Ph.D. & J.D.


"My primary interest is the boundary where science and policy intersect."



Joe DeSensi



"I've learned most from the things I did wrong.  Hopefully, you can borrow my ladder and start a couple of rungs up."


Compelling Concurrent Sessions


We have received a variety of proposals from institutions across the Commonwealth AND from Tennessee!  You will get a lot from the conference, but it's about what you will take back to your institution that makes this conference an essential part of your professional development!

Notable Workshops


AIR recently did a survey of IR Shops and Excel is the #1 software tool used by IR professionals.  Sharpen your Excel skills by attending one or both of the informative workshops.  Whether you are an Excel Novice or Pro, these sessions will provide useful tips and techniques that will help you save time and increase efficiency.  As a member of KAIR, you can attend a workshop for only $25; that's a fraction of what comparable trainings cost!
