New professor in Management Communication

New professor in Management Communication

19 July 2005

Waikato Management School has a new professor.

She's Juliet Roper who is chair of the Department of Management Communication, the School's sustainability convener and principal investigator on two high profile research projects.

Professor Roper gained national attention when she researched New Zealand election campaign communications and proportional representation. She became recognised as Waikato Management School's 'worm expert' - the worm being the measure for public support during televised election debates.

More recently sustainability has been the focus of her research. Commitment to sustainability by New Zealand organisations and their support of New Zealand's ratification of the Kyoto Protocol is one of the major research projects Professor Roper leads.

Her second major study is part of the Ministry of Research, Science and Technology's Science Dialogue Project, which focuses on ways to improve public engagement with issues of controversial science.

As sustainability convener Professor Roper represents Waikato Management School at EABIS, the European Academy for Business in Society and as a direct result of that association has started APABIS - Asia Pacific Academy of Business in Society. It's for postgraduate students and faculty studying aspects of business social responsibility and sustainability, and will hold its inaugural meeting in October.
