Universities — Engines of Economic Development and Diversification
Guests: OSU Senior Vice President of Operations Jerome Loughridge and Cowboy Innovations Director Zach Miles
In this session we will discuss how universities (with emphasis on OSU) leverage their facilities, personnel, students, tools, and resources to drive economic development and diversification across the globe. From unique assets available on campus to providing real-world opportunities for students, universities form the basis for many successful economies around the world. As OSU charts its course for the next five years, innovation aimed at economic development and solving society’s greatest needs will feature as prominent pillars in its strategy. We look forward to seeing you at the Iron Monk Brewery Taproom, 519 South Husband, on Monday, January 24, at 5:30 pm.
~~ General Info: The Oklahoma State University Division of the Vice President for Research, in partnership with Iron Monk Brewery, is excited to present an opportunity for you, the public, to meet and interact with experts from a wide range of research fields at OSU. Researchers from the sciences, arts and humanities will be joined by Dr. Kenneth Sewell, the Vice President for Research, to have a conversation regarding their work and the impact it has on you and your community. Ample time will be provided for you to interact with the researcher and questions are encouraged in this informal, but informative, setting. We hope you will join us the third Monday of each month to enjoy some of Stillwater’s own local brew while chatting about some of the impactful and interesting research happening here on the OSU campus. Each session will be approximately 20 minutes of open dialogue between Dr. Sewell and the researcher, followed by questions and discussion from the audience.
