Interdisciplinary Events Series
Elevating Interdisciplinary Research
Interdisciplinary approaches and translational research are important in advancing actionable insights to solve real-world problems. In pursuit of high impact research, the Fox School is introducing a cross-disciplinary theme for departmental seminars. By exploring a thematic area across departments and showcasing different perspectives in scholarship, the Translational Research Center (TRC), in partnership with the Office of Research and Doctoral Programs, aims to bring together scholars with common interests and increase opportunities for interdisciplinary research. For the 2019-2020 academic year, the research theme is “Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability.”
Celebrating Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability in Research and Education
In a socially conscious society, consumers expect businesses to be responsible partners in preserving the environment, acting in an ethical manner and contributing to their community. Research provides insight and best practices for incorporating CSR into a company’s strategy, understanding the benefits and burdens of sustainability regulation and serving an informed consumer. The Fox School is proud to host leading scholars in their fields to drive conversations that will further research initiatives in these topic areas.
2019 Impact Summit
Join the Fox School of Business at the 2019 Impact Summit, where researchers, deans, senior executives and public policy leaders will convene to deliberate on how business schools can make a greater impact on business practice, policy and in the community at large.
Building on the success of the 2018 Editor’s Summit, the Fox School is spearheading an initiative to develop clear ways of defining and measuring the impact of business scholarship, discuss pathways for building business schools’ capacity of intentional and consistent translational research, and share insights quickly between academia, industry and society.
