Correction: 2015 Aspire Junior Faculty Awardees Announced

Contributed by: Jessie Roark
Published: Friday, 17 April 2015 5:30 PM
In the previous email Qiannong Gu's project title was incorrectly listed as "Social impacts of an action sports-for-development project on Native Americans." The correct title of the project is "A strategic analysis of information sharing in global supply chain management." The change has been reflected in body of the message. We apologize for this error.

With competitions in research and creative arts the Aspire Junior Faculty Program is available to faculty members in their first five years of a tenure-track appointment.
