Business professor presents
at NACRA meeting in Canada

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. Max Douglas, professor of management in the organizational department of the Indiana State University School of Business, recently presented a case study at the meetings of the North American Case Research Association (NACRA) in Banff, Canada.

The case study, entitled "Coffee Grounds: Community Voice, Not Corporate Choice," was one of 11 cases selected for presentation in the Business and Society Ethics sessions. The case centers on the complex dynamics between an entrepreneur and a local university. Students who use the case are challenged to apply stakeholder theory, ethical decision-making paradigms and entrepreneurial research to analyze the case.

NACRA is the premier case writing association in the world focusing on experiential and applied learning. Douglas was assisted in the writing of this case by ISU professors Herschel Chait and Veronica Dougherty.

Douglas has been teaching at ISU for 34 years and is the past recipient of several teaching awards including the Caleb Mills Distinguished Teaching Award.
