Faculty Interview- Scott A. Ames

“Learning is a 'participator sport', not a 'spectator sport'. As engagement in the classroom increases, so does understanding and retention. I seek to partner with my students to create an interesting and useful learning environment” said Scott A. Ames, Logistics and Supply Chain Management Program Coordinator at the UNT Dallas Campus.

Scott A. Ames earned a bachelor's of science degree and an MBA from Michigan State University. Before coming to the UNT Dallas Campus to establish a new program in logistics and supply chain management, he served as an executive lecturer at the UNT flagship in Denton, the University of Texas at Arlington, Southern Methodist University, and North Lake College of the Dallas County Community College District. In addition to his commitment to the classroom, for the past 25 years Ames has been the owner and principal of his own logistics consulting firm. His wide range of industry experience enables him to effectively blend textbook theory with hands-on practice for an exciting learning experience.

Mr. Ames stated that his vision for the Logistics and Supply Chain Management program is that the program will be “a cornerstone of the success of our University”.

When asked what he would say to students, Mr. Ames said, “Our University is a banquet of choices and opportunities. Prepare well for the future success that can be yours!”
