SCL reaches out to students, educators, businesses and the logistics community in an effort to increase exposure and accessibility to supply chain & logistics expertise through a variety of educational programs, partnership opportunities and outreach activities.
New ideas and new tools are born in the robust research environment supported by the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute. Solutions and improvements produced by researchers provide businesses with the high level of competitiveness that is critical to their success in the marketplace both at home and overseas.
Thousands of logistics and supply chain management professionals have advanced their knowledge—and their companies’ profitability—with the education they obtained through the courses and graduate degree programs offered through the Supply Chain & Logistics Institute and Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Bartholdi taught supply chain issues and primarily warehousing at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and in SCL's professional education program. His research centered on problems in warehousing and distribution, but he reserved some time to pursue wider-ranging interests, including mechanics, politics, computer science, geography, and biology. Bartholdi was named a "Presidential Young Investigator" by the National Science Foundation for 1984-1989. His research work was supported by the Defense Logistics Agency, the Office of Naval Research, and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, among others.
Bartholdi graduated in 1968 with a B.S. degree in mathematics from the University of Florida and then served two tours of duty in southeast Asia as a paratrooper in a Naval Special Warfare unit. He returned to the University of Florida to complete the Ph.D. program in operations research in 1977 and later served on the faculties at the University of Michigan, the Shanghai Institute of Mechanical Engineering, and the National University of Singapore.
