Jo Ann Oravec is a professor in the College of Business and Economics at the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater. She received her MBA, MS, MA, and PhD at UW-Madison. She also taught at Baruch College of the City University of New York as well as UW-Madison and Ball State University. She chaired the Privacy Council of the State of Wisconsin, the nation's first state-level council dealing with information technology and privacy. She has written books including "Virtual Individuals, Virtual Groups: Human Dimensions of Groupware and Computer Networking" (Cambridge University Press) and has more than eleven hundred citations of her academic journal articles. She held visiting fellow positions at Cambridge and Oxford.


My services include spearheading writing initiatives, lecture series, research projects, instructional materials design, and so much more.  I am currently a full time professor but can often fit in an interesting project or two especially in the areas of services for disabled individuals and ideographics.  I also give lectures and develop educational materials on privacy, bullying, academic freedom, online education, and online reputational concerns.
