Event Details


Dear Friends in CJBE,
It was great to see those of you who attended the great 2010 meeting that  the Marquette University College of Business Administration hosted! In 2011, Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, has the privilege of playing host for the CJBE Annual Conference from Thursday, July 7 -  Sunday, July 10, 2011.
Attached you will find the Call for Papers.  We also invite you to participate as reviewers, contributing ideas, or assisting in any other way you would like. If you wish to assist as a peer-reviewer of papers, please contact Dr. George F. Gordon: gordong@xavier.edu.
Registration material will soon be on the CJBE Website.   We hope that all of you are considering attending and presenting a paper, a panel, a workshop or something else.  The conference is designed to be interactive, so expect some lively discussion! Also, please encourage your colleagues to attend, especially new faculty who might be wondering how to put the “J” into our business classes,  and how they can participate, take ownership, learn more, or network with colleagues who care about what it means to be a business school in a Jesuit institution.
We “Muskies” at Xavier are looking forward to hosting many of you next summer here in Cincinnati!  If you have any questions, please call or send an e-mail to:
Tim Kloppenborg, CJBE President, kloppenborgt@xavier.edu, 513.745.4905
Ann Marie Tracey, Conference Chair, traceya@xavier.edu, 513.745.3129

14th Annual Participative Conference
“Understanding and Serving all of our Stakeholders”
July 7-10, 2011
Williams College of Business, Xavier University

Subtopic Possibilities:
·         Defining and understanding our stakeholders: Who are all of our student, faculty, staff, community, and other groups? How do we assess their needs and desires? How do we prioritize our efforts to serve them?
·         How do we better understand ourselves and each other: what assessments do we use, how are the results communicated, how do we better serve with this knowledge?
·         How do we use our understanding of Jesuit/Ignatian ideals and pedagogy to better understand and serve our various stakeholder groups?
·         How do we incorporate outside ideas and standards (such as UN Global Compact & Principles for Responsible Management Education, codes of conduct, or certifications) to better serve out stakeholders?
·         How do we engage our outside community in innovative ways to help educate our students and develop our faculty and staff?
·         What best practices can you share briefly as a way to stimulate discussion?
Track Possibilities:
·         Research - Theoretical, empirical, applied, interdisciplinary, and discovery contributions related to the CJBE mission and/or serving stakeholders,
·         Teaching - Contributions which address pedagogical issues facing Jesuit educators, research and experience concerning effective courses (and course segments) addressing the CJBE mission and/or serving stakeholders,
·         Institutional Development - Contributions related to helping Jesuit schools of business develop their visions, structures, processes, people, etc. to reflect Ignatian values and serving stakeholders.
Interactive Session Type Possibilities:

  • Best Practice Panels
Cross-disciplinary articles are encouraged and welcome.
If an author or co-authors are considering submitting an article to the Journal of Jesuit Business Education (JJBE), presenting it as a paper at the annual CJBE conference is the first step in a two-stage peer and editorially reviewed process. Authors would then request the JJBE to have articles then proceed through an editorial review selection process.
Other papers and proposals that generally fit the overall theme of understanding and serving our stakeholders are enthusiastically encouraged.
