* Spring 2020 Purple Friday Patrol Sign Ups Now Available!

Purple Friday Patrol: Wear Purple—Get Prizes!

Be on the lookout for the Purple Friday Patrol every week and sign up here to pass out the purple praise!

On Fridays, we wear purple, and each week, the PFP will reward students to promote school spirit both on campus and online through the use of the hashtag, #UEPurpleFriday.

Purple Friday Patrol Teams are made up of members of the campus community including faculty, administrators, and other interested parties, usually from the same department or group.

PFP Teams can sign up for one or more Fridays per semester and the Office of University Relations will supply Purple Swag Packs to the designated PFP Team for the week. PFP Teams are invited to add a personal touch to the swag packs, if desired. (ex. departmental swag, promo for an upcoming event, etc.)

Purple Friday Patrol Teams: What’s my responsibility?
1. Sign up for at least one Friday per semester.
2. Visit the office of University Relations in Sampson Hall during the week of your assigned Friday to pick up your Purple Swag Packs
3. Pass out the purple praise. The distribution format is up to you. You can pass out swag packs to the first few purple people you see, or you can stagger the rewards throughout the day. If you’d prefer to reward online participants, you’re free to promote on official UE social media accounts.
4. Pics or it didn’t happen. Remember, we’re trying to promote school spirit both on campus and online through the use of the hashtag, #UEPurpleFriday, so be sure to snap a picture with your purple people! You can either share them online through an official UE social media account if you run one, or send them to uerelations@evansville.edu to post on the main UE social media accounts.

* UE Professor Awarded Best Theoretical Paper of the Year

Yolanda Obaze, PhD, assistant professor of supply chain management and director of the UE Center for Supply Chain Management, was awarded Best Theoretical Paper of the Year at the 50th annual Decision Sciences Institute (DSI) Conference, November 23 – 25, 2019.

The Decision Sciences Institute is a global society of more than 2,700 academics and practitioners dedicated to creating, developing, fostering, and disseminating knowledge to improve managerial decisions and decision-making involving systems and people. The Institute, which celebrated its 50th Anniversary this year, hosts an annual conference to achieve its mission. The conference, held in New Orleans, Louisiana, was themed on “Transforming Decision Sciences Through Emergent Technologies.”

Obaze’s paper, titled “The Social innovation of community-based logistics and supply chain management,” was one of more than 200 submitted, and was the winner of the Theoretical Paper Category.

The abstract for the paper reads: “The application of logistics and supply chain management (LSCM) into community-based initiatives allows for the collaboration of mixed social and economic networks and the innovative and improved movement of value-added resources to end-consumers in underserved communities. The literature review paper introduces a conceptual framework, accessible to scholars and practitioners that describe how the existing, dynamic and innovative capabilities of using LSCM supports social innovation and further creates social value in the community-based context. The proposed framework offers a basis for further empirical studies.
