Business College collects elite award

The College of Business is among only 30 schools in the world to receive the Innovations That Inspire Award. The award, from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, recognizes the college's global efforts, such as associate professor Scott Grawe's unique way of explaining the international supply chain. He and 27 students followed the supply chain backwards, physically tracing a spatula in an Ames Target store to the shipping docks in Lost Angeles, then back to the factory in China, where it was produced.

An article written by associate professor of history Michael Christopher Low recently won the 2016 Alice Hamilton Prize, from the American Society for Environmental History. Low's article "Ottoman Infrastructures of the Saudi Hydro-State: The Technopolitics of Pilgrimage and Potable Water in the Hijaz," was published in Comparative Studies in Society and History in October 2015.
