Welcome from the Dean of the School of Business & Digital Media

Jennifer Edmonds
Dr. Jennifer J. Edmonds
Dean and Professor

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you, and on behalf of our students, faculty and staff, thank you for visiting our page and taking the time to get to know more about the School of Business & Digital Media.

As Dean, I am excited to engage the School’s students, faculty, staff, and new friends in innovative ways. My vision is to promote the SBDM to the business community, expand the School’s existing career preparation and professional development activities for students, and foster connections through SBDM events on campus.

In the School of Business & Digital Media, we are focused on empowering our students to engage and succeed in this rapidly changing world. Our approach includes a commitment to high quality academic programs, opportunities for within-School and campus-wide development and leadership opportunities, and career exploration through experiential immersion. Just this past spring, we adopted a new strategic plan, in which our strategic goals include (1) establishing the SBDM Foundation, (2) Program Excellence, and (3) Faculty, Staff, and Community Engagement.

Again, welcome! All of us in the School of Business & Digital Media are looking forward to seeing you soon at a campus event. Please take a moment to review our most recent annual report!
