2014 Ridenour Faculty Fellowship Conference Virginia Tech Research Center - Arlington, North Glebe Road, Arlington, VA, United States
Oct 23 all day The Ridenour Faculty Fellowship Conference (RFFC) – designed to foster the creative advancement of interdisciplinary faculty and students in the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) in public administration and policy, urban and regional planning, and government and international affairs – is moving from Blacksburg to the National Capital Region for the Fall 2014 session with a new component that further enhances its focus. The two-day conference will convene at the Virginia Tech Research Center — Arlington on Oct, 23, supported in part by the Virginia Tech National Capital Region Office of the Vice President. The 2014 conference, the third in the series, will explore the urgency of problems associated with resilience. “While the conference will continue to feature key speakers and panel participants from academia, politics, and the corporate world, the new program format will also allow two winning research groups to organize parts of the conference with guest speakers and workshops that help them realize the next steps of their projects,” said Anne Khademian, director of SPIA.
