CBE Research Seminar Series


Faculty Research Seminar


Submissions Due: March 11, 2018

The CBE Faculty Research Seminar series is a forum for faculty and instructors in the College of Business and Economics to present research intended for submission to peer-reviewed journals or presentation at academic conferences. The forum is an opportunity for faculty and instructors to discuss their work-in-progress and to receive feedback from colleagues in preparation for successful external submissions. Each seminar will highlight the work of two presenters.

Tenure-track/Tenured faculty who present at the CBE Research Seminar and attend at least 2 seminars in the series this semester will receive a $500 award to offset travel expenses incurred for presenting at a future peer-reviewed academic conference.
