October 05, 2016

Dr. Loren O’Connor presents a presentation medal at the Third International Conference on Social Sciences held in Bali, Indonesia. Looking on are Isanka P. Gamage, managing director of the International Institute of Knowledge Management (TIIKM) from Sri Lanka and a conference organizer, Margrit Eichler, professor emerita from the University of Toronto in Canada; and Associate Professor Tim Allen from the University of Sydney, Australia.

Assistant Vice Chancellor Loren O’Connor was the conference chair for the Third International Conference on Social Sciences held in Bali, Indonesia, in September. The conference focused on social science and achieving global sustainability and drew researchers, educators and scholars from around the world, according to O’Connor.

“As members of an interconnected society, we all have the responsibility to address important social issues and collaborate on solutions,” said O’Connor. “It is essential to bring together experts from different fields and disciplines to discuss issues and identify future areas of concern.”
