Business plans
Incoming College of Business Dean Linda Oubre was interviewed by the San Francisco Business Times for a June 8 article that described her goals. “We are growing what is already a great program and trying to reach out to the corporate community to get more opportunities for students, faculty and alumni,” Oubre said.

Showing the way forward
Reuters interviewed Director of the Family Acceptance Project Caitlin Ryan in a June 15 report about Supportive Families, Healthy Children: Helping Latter-day Saint Families with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Children, the project’s first faith-based booklet. “Many parents have believed that if they came from a faith that was at odds with having a gay child that they had to choose between their child and their faith," Ryan said. "Our approach is really that even families that are struggling can modify their behavior and keep their family together."

Reversal of fortune
Political Science Lecturer David Lee commented for a June 19 San Francisco Chronicle report on the upward mobility of Asian American immigrants. "It is a reversal of fortune for Asian Americans,” Lee said. “One hundred years ago, they were the poorest of the poor. Today, they are the best-paid, best-educated, most-in-demand workers in the country.”
