Annual Research Conference
Simon School of Business
University of Rochester
305 Schlegel Hall, Rochester, NY 14627
The University-wide Annual Research Conference aims to promote diversity and inclusion through the advancement of scholarship and showcasing scholarly activity. Potential faculty members are encouraged to attend the conference as we focus on food and culture in research and scholarship. Food Justice creates opportunities for multidisciplinary dialogue and innovative research to expand our lens on the complexity of food within various cultures.
The conference objectives: (1) spark and share meaningful dialogue within the UR academic community concerning issues on culture; (2) inform pedagogy for sustainable and meaningful learning environments; and (3) create a space for scholarly exchange at the University to ask questions, get assistance and seek collaborative opportunities around investigating our commonalities through culture.
