Biography

William "Marty" Martin not only teaches a variety of courses ranging from health sector management to entrepreneurship, but also he is the faculty director of DePaul's Master of Science in Human Resources program and two  combined degree programs: Health Sector Management MBA and MA in Health Communication and the MBA and Master of Public Health.

His research focuses on business ethics, he
althcare management, disruptive behavior, and, more recently, entrepreneurship since he became a Coleman Entrepreneurship Faculty Fellow. Since transitioning from an executive to a faculty role, Martin has published 39 peer review articles, 45 editor review articles, two books and numerous book chapters. His scholarly work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and the USA Today. 

Martin’s connection to the business, health care and start-up communities has been recognized. Martin has served as the co-lead of the design core of the DePaul/Rush Center on Community Health Equity. This cross-campus initiative aims to reduce health disparities primarily on the West Side of Chicago. 

As a licensed clinical health psychologist armed with a Master's in Public Health, Martin approaches his role as a business and entrepreneurial faculty member in a unique way. This perspective has resulted in the development of numerous community-based service learning courses. One such course is Streets of Chicago: Healthcare Management, which gives students the opportunity to interact with executives, managers and health practitioners in a host of companies, such as Navigant Consulting and Hospira. He also helped DePaul with starting an MBA program tailored to the needs of Walgreen's employees. In 2015, Martin was awarded the DePaul Excellence in Public Service Award for his contributions to the community. 

Martin serves as the student Society for Human Resource Management Chapter faculty advisor. He also was named as a nominee for the DePaul Spirit of Assessment Award and was named in 2014 as a DePaul Media Star.
