The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Dennis Ahlburg Appointed to Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs.

Greco, Michael D.

This article reports on the appointment of Dennis Ahlburg, professor of human resources and industrial relations in the Industrial Relations Center at the Carlson School of Management, to the Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs for 2001-2002. At the time of his appointment, Ahlburg was engaged in a project investigating why employees leave companies, research that is particularly crucial to Minnesota, where turnover among employees exceeds the national average. The article includes a discussion of Ahlburg's plan to use the resources provided by his appointment to carry out the empirical work at the heart of the study: surveying a selected group of employees every four months over the course of several years to track their employment behavior and determine the factors that underlie them. In addition, Ahlburg plans to use the resources to begin work on two extensions of the study: an analysis of employee turnover in the long-term-care industry in Minnesota, and a project on recruitment and retention of childcare workers in the state for the Department of Children, Families, and Learning.
