Student Eric Ngo and Michael Rudy, associate professor of political science and international relations, presented co-authored research at the International Studies Association-Midwest conference, Nov. 21. Their paper, “Leading the way: Leadership experience and International Crises,” explores how a leader’s past military experiences shape their use of force behavior. Employing the LEAD data on military experiences, Ngo and Rudy review how various experiences including military service, education, combat and rebel involvement shape a leader’s decision-making.

Alumni Fredericka Fleschner, Jennifer Balog, Lindsay Corsale and Ann Roth were among 100 St. Louis-area educators to receive Emerson’s Excellence in Teaching awards. The awards pay tribute to area educators – from kindergarten teachers to college professors – for their achievements and dedication to the field of education. The awards program is sponsored annually by St. Louis-based Emerson, a diversified global manufacturer and technology leader. This year, in lieu of an in-person awards ceremony, Emerson recognized winners with custom gift boxes, which included an engraved crystal apple keepsake from Tiffany and Co., a certificate of achievement and other celebratory items.
