College of Business selects Gabel as first Lusk Faculty Member of Distinction
Dr. Anthony "Tony" Gabel
is the first William and Anita Lusk Faculty Member of Distinction at Fort Hays
The Lusk Faculty Member of
Distinction was created to provide recognition of and support for an
outstanding faculty member in FHSU's College of Business and Entrepreneurship.
Dr. Mark Bannister, Dean, said the
award was intended to build the quality of the college’s faculty expertise and
its research portfolio.
"It provides resources to allow
funding of a mixture of summer supplemental salary for research and additional
operating support for research assistants, travel or equipment and is awarded
through an annual competitive application process," Bannister said.
"Dr. Gabel will use his funding award to develop qualitative case studies
from the Chinese business and legal environment."
Gabel said he was excited and
humbled to have been selected as the first Lusk Faculty Member of Distinction.
"I plan to use the opportunity
afforded by the award to further my research in the use of law for strategic
competitive advantage in foreign jurisdictions," Gabel said. "This
award permits my colleague and co-author Dr. Justin Evans and me to travel to
China to interview industry leaders about their use of law in their
decision-making process. We will be spending nearly two and one-half weeks in
Shanghai, Urumqi and Beijing conducting on-the-ground interviews.
"I sincerely thank the Lusk
family for their generosity in establishing this award."
