Kelley faculty and staff in Indianapolis have been BUSY with trips, workshops, conferences, teaching, conducting research, relaxation (for some!) and MORE this summer.
Click through the photo slideshow below to see what just a few of your colleagues have been up to.
This is just the start of our "What I Did This Summer" essay -- Let us know if you have something to add, or if we missed you!
And the fun doesn't stop there!
Here's what else you were up to this summer:
"We took our annual family trip to Holiday World Splash & Safari! Also, I attended the EMBAC Regional Conference at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland!" --Rachel E. Edwards, Assistant Director, Business of Medicine Physician MBA.
“Vacationed in Glacier National Park for 10 days. Overnighted at three of the historic lodges e.g, Glacier Park Lodge, Prince of Wales in Waterton, Canada, and Lake McDonald Lodge. Rented a new 31' "Minnie Winnie" in Spokane. Only 26 glaciers remain. All will be gone by 2030. Enjoyed the scenic Rockies in a white water raft and with a trout on the end of a fly rod.” -- Bob Grimm, clinical associate professor of management.
“The doctor yanked out the knee I have had for multiple decades and put in a metal one. Now I’m bionic :)." Kim Donahue, senior lecturer in marketing.
“I was fortunate to have a mini family reunion (11 of us) in Orlando and Daytona.” -- Larry Smith, Managing Director, Tobias Center for Leadership Excellence.
“Our annual 'big trip' was a two-week cruise on the Baltic. We flew to Stockholm a couple of days early to roam around a bit before the cruise. We then went to Helsinki, St. Petersburg (overnight stay), Tallinn, Gdansk, Berlin, Copenhagen, then three stops in Norway (Stavanger, Eidfjord, and Bergen).
Tallinn, Estonia, has most of its medieval old town intact. Did you know that Estonia is known from very good chocolate? I brought some back for the faculty secretaries. You can ask their opinion.
There’s a small town in central Norway called Voss. We stopped at Fleischer’s Hotel (family owned and operated for six generations) for lunch. Across the street from the hotel, in a small park, is a statue of Knute Rockne holding an American football. The connection? He was born in a village just outside of this town. He’s likely the most famous person who came from that area.” -- Mark Ippolito, senior lecturer in operations management.
“I am working in the Phillipines and El Salvadore (Management Consulting) for MetLife this summer. This keeps me current on leading-edge approaches in a global economy that I can leverage in the classroom.” -- David Steele, visiting lecturer.
"I attended the College Source User Conference in San Diego in June. I became certified in TES, which is Transfer Evaluation System. It's used by 6,000 colleges across the US and internationally. It is a centralized system for students and staff to determine course equivalencies to make a smoother transfer process for students." -- Laura Watson, Undergraduate Admissions Specialist.
"Completed five research papers that had been 'in progress' and submitted all five to various peer-reviewed journals in order to help KSBI meet AACSB qualifications in the next cycle. Will attempt to learn Zoom before courses begin.
I also helped my daughter, Colleen, and her husband, Matt, move from their house in Hendricks County to a house in Marion County in order to meet the 'touching county' requirement for the Hamilton County Carmel Fire Department. Matt is a firefighter and EMT with the City of Carmel. Colleen and Matt are both KSB graduates.
I also play doubles tennis two mornings a week for two hours with other old men. I play golf two mornings a week, again in a senior league with other old men, several of which are 80+ years old. I have to mow my lawn several times a week in order to keep up with my neighbors who are basically retired and have nothing else to do." -- Glen A. Larsen, Professor of Finance.
Kelley faculty and staff also participated in the Summer Celebration downtown. Here are a few photos from the event.
Many Business of Medicine Physician MBA students and Kelley faculty and staff headed to Washington, DC, as part of an immersive healthcare policy course taught by Julie Manning Magid.
