Dean John A. Elliott Inducted Into Ph.D. Project Hall Of Fame

Ph.D. Project Hall of FameThe Ph.D. Project, an award-winning program to increase diversity in management, announced John A. Elliott, Ph.D., Dean of the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College, as one of the inaugural inductees into their newly established PhD Project Hall of Fame.

The Ph.D. Project was created in 1994 to address the severe under-representation of African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and Native Americans in management by diversifying business school faculty. The Ph.D. Project established the Hall of Fame to recognize a select few who have inspired many. These individuals have sustained an unwavering commitment to The PhD Project's mission and their positive leadership has resulted in significant encouragement and impact within The Project's network of minority business doctoral students and faculty. More info

Nov. 4, 9 am: New Business Models for Energy Innovation

Information & Technology Building, Rackow Conference Room (750), 151 E. 25th St.

Join Baruch College's Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity and Corporate Communication International's 4th Annual Symposium on Sustainability. This symposium will discuss energy — an important topic that has become hot this past year between the deepwater horizon disaster shut oil exploration in the Gulf; "fracking (hydraulic fracturing, used to release natural gas from shale);  and the destruction of the Fukushima nuclear plant following the Japanese tsunami. On top of the fossil fuel disasters, progress on innovative energy schemes (smart grid, wind, solar, and bio fuels) has not sped along. Energy is a vital component to community and business life. What role should business play in developing a sound energy policy, one that provides for a sustainable future for the people and businesses that make up communities? Come hear an expert panel explore these issues and more, tomorrow! More info

Nov. 7, 7 pm: An Evening with Art Spiegelman

Newman Vertical Campus, BPAC - Engelman Recital Hall, 55 Lexington Ave

MetaMausThe Jewish Studies Center and Weissman Talks offers a special presentation from Art Spiegelman, celebrating his new book, Meta Maus. Art Spiegelman has almost single-handedly brought comic books out of the toy closet and onto the literature shelves. In 1992, he won the Pulitzer Prize for his masterful Holocaust narrative Maus — which portrayed Jews as mice and Nazis as cats. Maus II continued the remarkable story of his parents' survival of the Nazi regime and their lives later in America. His comics are best known for their shifting graphic styles, their formal complexity, and controversial content. In his lecture, "What the %@&*! Happened to Comics?" Spiegelman takes his audience on a chronological tour of the evolution of comics, all the while explaining the value of this medium and why it should not be ignored. Limited capacity - RSVP to attend!
