Klinger and Board Provide More Than
The CBAPP Business Advisory Board
members have been handpicked from some of the area’s top business executives
because of their desire to help CBAPP become a better college, not because their
titles look good in print. In the past year, they’ve offered internships within
their organizations, spoken in classes, helped write grants, met with faculty
candidates, and much more. And Ernie Klinger, the board’s executive committee
chairman and the chief financial officer for coffee house chain It’s A Grind,
has gone even further by teaching a class last semester and developing the
curriculum for a new graduate level course that he’ll teach next spring.
10 Questions...on the Rise and
Fall of Unions for Frank Stricker
The last year has
proven staggering for auto, steel, and other industrial unions in which they’ve
made huge concessions with companies and lost many of their members to early
retirement incentive plans. At the same time, unions in service industries with
record numbers of immigrant and female members are thriving. Here, Frank
Stricker, professor of history, and the former coordinator of the Labor Studies
program within CBAPP, explains why these new unions are on the rise at the very
same time their good ol’ boy industrial counterparts are feeling an
unprecedented pinch. Full story

grade-point average and received a job offer from Ernst and Young, where he

Accounting Society, he also led the organization to some unprecedented
achievements that will pave the way for the Big Four to look at CSUDH
accounting students with newfound respect.

Press, professor of computer information systems, co-authored a
report delivered at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development in
July, titled, “The Digital Divide Report: ICT Diffusion Index 2005.” The report
suggests that there is a deepening digital divide between developed and
developing nations, calling for publicly funded, neutral-access backbone
networks with points of presence in every rural village – a similar strategy to
the one used by the U.S. National Science Foundation in seeding the Internet in
the late-1980s. This continues Press’s research on bringing the Internet to
developing nations. Click here to read the February 2005 The Report
interview with Press on the feasibility of such a project.
