Message from the Dean

Steve Lorenzet

As the fall semester draws to a close it provides an opportunity to reflect on the accomplishments of our students, faculty and alumni. Our students have competed in numerous prestigious competitions, representing themselves and the College of Business Administration admirably.  Likewise, our faculty have continued to make significant contributions to teaching, research and practice.  A sample of our student and faculty achievements are highlighted in this newsletter, as are the accomplishments of one of our recent alumni.

In addition, I am pleased to announce our progress at the midpoint of the 2012-13 campaign. We are well on our way to finalizing Vision 2020 — our vision toward the year 2020 — and our strategic plan to realize the vision. Vision 2020 includes a focus on innovation and academic distinction while our strategic plan emphasizes:  (1) curricular innovation, (2) international partnerships, (3) making deeper connections with the professional community and (4) further developing the considerable talents of our faculty as teacher-scholars.  As you will see from some of the highlights listed below, we are making substantial progress.

We hope you enjoy the contents of this newsletter and look forward to providing you with additional updates in the future.  I send you, your family and friends my best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season.

Steve Lorenzet, Ph.D.
