It has been a while since our last newsletter issue! This does not mean that we have not been busy here at BAEN; on the contrary, this issue showcases many of the accomplishments and activities of BAEN faculty, students and staﬀ. Although summer is already half gone, the heat of Texas still welcomes new visitors to our campus. Our faculty hosted several international peers and some of our own are spending the summer months overseas. As always, we are proud of the BAEN family and what they do for the State of Texas and the nation. Please take a look at this issue and learn more about what our BAEN family has been up to. As always, I welcome any comments or announcements, so please send me our thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a great rest of the summer!
