Weatherford City Sales Tax Project As mentioned in the August Newsletter, it has been 10 years since the citizens of the City of Weatherford approved an extension of a one-penny sales tax to benefit the community. As you may recall, a portion of that revenue ($7 million) assisted in the construction of the Pioneer Cellular Event Center.

Have You Tried Breaking Up?... We Did And This Is What We Found, Phillip Joe Fitzsimmons Oct 2019

Have You Tried Breaking Up?... We Did And This Is What We Found, Phillip Joe Fitzsimmons

Faculty Articles & Research

Abstract: This presentation is targeted primarily toward new repository administrators. During early projects on the Digital Commons platform in 2016 we uploaded full-issue PDFs for some titles. Soon we uploaded the Administrative Issues Journal and Mythlore with links to each article of the issue homepage. The difference in usage numbers of journals with full-issue PDFs to those that are broken down to the article level is huge. The result is that we returned to break up the full-issue items down.

In this presentation Phillip Fitzsimmons will show usage reports showing the low numbers of items presented as full-issue PDFs with ...

aCAdemicS: The Newsletter of the SWOSU College of Arts & Sciences

Approximately one year ago (September 5, 2018, to be exact), Dr. Peter Grant announced his intent to retire as Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences. That his official retirement date would not be for another ten months was testament to his reputation as a meticulous planner. It also showed his unabating commitment to the welfare of SWOSU. Indeed, for the four months after my own selection to succeed Dean Grant, he arranged a series of informational meetings to ease the transition and to relieve the burden of “recreating the wheel”.

Weatherford City Sales Tax Proposal

It is hard to believe, but it has been nearly 10 years since the citizens of the City of Weatherford approved an extension of a one-penny sales tax to benefit the community. As you may recall, a portion of that revenue ($7 million) went to assist in the construction of the Pioneer Cellular Event Center.

Currently, the City is considering a renewal of that sales tax for future community projects. SWOSU has asked to be included in the upcoming proposal. We are currently entertaining and contemplating suggestions for an institutional project. Keep in mind that ...

Letter From The Editors, Administrative Issues Journal Editors

Administrative Issues Journal

The summer 2019 edition of the AIJ begins with an exploration of the relationships between clients, headhunters, and candidates throughout the executive recruitment process in Executive recruitment triads from an agency theory perspective by Carlos Baldo, Ramón Valle-Cabrera, and Miguel Olivas-Lujan.


Executive Recruitment Triads From An Agency Theory Perspective, Carlos Miguel Baldo, Ramon Valle, Miguel Olivas-Lujan Jun 2019

Executive Recruitment Triads From An Agency Theory Perspective, Carlos Miguel Baldo, Ramon Valle, Miguel Olivas-Lujan

Administrative Issues Journal

The relationships between clients, headhunters, and candidates during the executive search process has not been researched using agency theory as the theoretical framework. This is puzzling, as the existence of common objectives and information asymmetries between these three parties make agency theory an ideal one to explain the interactions between them. We addressed this gap by developing six testable propositions for researchers. Practitioners may also benefit from the study as understanding the human assumptions in the process of executive recruitment may help increase the chances of achieving positive outcomes.
