Professional Notes

Dr. Phil Anderson, Management Department, Opus College of Business, and Dr. Leigh Lawton, Operations and Supply Chain Management Department, Opus College of Business, had their paper, “Intercultural Development: Study Abroad vs. On-campus Study,” accepted for publication in the fall 2011 issue of Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad. With an acceptance rate of only 20 percent, Frontiers is a top journal for the publication of research on study-abroad programs. One of the reviewers commented, “This is an important study with a very solid research design. The fact that the program was semester-long and that students in two different courses were used as comparison groups provides an element missing in many studies of this type.” Anderson and Lawton would like to acknowledge the support of Dr. John Cragan, Communication and Journalism Department, and Dr. Rich Rexeisen, Marketing Department, in this research.
