An APSU faculty member has been selected to join 34 other American and Canadian educators as they participate in a weeklong “Roundtable” at Oxford University in England.

Dr. William H. Kraus, associate professor of public management, will attend the Roundtable March 12-18. The Oxford Roundtable was established years ago as a colloquium for small groups of academic, government and business leaders to engage in discussions that affect states and nations.

At the March 2005 Roundtable, which will focus on Human Resource Management Issues in the 21st Century, Kraus will present a paper, titled “How Contemporary Human Resources Will Impact and Be Impacted by the Aging of the Workforce,” highlighting people in their 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s in the labor force.

Kraus came to APSU in 2003 from California where, for the past 40 years, he had worked as both a university educator and city manager. He currently serves on the board of directors of the Tennessee Political Science Association. In that capacity, he is helping plan the group's Annual State Conference in April at which he also will be a presenter.

Oxford Roundtable participants include ministers of education, legislators, governors, corporate business leaders, university presidents, lawyers and physicians.
