October 7, 2016

BATON ROUGE – Keri Larson, assistant professor in the Department of Information Systems & Decision Sciences, is one of eight LSU faculty – and the only one from the E. J. Ourso College of Business – selected to represent the university as part of the Southeastern Conference’s 2016-2017 Faculty Travel Program.

In all, more than 100 faculty members from all 14 SEC universities will take part in the program, which provides financial assistance for those selected to travel to other SEC universities to exchange ideas, develop grant proposals, conduct research and deliver lectures or performances.

Program participants from each SEC university will travel throughout the academic year.

“The SEC Faculty Travel Program continues to garner significant interest from faculty members across the conference, and we are encouraged by how our universities have identified a range of individuals to participate,” said Torie Johnson, executive director of the SEC’s academic initiative, SECU. “This program allows us to facilitate collaboration that stretches from the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields to include the arts and community engagement.”

Larson holds a BA in Law, Letters and Society from the University of Chicago and a PhD in Management Information Systems from the University of Georgia. She teaches data management and business intelligence and researches unstructured text analytics and responses to information and communications technology (ICT) innovation.
