Subsequently he was program evaluator for the federally funded Cooperative Education Research Laboratory, Inc. At the Intext Corporation he worked as an applied research scientist managing driver behavior research and training contracts.

He completed a post-doctoral summer session in program evaluation at Northwestern University and subsequently directed the evaluation of a three-year federally funded Women in Leadership Learning program at Barat College. He was a member of the Danforth Foundation for Teaching excellence and the first recipient at Barat College of the Sears Roebuck Foundation Award for Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership.
