Research Colloquium

SE@G-sponsored workshops highlight empirical papers and encourage disciplinary and multi-disciplinary studies of how organizations contribute to critical and specific societal outcomes.

Our first research colloquium, "Organizational Analyses of Social Outcomes," welcomed 19 faculty and students from nine universities in May 2013, in order to encourage disciplinary and multi-disciplinary analyses of how both for-profit and non-profit organizations are contributing to critical and specific societal outcomes.

This colloquium assembled a select group of scholars that are conducting empirical research on broadly defined social outcomes, within the nonprofit sector in the United States and elsewhere. Seven papers were presented by faculty invitees, and participants engaged in a forum to provide feedback on the early-stage research papers of four invited doctoral students as well. The most promising of the student papers received a $5,000 award from SE@G.
