When Wegmans Food Markets Inc. announced plans this week to close all its Chase-Pitkins Home & Garden Centers, RIT’s Professor Eugene Fram wasted no time sharing word with University News. “Let the media know I’m available to comment,” he told us.
Fram, the J. Warren McClure Research Professor of Marketing in RIT’s College of Business, is a nationally recognized expert on retail. With the help of University News, his insight on this important story was shared throughout the local media– newspaper, television and radio.
The expertise of our faculty and their willingness to share it with local and national media are critically important to enhancing the university’s reputation. RIT experts like Fram, Professor Robert Manning (consumer finance), Professor Ron Hira (outsourcing), Professor Amit Batabyal (economics), Professor Susan Barnes (social computing), Professor Warren Sackler (hospitality) and many others help to showcase the extent of our intellectual resources. Their contributions are simply invaluable.
