d e a n ’s l e t t e r

Dear Daniels Community, This year, the Daniels College of Business marks our halfway point in the Daniels Tomorrow strategic plan. In this progress report, we celebrate our accomplishments and progress made toward that plan in fiscal year 2010–2011. Our success would not be possible without the hard work from all of our Daniels Pioneers—faculty, staff, alumni, volunteers and friends. Over the past few years, our community has worked at an unprecedented pace to accomplish so much in such a short amount of time. And, I am so proud to be a part of such a dedicated community. The Daniels Tomorrow strategic plan consists of seven strategic goals for Daniels to accomplish by 2014, and in 2010–2011, we made considerable progress on each goal. This year, I am proud to announce that Daniels:

» Optimized our undergraduate enrollment numbers through the new secondary admissions process

“O u r v i s i o n i s bo l d, bu t i a m certa i n t h at toget h er w e w i l l mov e da n i e l s f orwa r d to a n e v eN b r i g h ter fu t u re .”

» Named the Joy Burns Center, home to the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management

» Expanded our corporate partners program to more than 75 partners » Raised more than $14.5 million in private funds » Added even more C-level executives to our Executive Advisory Board

» Made a substantial jump in our rankings and international reputation in Bloomberg Businessweek, European CEO magazine and Forbes

» Hit record attendance numbers at our signature event, Voices of Experience, with an average attendance of 1,000 attendees per event

» Connected with alumni at new events such as our Daniels Nights athletic events, the Daniels Week BBQ and the Snow Ball holiday party

» And, many more!

» Hired 12 new faculty positions » Launched DanielsNetWorth.org, a worldwide knowledge exchange showcasing our faculty’s expertise

C hr i stine M . Riordan , Ph D, D ean I wish to offer my sincerest thanks to the Daniels Pioneer community for making this possible—the dedicated faculty, staff, alumni, partners and friends who contribute significant time, energy and resources toward Daniels Tomorrow. Our vision is bold, but I am certain that together we will move Daniels forward to an even brighter future. With warm regards,

Christine M. Riordan, PhD Dean, Professor of Management Daniels College of Business

vision Daniels made great strides this year toward offering more services to our students and alumni and strengthening corporate engagement. In December 2010, Daniels started the City Treks program, taking top graduate and undergraduate students to New York City and San Francisco to learn about various companies, industries and careers. Daniels staff and students also attended several national career fairs this year, including the National Black MBA Career Conference and the National Society of Hispanic MBAs Career Fair.

Develop the Daniels community into one in which everyone is valued and included, where people connect and engage, and where ideas, career opportunities and strong relationships enhance lives.

The IE Committee received $50,000 from the Colorado Multicultural Career and Internship Fair fund and other gifts from donors and the IE Case Competition, bringing the balance of the committee’s fund to $72,000, which is to be used for scholarship and professional development activities. Daniels added an Inclusive Excellence Graduate Fellow, MA higher-education student Clorindo Lucero, who was awarded the fellowship by the Morgridge College of Education in partnership with the Center for Multicultural Excellence. Lucero is helping the Daniels IE Committee promote inclusive excellence College wide.

wide. The College hosted its second Inclusive Excellence Case Competition in April 2011. The event grew significantly from 2009–2010, drawing 90 applicants from six schools and colleges across DU—from which 48 students were selected to compete on 12 teams—and 10 participating companies, including sponsors, executive judges and case writers. The competition raised $20,000 and awarded $14,000 in scholarships to the winning teams.

Our community members know that inclusiveness isn’t just a buzzword, it’s a business imperative. This is why this year at Daniels we invested in our community through inclusive events, activities and partnerships that nurture relationships and encourage the free exchange of ideas.

In 2009–2010, Daniels developed and began using scorecards that capture key metrics in three areas: resources, quality and people. This year we continue to update these scorecards and report on our progress toward meeting our strategic goals. Units and departments maintain their scorecards, which compare current-year performance with the prior year to measure progress.

These progress reports include active, completed, in progress, deferred and new steps.

s u pp o r t i n g a l e g a c y b y p a y i n g i t f o r w a r d The Executive MBA Legacy Endowed Scholarship Fund Katie Kramer (Executive MBA, 2009) says that a big part of why she co-founded the Executive MBA (EMBA) Legacy Endowed Scholarship Fund is because she personally understands the importance of scholarship support. “It’s a payit-forward opportunity in my life,” says Kramer. “I was blessed to receive a Boettcher Scholarship that funded my undergraduate education and also provided financial support for my graduate studies. Now, I want to help others as they pursue their educational goals.” In 2008, Kramer and her EMBA classmates Chris Cord, John Hogan and Scott Vencill established the scholarship fund. It was their team’s social capital project, and its legacy is carried on by subsequent EMBA cohorts. After the passing of Daniels professor Dr. John Bazley, donors can now give to the fund in his name. Kramer has dedicated her career to the philanthropic sector, specifically working with higher education. After graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder, she joined the Boettcher Foundation—the organization that awarded her a full undergraduate scholarship. Since 2002, Kramer has served as vice president and assistant executive director of Boettcher. Her support of Daniels goes beyond financial—she is an executive coach for the EMBA program and mentors EMBA students with their social capital projects. Giving back to her alma mater and community, Kramer says, is just a part of who she is. “Being involved with Daniels is important to me because I enjoy staying connected to the program that was so meaningful in my own life.” Kramer hopes that future EMBA alumni will contribute to the Executive MBA Scholarship Fund. “Investments in Daniels, small or large, help ensure that the reputation of the College will continue to grow,” she says.

SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

O p e n in g D o o r s t o a N e w C a r e e r Daniels Scholarship Recipient Jessica Gu Shares Her Story

“It’s a new door to different work,” says Gu. “It’s a new world because I’m from China. Social networking and communication is much different in the U.S.”

“It’s a great opportunity. I’m already creating a personal relationship with the ACG leadership committee to help other students.” - Jessica Gu

Each year, the Denver chapter of the ACG awards a scholarship to an MBA student from the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver. ACG-Denver helps Colorado business owners and senior executives navigate the growth business community through valuable content, best-of-class resources, capital formation, and networking and connections with an influential community of executives growing companies locally, statewide and worldwide. The scholarship supports Gu financially, but she says it’s not about the money. She also receives a full membership to ACG, allowing her to attend ACG professional events such as the monthly luncheon.

Denver natives Phil and Shelley Tamminga each had their own unique path to the University of Denver, the place that holds so many special memories for the couple who met at a hockey game, dated through college and married after graduation. Growing up a mile from campus, Phil recalls DU hockey games, swimming in the old field house pool and sneaking onto the Pioneers football field as a kid. DU was a family legacy—his grandmother was one of the first women to earn a PhD in education from the University in the 1940s and later taught at the Women’s College. His father earned a business degree; his mother earned her bachelor’s, master’s and PhD degrees in sociology and also taught at DU. Phil received a BSBA, and a graduate teaching assistant position helped him continue on to earn an MBA. For Shelley, a trustee scholarship enabled her to attend DU, joining her brother there. She went on to graduate with a degree in psychology. “That scholarship made DU possible,” she says. After DU, Phil enjoyed a 24-year career at Accenture, where he got the company involved with Daniels. “I was responsible for Accenture’s recruiting program at Daniels, and I loved that,” says Phil. “I always felt the caliber of Daniels graduates was very high.” In 1998, then-Dean Jim Griesemer invited Phil to join the College’s Executive Advisory Board, on which he still serves. In addition, Phil and Shelley are members and co-chairs of the Dean’s Society—an elite group of Daniels donors who contribute $1,000 or more to the College annually. “We’ve always been fortunate and feel a responsibility to give back,” says Phil. “Over the years, we’ve been surrounded by others with the same belief, so the practice of giving back is a tenet of our lives. Supporting Daniels is important to us. We benefitted from others’ support of the University before us, and feel we should carry that obligation forward.”

When Jerad Larkin was looking at colleges, he had three criteria: a great place to live, an excellent university with ample academic options and friendly people. DU and the Daniels College of Business were everything he hoped for and then some. A lifelong competitive freeskier from upstate New York, Larkin admits that the Rocky Mountains were appealing, but as he nears graduation, it is the quality business education that stands out most.
