GBP Newsletter mast
GBP Spotlight : Senior Assistant Dean Dr. Carolyn Evans
Dr. Carolyn Evans, Senior Assistant Dean for Graduate Business

I hope that your Spring quarter is off to a great start! I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our inaugural GBP Newsletter. We'll be producing it every two weeks, and it will provide a single place to go for the dates important to your graduate business experience at SCU. From events sponsored by our student networks to academic deadlines, our newsletter is a single source of key information. And we welcome any comments that you have on this new product!

I'd also like to announce a new email address for our offices - gbp@scu.edu.  This is a general purpose address and provides a simple, easy-to-remember way to get in touch.

Finally, I want to cordially invite you to a series of Graduate Student Forums that we'll be holding in April. Two will be held here at SCU, and we're excited that we'll also be holding two online via Zoom. At these meetings, we'll discuss some of the exciting new initiatives that the Graduate Business Programs Office has planned for the months and years ahead. 

Best wishes for a successful Spring quarter!

Warm Regards,

Carolyn
