouin High School in Australia. After serving as a graduate assistant at Kearney State University (now the University of Nebraska at Kearney), she moved to Wyoming to teach Business Office Studies at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington, and then became a lecturer in business education at the University of Wyoming, Laramie.

Winter earned her bachelor’s degree in business education and her master’s degree in vocational education at Kearney State College, and a Doctor of Education degree in business education/education administration from the University of Wyoming.

Throughout her career at UCM, she taught graduate and undergraduate courses, and also served on a number of committees at the university, college and department levels. Her vast service includes participation on groups dealing with scholarships, special events, faculty awards, professional enhancement, promotion and tenure, faculty searches, and more.

Her scholarly work included co-authoring papers that appeared in professional publications such as the “Journal of Business Cases & Applications” and “Journal of Education for Business.” Winter was also involved in professional organizations such as the Association for Business Communication, Delta Pi Epsilon business education fraternity, and the American Association of University Professors.
