The COE partners with other Louisiana Tech academic colleges to host additional “Living with Technology” lectures throughout the year. Each will focus on aspects of how technology impacts everyday life.
Dr. Chris Martin, Dean of Business, said: “Technology has changed the way we work, live, and teach. Business colleges embed technology into every aspect of their curriculum. Both students and the community enjoy learning from Dr. I know that. McCumber, Scott, Guai.”
