Jack Borsting, professor of business administration and dean emeritus of the USC Marshall School of Business, was selected to be a member of a National Academies panel.
The panel will assess the basic research portfolio of the Department of Defense (DoD), including that managed by the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the three military departments and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to determine if the programs in that portfolio are consistent with the definitions of basic research contained in DoD regulations and consistent with the characteristics associated with fundamental research activities.
Borsting is also a member of the Army Science Board and was recently elected to the Fellows selection committee of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences. He will chair the committee in 2006.
Service management scholar Richard Chase, professor of information systems and marketing in the Marshall School, has been selected as one of the 2004 Distinguished OM Scholars by the Operations Management Division of the Academy of Management.
The academy selects honorees based on outstanding service, both in the OM field as a whole and within the Academy of Management and the impact of research accomplishments on the field of OM.
Roger Schroeder of the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota is the other recipient this year.
Chase will accept the award at the OM Division Business Meeting Aug. 9 in New Orleans.
