Beginning this past Tuesday, 275 guests from across the country and around the world began to arrive on campus for OBTC 2017, the annual conference of OBTS, the Teaching Society for Management Educators. This conference, which is being hosted by the College in partnership with the School of Business, welcomes a diverse mix of educators who, in the spirit of this year’s theme of “Navigating the Changing Currents,” share in their love for teaching by discussing and collaborating with one another as teachers and scholars on a wide range of topics as they pertain to the ever-changing environment of academia and business. Conference sessions are held in the Ryan Center for Business Studies and in the Ruane Center for the Humanities, and many attendees are residing in the Davis and Suites Halls. Evening social events are taking place on the Ryan Center’s Phelan Courtyard and Lawn, and also in McPhail’s. The conference will wrap up on Saturday afternoon.
The conference this year is co-organized by Professor of Management, Dr. Matthew Eriksen, and Assistant Director of Advancement Operations, Anthony Miccolis ’13G. For more information on the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society, click here.
