Charlotte L. Hoopes

Assistant Professor of Business Administration 

The Williams School, Washington and Lee University 

I am an Assistant Professor of Business Administration at The Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics at Washington and Lee University

Prior to coming to W&L, I was on the faculty at the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce. I have also taught at the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, where I earned my PhD.

To date, my research has primarily focused on person-environment (P-E) fit, which I use as a framework to better understand how individuals relate with one another, their jobs, and the organizations of which they are a part. In addition to P-E fit, I have published work on topics related to communication, leadership, and teams. I am currently engaged in research related to P-E fit as well as employment gaps. 

Related to pedagogy, I have authored business case studies and an OER eTextbook, and continue work in each of these areas. I am also engaged in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), with current projects focusing on understanding how to increase the utility value of course content from the student perspective, as well as understanding how students experience the use of AI in different aspects of teaching and learning. 

I earned my PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, my MBA from Brigham Young University, and my B.S. in Accounting and Spanish, with honors, from Brigham Young University. 

After earning my PhD, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business. Before academia, I worked in accounting and finance positions at Ernst & Young (Boston office),, and Zions Bancorporation.
