Associate Professor of Management
Dr. Keith Keppley joined the Limestone College faculty in 2012 and he currently serves as Assistant Professor of Management, Faculty Advisor for Sigma Beta Delta Business Honors Society, and Chair of the Online Course Quality Committee. Dr. Keppley grew up in South Central Pennsylvania, and most recently lived in Baltimore, Maryland before moving to South Carolina to begin his full-time teaching career at Limestone College.
His research interests tend to focus around two areas,
- Understanding how and why people react and behave towards each other in the workplace, and
- Merging the areas of communication and leadership by looking at how popular culture reflects and defines leadership. Having switched careers and moving from industry to academia in 2012, Dr. Keppley is still building his research and presentation portfolio, but he has presented research at the International Leadership Association Conference, Conference of the Image, and Organizational Behavior Teaching Conference.
As a firm believer in equality, Dr. Keppley volunteers his time to several organizations that promote and extend the ability for all human beings to be equal. Being a long-time lover of television and movies, Dr. Keppley has also led and participated in creating a low budget independent feature-length science fiction movie, and several short films for competitions. This creative outlet has also led to him being involved with doing some videography work for Limestone College and other profit and non-profit organizations.
When not teaching, volunteering, or attending and presenting at conferences, Dr. Keppley enjoys traveling as much as possible. He took his first international trip to London, England over New Year's with the Limestone Marching Saints, and his ultimate trip would be to Australia.
