Angie Burks



With an interest in strategic communication and innovation, Angie Burks taught over 900 students at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. After Burks’ first semester, she was nominated for the IU Student Choice Award for Excellence in Teaching. In 2007, 2008, and 2009 she was nominated for the Trustees Teaching Excellence Award, one of the most prestigious faculty awards at Indiana University. Challenging and engaging, the waitlist for her course was double the average.

With the personal goal of helping engineers manage their communication regarding innovation, Burks accepted a faculty offer from the Engineering Education Department at The Ohio State University (OSU). In 2013 and 2015, she was nominated for the Provost's Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer, one of OSU's highest faculty honors. She has presented at the state and national level on engineering ethics and the liabilities of electronic communication.

Certified in Blackboard Learning Systems technology, her "Negotiations and Mediation" course within Northeastern University’s distance learning program has been delivered to over 800 graduate students and executives around the world including Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

A graduate of the University of Michigan, Boston University School of Law and former Community Builder Fellow at Harvard University, Burks is excited about the global intersection of communication, technology, ethics, and humanity.
