University Libraries is shining a "Spotlight on Scholarship" of the Marketing Department through a month-long exhibit and reception.
The exhibit features the research and recent scholarly output of Old Dominion's Department of Marketing. The department, located in the College of Business and Public Administration, boasts diverse research programs that include marketing ethics, male and female role portrayals in advertising, consumers' financial well-being, retailing and customer services. The exhibit in the Learning Commons through the end of November features statements of current research, as well as selected journal articles and books from the past five years.
Marketing department faculty members will discuss some of their recent work at a reception from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12, in the Learning Commons Conference Room (1310). Faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend.

In 2010, the Climate Change and Sea Level Rise Initiative (CCSLRI) was created from the belief that ODU can provide leadership and solutions to the effects of climate change and sea level rise in the urban coastal environment of Hampton Roads.
Since then, CCSLRI has facilitated awareness, research and education in all aspects of climate change and sea level rise, both on campus and in the community. Because of our location, there is special emphasis on adaptation to increased flooding. There are many other aspects of climate change affecting coastal cities, such as public health or disaster preparedness, that the initiative also addresses.
ODU modeling and simulation researchers Joshua Behr and Rafael Diaz have been working on research to better understand and address community vulnerability to major storms. Results of surveys and other research have led to a series of 16 maps that address each of the vulnerabilities studied (e.g., mobility, medical, financial) with the hope that community planners can properly assess, prepare for, and recover from a severe storm event.
From October 24 through November, these maps will be on display in the Learning Commons @ Perry Library. Also on display is information about the Climate Change and Sea Level Rise Initiative, featuring some recent publications by ODU researchers.
