The faculty and students are headed to the great whitish north for its (first annual) departmental retreat, featuring presentations from Economics of the Firm (my personal favorite), Game Theory, and Urban Economics courses. It’s not too late to sign up.
Speaking for the economics of the firm course, there will be presentations on:
*** why Lawrence outsources its food service (can’t we do this ourselves?)
*** why Lawrence has its own campus security (why not use a professional security company?)
*** why Lawrence has its own vehicles for student use (why not use Enterprise? They pick you up!)
*** why universities have endowments, and how reliant Lawrence is on its endowment (I’m not sure, and I don’t know… looks to be a good one)
If you can’t make it this weekend, we hope to see you Monday for tea!
