Dr. Kraushaar retired effective June 1, 2011. He joined the UVM School of Business in 1981 after six years at California State University in Sacramento and Fresno. His major interests are in the design, analysis and implementation of management information systems and in computer modeling. Dr. Kraushaar has consulted with various private and public organizations, including the IBM Corporation, US Small Business Administration, US Departments of Interior and Agriculture and the California Department of Education. His published works include articles in MIS Quarterly, The Accounting Review, Computers and Industrial Engineering, Journal of Accounting, Auditing, and Finance, Property Tax Journal, Engineering Management International, Environmental Management, Interface, ACM SIGCSE Bulletin, and proceedings of various national professional conferences. His textbook, Computer Concepts, Structural Programming, and Interactive BASIC, was published by Mitchell in 1982.

Awards: Dr. Kraushaar has received many awards recognizing his outstanding commitment to teaching and the engagement of students in the pursuit of knowledge. These include the Allscripts Teaching Award (2006), the Kroepsch-Maurice Excellence in Teaching Award (2003), as well as being named Teacher of the Year several times.
