                              CBA Visited by Its AACSB Mentor, Dr. Mo Sarhan
                         CBA hosted its AACSB Mentor, Dr. Mo Sarhan, Dean, College
                         of Business Administration, Savannah State University, Savan-
                         nah, GA from September 15-17, 2010. The meeting was an op-
                         portunity for the mentor to review the progress CBA has made
                         since its last Progress Report (January 2010) and to advise the
                         Dean, Department Chairs, faculty, staff, and university admini-
                         stration on strategies for achieving outstanding goals. Dean
                         Sarhan was particularly impressed by the speed at which the
                         CBA Building was progressing, as well as the achievements of
                         the faculty in professional development, especially peer-
                         reviewed journal publication. He also complimented the work of
CBA’s Office of Student Services. Dr. Sarhan pointed out a few areas that need more attention as CBA moves for-
ward with its quest for AACSB accreditation, including:

    Completion of at least one Assurance of Learning Review Cycle prior to AACSB site visit.
    Securing more autonomous and college-controlled funding sources for faculty development and student support.
    Paying greater attention to student advisement and enforcement of prerequisite.
    Recruitment of additional qualified faculty.
    Addressing the issue of faculty salary inversion.
    Identifying and publicizing major achievements by graduates and current students.

Dean Sarhan expressed confidence in CBA’s ability to meet the January 15, 2011 Annual
Progress Report submission deadline and in the college’s ability to ultimately achieve
AACSB accreditation.

                              introduced to several of their upper-class classmates (Ellis Brent, Tommanisha Dean, and Jamal
                              Greenberry) who invited them to join the various clubs and organizations available through CBA.
                              It was a great afternoon, very informative, and students were given the opportunity to get many of
                              their questions answered by campus experts. Each student was given a backpack with the inscrip-
tion ―I Chose CBA at SUNO‖ as a welcome gift and in appreciation of their choice of SUNO and a CBA major.

                                    Cheering for the Class of 2011

The Office of Student Services recently processed 102 applications for candidates for Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 graduation
which will nearly triple the number of students graduating with a CBA major, last year. Several of the students graduating are
members of the 2006 and 2007 cohorts (students who began their college career at SUNO as new freshmen during the Fall se-
mester ) who were able to complete their coursework within the six year period which determines graduation rate. We also ex-
pect to have several students finishing with Latin and University honors. Go class of 2011!
