Current Research Programs

Repatriation And Turnover: The Role Of Culture And Expectations
“Measuring Chinese and American Students’ Attitudes towards Poverty.”
The purpose of the research is to compare the extent to which college students majoring in Business and other disciplines are aware of poverty in their communities and around the globe. Surveys will be administered to students attending colleges in the U.S. and colleges on different continents. Currently, 80% of the world's population lives in poverty. In light of the recent downturn in the global economy, poverty rates are likely to increase dramatically in both developed and developing economies. In 2001, government leaders around the world created the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) aimed at halving the numbers of people living in poverty. They plan to reach this halfway mark b y 2015. The survey may help to provide an understanding of the presence and impact of poverty from local and global perspectives. The results of the study may be a useful tool in helping to prepare students for working in a global environment. The survey participants, by virtue of responding to the questionnaire will, themselves, become increasingly conscious of this social ill and the possible influence, directly or indirectly, it has on overall workplace performance.
