SWDSI President’s Message

SWDSI is here to welcome you. If you participate in our region, thank you and we hope you find these pages informative. If you are new to the region, take a few minutes and get to know us.

SWDSI conducts our annual meeting in conjunction with the Federation of Business Disciplines. Our 2020 SWDSI Conference was certainly one to remember in San Antonio. The impact of Covid-19 on our meeting will not be soon forgotten. We certainly missed our friends who were not able to join us this year, and are looking forward to seeing them with some new friends in Galveston in March 2022. I think our conference provides a great value for everyone who attends.

The Call for Papers is posted on the SWDSI website (http://www.swdsi.org/). If you would like to help or have any suggestions please contact our Program Chair, Dr. Venu Gopolakrishna-Remani (venugopal@uttyler.edu) directly. Moody Gardens in Galveston will be a new experience for our conference. It is an exciting venue with fun for your entire family. They offer golf, aquariums, a rain forest habitat, theaters, and other fun attractions.

If you are new to the region or at a university or a community college that does not normally attend SWDSI, please consider joining us in Galveston. We encourage students at all levels to join us in a supportive environment to present and discuss your research. PhD students also are encouraged to participate in the Doctoral Student Consortium.

It is my privilege to serve as SWDSI president this year and an honor to join a long line of great individuals. Our mission is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, provide teaching and professional development, and provide information to improve classroom instruction, which I believe we do very well.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me our any of our officers if you have questions about our region or the 2022 conference.
