MDN: ServiceMaster Endows U of M Anthropology Fellowship
Memphis-based ServiceMaster Global Holdings Inc. has endowed a design and ethnography fellowship at the University of Memphis with a multiyear, $42,000 grant.
The residential and commercial service provider announced the fellowship will benefit one student per school year in the College of Arts and Sciences’ anthropology department.
“Businesses are beginning to embrace ethnography to better understand and serve their clients,” said Tom Nenon, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, in a written statement. “It’s an emerging field nationwide.”
The students will work with Kevin Newton, ServiceMaster’s on-staff anthropologist.
