People at Work
An important theme is “People at Work.” Faculty affiliated with the Beebe Institute conduct research, serve as instructors of courses within the Robinson College of Business, and work closely with the business community to bridge the worlds of academics and practice. There are several academic programs and courses throughout the Robinson College of Business that address, in some way, the “People at Work” theme. Student and alumni activities and achievements within various disciplines, especially human resource management and organizational behavior, reflect a vibrant community of students and professionals who value innovation, education, and practice in this area. There are points of intersection of the PAW theme throughout units of the Robinson College and in the business community.
