Bragg Appointed New Associate Dean
Kaye Bragg describes herself as a “mass-transit person,” meaning she likes
the opportunities to interact with those around her in trains and subways.
It’s a symbolic way of understanding how she has worked with her colleagues
at CSU Bakersfield (CSUB) for the past 18 years as a teacher and
administrator – not in a bubble like a car moving alongside them on a
highway at 65 miles per hour, but working alongside them to mold decisive
action. When she begins her new role as CBAPP’s associate dean later this
month, she will rely on such skills as a key member of the CBAPP team moving
toward AACSB accreditation and as the primary administrator responsible for
both learning assessment and pushing the undergraduate programs forward.
Bragg starts her new role within CBAPP on Aug. 20.
Series: Going Green
Throughout the summer, 10 Questions will be
devoted to the intersections of business, public policy, and the environment.
10 Questions…on PG&E as
a Green Business Leader for Jennifer Zerwer
Providing natural gas and electricity for most of central and northern
California, Pacific Gas & Electric is one of the largest utilities in the
country. Its size and the inherent governing oversight as a utility would
suggest it would be far from a leader in expanding societal norms, yet PG&E is
considered one of a handful of organizations pushing the nation’s environmental
envelope. Here, Jennifer Zerwer of the utility’s environmental team details some
of groundbreaking efforts they are making, how the utility’s uncommon business
model allows them to be so committed to going green, and whether their strides
might rub off on the private sector.

M.B.A. Online Gets CNN.com Endorsement
A recent story on CNNMoney.com dealt with the common challenge many people
face when evaluating graduate-level online programs: How do you know if the
program is legitimate? Of the reported 350 different M.B.A. programs in
cyberspace, CSUDH was positioned as not only a worthy program, but one of
the finest available in the world. The story went on to quote Distance
Learning Program Director Warren Ashley and further hail CSUDH’s programs as
one of the most affordable and robust by GetEducated.com.
