Campus Kudos
Kudos to the members of University Housing who attended the Upper Midwest Region Association of Colleges and University Housing Officers (UMR-ACUHO) conference in St. Paul, Minnesota, on Nov. 6-8, 2019. Jacque Chapman, complex director, Audrey Cloum, assistant director of community development, Terry Tumbarello, director of residence life, Cheyenne Brocker and Emily Sanger, assistant complex directors, Justin Dickerson, complex director, and Cole Kallio-Crotteau, complex director, all participated in a variety of capacities.

Kudos to Lucy Heimer, associate professor of early childhood education, whose co-authored book, “Reshaping Universal Preschool: Critical Perspectives on Power and Policy,” was published by TC Press. The book is a cautionary tale that includes historical and current vignettes to show that some conflicts in universal preschool are constant across time.

In the Media
Lei Xu, assistant professor of strategic management and entrepreneurship, had his article, “The Contingent Value of Entrepreneurs’ Political Capital: Evidence from China,” recently published in Taylor & Francis Online. The article focuses on whether and how entrepreneurs’ social networks influence the relationship between their political capital and social mobility. Taylor and Francis Online »

D’Arcy Becker, professor of accounting and department chair, offered her expertise on the difference between bookkeeping and accounting. “Bookkeeping is designed to generate data about the activities of an organization; accounting is designed to turn that data into information,” said Becker.
