Vincent earned her B.S. in industrial and labor relations and her M.S. and Ph.D. in organizational behavior from Cornell University. She teaches undergraduate and graduate management classes at Whitman.
PhD, Organizational Behavior, Cornell University - School of Industrial and Labor Relations
Vincent's research examines the moral and social implications of creativity. In contrast to the status quo view of creativity as inherently positive, she investigates the potential dark side and the unexpected consequences of creativity. Her research reveals that creativity and the perception of creativity influences decisions to engage in dishonest behaviors, how people handle negative experiences and even how people judge others. These processes affect how organizations encourage creativity, how organizations design jobs and how hiring decisions are made. Her research has appeared in Academy of Management Journal, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Journal of Experimental Psychology: General and Psychological Science.
