William "Marty" Martin not only teaches a variety of courses ranging from health sector management to entrepreneurship, but he is also the faculty director of the DePaul MSHR degree and two combined degree programs: Health Sector Management MBA/MS with Rush University and the MBA/MPH at DePaul University.

His research focuses on business ethics, workplace wellness, and, more recently, burnout. Since transitioning from an executive to a faculty role, Martin has published 60 peer review articles, 76 editor review articles, two books and numerous book chapters. His scholarly work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and USA Today.

Martin’s connection to the business, health care and start-up communities has been recognized. Martin serves 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. His scholarly focus on health equity and burnout set the stage for him to enroll in the Masters in Bioethics (MBE) at Harvard Medical School.

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. In 2015, Martin was awarded the DePaul Excellence in Public Service Award for his contributions to the community.

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