2019-20 Annual Report

From the Dean

The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on all of our lives. From our students and their commitment to learning, to our faculty who quickly shifted to move hundreds of courses to a virtual instruction, I’ve been uplifted by the resilience of our campus community. 

On the front lines, our Business Niner alumni and supporters have been stepping up to solve problems, keep us safe and keep businesses going in this challenging time. This type of dedication is what defines us as 49ers and makes me proud to serve as your new dean. 

We’re doing great work and are excited to share with you some recent examples. 


Jennifer Troyer, Ph.D.
