MTSU faculty and staff appeared on WGNS Radio recently to share information about an upcoming guest lecture, the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Week and activities planned for Homecoming 2018.
The details were shared during the Oct. 15 “Action Line” program with veteran host Bart Walker. The live program was broadcast on FM 100.5, 101.9 and AM 1450 from the WGNS studio in downtown Murfreesboro. If you missed it, you can listen to a podcast of the show here.
Guests and their topics were as follows:
• Dr. David Carleton, interim chair of the Department of Global Studies and Human Geography, discussed the upcoming guest lecture by Rick Steves, travel author, TV host and humanitarian. Steves will visit campus Nov. 8 for a public lecture from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom to discuss his book “Travel as a Political Act.”
Global Studies and Human Geography is a new MTSU major that offers exciting academic and career paths for students seeking knowledge and direct experience in a constantly changing world.
• Joshua Aaron, assistant professor of management and the new holder of the Pam Wright Chair of Entrepreneurship in the MTSU Jones College of Business, discussed his new role and the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Week.
