Publish & Flourish is an annual event co-hosted by UWT Library, Office of Research, and the bookstore that recognizes the accomplishments of our staff and faculty who have published within the past year.  Because of social distancing, we are not able to hold an in-person celebration at this time, but we very much hope to raise a glass with all of you in celebration at the first safe in-person opportunity.

It concludes that their differing political stands are in part due to their differing political and religious contexts. It is an important and timely study relevant to anyone concerned about the global rise of religious politics.”—Mark Juergensmeyer  Read more about the work of Dr. Etga Ugur

Milgard School of Business Professor Eugene Sivadas!  The omni-channel is different from the multi-channel. It recognizes not only that customers access goods and services in multiple ways, but also that they are likely doing this at the same time; comparing prices on multiple websites, and seamlessly switching between mobile and desktop devices. With the strong theoretical foundation that users have come to expect, Marketing Channel Strategy:  An Omni Channel Approach also offers lots of practical exercises and applications to help students understand how to design and implement omni-channel strategies in reality.  Read more about the work Professor Sivadas has done on omni-channels in marketing!
