School of Business Hosts Second Faculty Colloquium of the Semester

The School of Business hosted its second Faculty Colloquium of the Fall 2022 semester on Tuesday, October 25, 2022. The Fall 2022 research series marks a reimagining of the Colloquium. All Woodbury faculty are invited to discuss research projects they are working on as well as test pilot research ideas that they have been considering. The second faculty colloquium brought forth a lively discussion with faculty from the School of Business, the School of Architecture, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the university library in attendance.  

Mark Lampert, Title V HSI-CS Grant Activity Director, and Computer Science Interdisciplinary Coordinator, started off the session by discussing his research for his doctoral dissertation, which focuses on mentor and mentee communications in STEM programs. After discussing his professional background, his research, and his plan for his dissertation, the faculty in attendance gave Professor Lampert helpful feedback and advice to take with him as he works on his dissertation.  

Dr. Joan Marques, Dean of the School of Business, then shared a research idea that she had been considering with those in attendance. Dr. Marques explained her interest in investigating the impatience people feel toward their career paths and how it relates to Buddhist psychology. This sparked an enriching and fruitful discussion among the faculty in attendance who shared their own observations with Dr. Marques. The faculty also posed helpful questions to help guide Dr. Marques in her research moving forward.  

The atmosphere at the session was open, productive, and collegial. The final session of the Faculty Research Series for Fall 2022 will be held on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, from 12:00 pm-1:00 pm in the Bowman Conference Room of the Business Building. The session will be lightly catered, and all Woodbury instructional faculty are welcome to attend. The Faculty Research series is organized by Dr. Thomas Chapman, Chair of the Computer Information Systems department, one of four Title V HSI-CS grant-sponsored programs at Woodbury University. The Computer Information Systems department is housed in the School of Business.
