James Hagen chosen to present paper at Oxford Round Table

SXU professor travels to England to give presentation on long-term care

Chicago (Feb. 1, 2007) – James Hagen, Ph.D., professor in Saint Xavier University’s Graham School of Management, has been invited to present a paper this summer on long-term care at the Oxford Round Table at the University of Oxford, England, an international think tank of scholars, policymakers, and other subject experts. 

The round table will be composed of interdisciplinary, international experts, who will discuss quality-of-life issues for senior citizens. Longer life expectancies have not only created the need for better health care, but have produced greater demands for other services to ensure safety, dignity and happiness in advanced age. Enhancing the quality of life for seniors is a critical issue facing governments worldwide. The results of these deliberations will be published and made available to policymakers and academic libraries around the world.  

Hagen is director of the Graham School of Management’s Public and Non-profit Management Program and the new Disaster Preparedness and Management Certificate Program. He is a licensed nursing home administrator and is involved nationally in educational programs and providing training through state organizations and long-term care communities. 
“I am honored to be chosen for this opportunity to share my expertise and to interact with international scholars,” Hagen said. “It is through these relationships that current practices and creative thinking will combine into new approaches to help our loved ones and seniors in many other nations. This information and vision for the future can then be brought back to Saint Xavier University to benefit our students by broadening programs and expanding international perspectives.”
