Vicki Sauter joined the faculty of the College of Business Administration in 1979 after receiving her Ph.D. in systems engineering from Northwestern University, and serves currently as Professor of Information Systems at UM-St. Louis. Her research interests began with decision support systems, especially in the model-management area. You can view her book, Decision Support Systems for Business Intelligence. Currently Professor Sauter is working in the area of systems analysis with a focus on the improvement of methodologies. In addition, she is conducting research in the role of women in the information systems profession.

Professor Sauter teaches classes primarily in Systems Analysis, at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels. She also teaches decision support systems and web development.

Dr. Sauter's book has just published a new book, Street Lights of the World, the ultimate visual guide to this often overlooked architectural accessory. She is also working on a new book, You are Never Too Old to Surf. You can read the proposal.

Currently Dr. Sauter is working on three research projects. One continues her systems engineering work by examining the importance of Swimlane Diagrams to the interaction of analysts and users. Her second research project is examining the relative satisfaction of IT professionals in ISO Certified and CMMI rated organizations, compared to the organizations that do not have either ISO or CMMI credentials. This ultimately will also examine the impact on maintaining women IT professionals. The third project currently is stalled, but interesting. It is a social-linguistic examingation of decision making styles.

Professor Sauter serves on the Board of Craft Alliance and on the Board of the Restoration Committee of Bonhomme's Old Stone Church. She also volunteers her technological skills at the Stamper Library of John Burroughs School. Professor Sauter is also one of the volunteers working on rehabilitating the garden in front of ESH.
