Bauer Business Minds: Research for the Real World - C. T. Bauer College of Business, University of Houston

Dr. Vanessa Patrick

I am happy to showcase two stories in this newsletter. The first news story features Prof. Funda Sahin who identifies an interesting "win-win" in the use of sustainable products. The second story welcomes Jamey Rootes, retired ex-President of the Houston Texans, and underscores our commitment to be relevant in both research and teaching.

As we wind down the semester, I invite you to mark your calendar for our college-wide Bauer Distinguished Speaker series webinar on May 12 from 1 – 2.30 p.m. with Dr. Ravi Aron.

With warm regards and best wishes,

Dr. Vanessa Patrick

Socially responsible products often have hidden benefits. Professor Funda Sahin with the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston says that can help consumers justify paying more to do good.
