K-State Polytechnic welcomes professor from Osaka University in Japan
Professor Dr. Charles Weathers, professor of labor economics from Osaka City University, Japan, was a guest in Greg Stephens' Supervisory Management class this past week.

Weathers informally answered student questions related to management, motivation, education, employee and work related issues. Weathers has spoken to the class in previous years and has returned to campus while he works on a research project on childcare and education issues in the state.  

"Many of the same trends experienced in the U.S. are happening in Japan," according to Weathers, "though women and gender issues fare better in the U.S."

If you have any questions, please contact Greg Stephens, professor, at
