Department or Program Summary
The Lundquist College's Department of Management is a collegial and intellectually diverse group whose members publish in and serve as editors or on the editorial review boards of several top management journals. Current members (as of Fall 2022) are Andrew Nelson, Lauren Lanahan, Chris Liu, Ralph Heidl, Alex Murray, Anne Parmigiani, Michael Russo, David Wagner, and Pete Younkin. In addition, emeritus faculty Alan Meyer, Chuck Snow, and William Starbuck remain involved in departmental activities. Many members of the department are also affiliated with the new Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact, a major part of the University's broader efforts to support the study of innovation and entrepreneurship. A hallmark of the department is the diversity of intellectual traditions and research methods employed, and we take great pride in examining these topics from a variety of perspectives. Recent papers have ranged from qualitative studies on the rebirth of synthesizers, to field experiments on racial and gender bias, to longitudinal studies on the effect of SBIR grants on regional employment. By hiring three additional faculty interested in innovation and entrepreneurship, we hope to build upon the department's current strengths and create a vibrant community of scholars examining similar questions from diverse perspectives.

Eugene often appears on lists of the most livable communities in the country. It enjoys the cultural amenities of a larger city – hosting concerts that span the musical spectrum, a world-famous Bach Festival, and many other festivals and celebrations – and the accessible real estate, lack of traffic, and relaxed lifestyle of a small city. Recreational possibilities abound, ranging from hiking or mountain-biking picturesque trails to playing nationally-ranked golf courses to running the same paths on which Olympic athletes train. (Known as Tracktown USA, Eugene hosts events such as the US Olympic Track & Field trials, as well as numerous other sporting events tied to the Pac-12 athletic conference.) Eugene lies just 60 miles from ski resorts in the mountains to the east and 60 miles from the scenic Oregon coast to the west. In the heart of Oregon wine country, Eugene also enjoys a nationally-recognized food scene.
