Faculty Teaching and Learning Lunches

Hosted by the Office of Academic Affairs

Meridith Symons will have lunch tickets available for you to pick up in advance, and you may choose what you'd like to eat in Dillin Hall. You may use the meal ticket before or after the presentation, but you might want to arrive a little early to get through Dillin lines prior to the meeting.

Proposed Sport Management Major

Friday, September 8 from 12:15-1:15 p.m. in Dillin NW
Presented by Denise Farag and members of the SMG team
RSVP

The Sport Management ("SMG") minor launched in 2012 quickly became one of Linfied's most popular minors. The interdisciplinary minor was the result of collaboration between faculty members in Business, Economics, Philosophy, and Health, Human Performance, and Athletics. The Mass Commuincations department joined as a collaborating department in 2015. The team overseeing the SMG minor believe the time is ripe to move forward with a Sport Management major. Persons interested in learning more about the proposed new major are invited to come.
