Engaged Scholarship Conference

Minneapolis, MN


Join us for the inaugural Andrew Van de Ven Engaged Scholarship Conference honoring the legacy of Emeritus Professor Andy Van de Ven. This conference will provide an opportunity for Carlson School doctoral program alumni, current faculty, and invited corporate community partners to deeply engage in a topical subject matter. The theme of this inaugural conference will be global supply chains.

Andy was one of the preeminent scholars of organization and innovation around the world. Additionally, Andy pioneered the tradition of engaged scholarship whereby academics engage with practitioners and policymakers to identify complex and consequential real-world problems and then collect and analyze relevant data over time in partnership with organizations to gain insights that are impactful and actionable.

While we will miss celebrating with Andy due to his passing last month, we look forward to you joining us to honor his work and his legacy.
