Three HRA faculty will be presenting their research at the annual conference of the International Council on Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education in San Diego in late July.
Dan Crafts’s co-authored refereed paper, “Sexual Harassment: A Focus on Youth Employment and the Evolution of Employer Liability and Managerial Practice,” explores a number of issues related to sexual harassment and the underage worker in the hospitality industry.
Stephanie Hein’s poster session, “A Serving of Sustainability with a Side of Technology: The Case for Tracking the Effectiveness of University Foodservice Sustainability Efforts,” examines the effectiveness of the Carbon Foodprint system as it relates to sustainable practices in a university dining center.
Finally, Melissa Dallas will lead a symposium entitled “Successful Tactics for Academically and Professionally Qualifying Faculty: Debunking Some Myths” in an effort to assist administrators in qualifying hospitality faculty who earned their advanced degrees in disciplines such as business, law or education.
