Eccles School: What/who inspires you?

Rausch: My students inspire me. I am really impressed with the work they produce. They all work really hard. My colleagues in the Management department also really influence me.

Eccles School: How do you keep yourself goal-focused and goal-oriented?

Rausch: I choose goals that I am excited about that aligned with my personal values in life. I used to be freaked out about goals, but figured out it is not inspiring.

Eccles School: What is your favorite quote?

Rausch: “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.” ~Maya Angelou

Eccles School: What is your favorite place to visit?
