BUSINESS WEEK magazine has twice named him one of the "outstanding faculty" in Notre Dame's Mendoza College of business. His publications include MANAGEMENT COMMUNICATION: A CASE-ANALYSIS APPROACH from Prentice-Hall, now in second edition, and BUSINESS COMMUNICATION: A FRAMEWORK FOR SUCCESS from Thomson Learning. O'Rourke is also senior editor of an eight-book series on Managerial Communication and is principal author or directing editor of more than 100 management and corporate communication case studies. O'Rourke is a graduate of Notre Dame with advanced degrees from Temple University, the University of New Mexico, and a Ph.D. in Communication from the S. I. Newhouse School of Syracuse University. He has held faculty appointments at the United States Air Force Academy, the Defense Information School, the United States Air War College, and the Communications Institute of Ireland. He was a Gannett Foundation Teaching Fellow at Indiana University in the 1980s, and a graduate student in language and history at Christ's College, Cambridge University, in England during the 1970s. O'Rourke is a member and trustee of The Arthur W. Page Society, a member of the Reputation Institute, and the Management Communication Association.

Sedlack, Jr., is responsible for consultation service, design, and execution of a wide variety of print and multimedia projects to the business and cultural community. Projects include annual reports, corporate identity programs, fundraising and development packages, and website development. Sedlack's personal research is focused on the life-changing impact that design can have when applied appropriately and collaboratively with organizations dedicated to social betterment. He teaches both undergraduate and graduate design students, and his course work includes projects that tackle various social issues such as discrimination, gun control, and voter participation. Sedlack is also interested in connecting students to the professional world of design. He fosters this relationship by hosting conferences and visiting speakers, organizing frequent visits to design firms and related organizations, and arranging trips to design shows, exhibits, and portfolio reviews.
