ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA -- Have you thought about your skills and how they affect the world and the economy? Antje Mays has.

Mays, a professor and head of monograph and acquisitions at Winthrop University's Dacus Library, will present her findings Thursday, Feb. 4, at the next installment of the Provost's Spotlight on Scholarship Series.

In "Ambient Knowledge: Human Capital Development Strategies for U.S. Economic Competitiveness," Mays will present recent research showing how employees and their skill shortages and/or mismatches impact U.S. economic competitiveness. Drawing from human capital theory, Mays will offer educational strategies for developing necessary skills that are in short supply in certain career circles, including critical thinking, integrity and good citizenship.

This “Lunch and Learn” sessions will be held at 11 a.m. in Dinkins Auditorium. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch. Beverages will be provided.

The series is currently in its second year and serves as a showcase for outstanding faculty research.
