Dr. Richard E. Stanley, professor of Mechanical Engineering
Ph.D. from Wayne State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in dynamics and vibrations (specifically in the area of internal combustion engines) and development of internet animation software for dynamics and statics courses.

Stanley sees Kettering students as intelligent, driven and career-minded. When asked what makes Kettering students different he says, "Kettering students come in as student interns and graduate as hands-on professionals, possessing an exceptional amount of confidence and forward-thinking abilities." Stanley feels that the students are his life, and he is inspired by their brilliance and confidence. He originally wanted to teach at Kettering because "there is no other school in the country with such a unique approach to education, a cooperative education school with a strong focus on education."

His hot tip for prospective students is to "get ready to work hard and earn the many benefits that come with an education here."

Hidden talents and outside interests: Stanley is a lifelong martial artist, teaching Tang Soo Do, kickboxing, and Brazilian Jiu Jitzu (BJJ) for more than 25 years. This allows him to relate many BJJ techniques to "mechanics" principles in the classroom and seminars.

B.S. from Lawrence Technological University in Electrical Engineering

M.S. from Oakland University in Applied Mathematics

Stock sees Kettering students as fun, bright, and mature. She feels that Kettering students are distinguished from other university students because of the closer relationship that exists between the students and faculty as a result of being a small university with smaller class sizes. She sees them as much more supportive of one another and connected with their professors on a deeper personal level. Stock's favorite part of teaching at Kettering is the satisfaction of knowing that she contributes to the molding and shaping of the lives of her students.  She was originally drawn to teaching at Kettering because it allows her to balance her professional life with her role as a parent.

Stock would tell prospective students to, "Review your pre-calculus/trigonometry before you start your first academic term.  Take advantage of all the opportunities at the school and at your co-op job.  Get involved in community service, intramurals, Greek life, clubs, student government, etc.  Kettering is more than just academics.  It's about shaping future leaders and CEOs."

Stock is married to Jack Stock, Director of External Affairs at Kettering.  Together they have six children.  She is also academic adviser to Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.

Hidden talents and outside interests: Stock enjoys music, playing guitar, boating, downhill skiing, international travel, sports and activities with her family.
