Dr. Sime Curkovic, assistant professor of management, will discuss "Greening the Supply Chain through ISO 14000" at 8 a.m. in Room 2150 of Schneider Hall on the WMU campus. A continental breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. and parking will be available in the nearby Fetzer Center parking lot.

Before joining the WMU faculty, Curkovic worked in supply management for General Motors in the United States, Europe and Mexico. A graduate of General Motors Institute, now Kettering University, he earned his doctoral degree from Michigan State University. Last year Curkovic received the Buffa Prize from the Decision Sciences Institute for the year's most outstanding doctoral dissertation. His current research focuses on environmentally sensitive supply management practices.
