Dr. Keith Keppley joined the Limestone University faculty in 2012 and currently serves as Associate Professor of Management, and Faculty Advisor for both the Delta Mu Delta Business Honors Society and Alpha Chi Honor Society. 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 University.

His research interests tend to focus around two areas,

  1. Understanding how and why people react and behave towards each other in the workplace, and
  2. Merging the areas of communication and leadership by looking at how popular culture reflects and defines leadership.

Dr. Keppley switched careers in 2012 by moving from industry to academia, He continues to build his research and presentation portfolio. To date, he has presented research at the International Leadership Association Conference, Conference of the Image, Organizational Behavior Teaching Conference, and Tobias Leadership 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 University (Marching Saints and MBA program) and other profit and non-profit organizations.

When not working, volunteering, or researching, 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.
