The Robert H. Smith School of Business community is mourning the loss of Dr. Brian Shaffer, a Tyser Teaching Fellow in the Logistics, Business and Public Policy department. Dr. Shaffer was killed in an automobile accident in West Virginia on Saturday, April 5.
Smith School professors are ready to infuse undergraduate business courses with a healthy dose of East Asia. Five Smith professors were invited to participate in a summer institute with the goal of integrating East Asia into their classes last month. The institute was made possible by a generous four-year grant from the Freeman Foundation to develop undergraduate curriculum in East Asian studies at the University of Maryland, and is part of an ongoing series of summer institutes.
