In its second year, the Haslam Summer Scholars research awards program has more than doubled its support for faculty led, high quality, research in the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville..
“These awards allow us to promote strong scholarship while recognizing and supporting outstanding faculty in the Haslam College of Business,” said Annette L. Ranft, senior associate dean for academic affairs. “The program itself and the individual faculty awards are possible because of the generous financial support of our donors, most of whom are also Haslam alumni. We are grateful for their support as we congratulate all those selected on their promising work.”
A total of 11 faculty will carry a research fellow designation for the coming academic year. These faculty members conduct research across a broad spectrum of topics exploring areas of corporate governance, supply chain management, finance and accounting, executive behavior and entrepreneurship.
The Haslam Summer Scholars program is a primary component of the college’s strategic plan aimed at increasing the visibility and impact of knowledge-creation activities. The awards recognize the scholarship of tenure-track faculty members based on their research productivity over the prior three-year period. In addition to private support, the program also is supported by the Chancellor’s Faculty Support Challenge.
