Biography:

Brian Hentz, Assistant Professor in-Residence, teaches undergraduate courses in business writing and professional communication for UConn’s School of Business, as well as graduate courses in interpersonal communication and adaptive leadership for UConn’s MBA program. Hentz also serves as a ghost writer for the School of Business; most recently, he has worked closely with UConn’s Center for International Business Education & Research (CIBER) to develop white papers for its sustainability outreach and education partnership with the University of Queensland (Australia). A former managing editor for the American Accounting Association (Issues in Accounting Education), he is particularly interested in how shifting aging dynamics in the twenty-first century will shape workplace communication, influence multigenerational relations, and mandate more sustainable life course models (in his dissertation, Hentz explored how older, professional men coped adaptively with involuntary job loss following the global financial crisis).

A regular presenter at conferences that reflect his cross-disciplinary interests in professional communication, adult learning, and gerontology (e.g., Association for Business Communication, American Association for Adult and Continuing Education, Association for Gerontology in Higher Education), Hentz has published articles on storytelling strategies for professionals, as well as facilitation strategies that promote adult learning. In 2014, he received the UConn Connects Faculty Mentor of the Year award for his outreach with undergraduates seeking to improve their academic performance.
