FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

California State University, Dominguez Hills changes name of School of Management to School of Business and Public Administration

What’s in a name? For the sake of accuracy and clarity, everything: Effective Monday, January 29, California State University, Dominguez Hills changed the name of its School of Management to the School of Business and Public Administration.

The new identity, requested by Donald L. Bates, dean of the School of Business and Public Administration, came after a survey of faculty and staff showed that the old name did not reflect the scope and services of the academic unit.

"The name should adequately describe our functions to our constituents," Bates said. "From our very beginning in 1972, we have been known as the School of Management.  But our purpose and program are so much greater than that, and we wanted our name to reflect the range of learning opportunities we provide as well as faculty’s range and level of expertise.”

Further information can be obtained by contacting Scott Curtis, external relations officer, at (310) 243-3556.
