Rocky Mountain PBS On The Move

Rocky Mountain PBS Logo

Rocky Mountain PBS plans to move headquarters.

Rocky Mountain PBS is marking its 60th anniversary with a Denver Central Library exhibit sharing with visitors its past, while CEO Doug Price, looks to its future.

The public broadcaster is working towards a $30 million capital campaign to fund new headquarters at 21st and Arapahoe streets.

The project, with Rocky Mountain PBS at its core, will ignite development in a neighborhood on the verge of urban revival.

If funding goals are met, RMPBS’s plans include a major new complex containing offices, studios, a theater possibly to be run by the Denver Center for Performing Arts, a “Discovery and Exploration Center” or digital learning lab for inner-city kids as well as an educational campus for the University of Colorado media department.

RMPBS’s plan still requires city approval.

Scott Reiman, local investor, business leader and philanthropist, is proud to serve on the board of directors and support Rocky Mountain PBS.

Daniels College of Business – A Leader in Women’s Education

University of Denver Daniels College of Business logo pic The Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver (DU) was among the first schools of higher education in the United States to admit female students to its MBA programs and other studies in finance. In 1945, Ida S. Eggland and Nellie Edith Camblin became the first DU women to earn their MBAs, a full decade and a half before Harvard University’s business school opened its doors to female students. Today, more than 40% of the school’s students are women.

Throughout its history, Daniels has demonstrated its commitment to recruiting the brightest, most capable business students, regardless of their gender. In 1908, the year it was founded, the school’s first graduating class included women, and the first female certified public accountant in its program completed her studies three years later. In the 1920s and ‘30s, fully one-third of the Daniels student body consisted of women. By 1944, almost two-thirds of the college’s students were female.

Today, student groups at the Daniels College of Business include Daniels Women in Business, which works to champion expanded leadership opportunities and professional development for women. In addition, its Delta Sigma Pi co-educational fraternity serves the needs of men and women in business-focused programs.

The school undertook an extensive nine-month search in cooperation with international search firm Korn Ferry to locate a leader of Dr. Chrite’s caliber. The new dean possesses more than two decades of institutional leadership experience and most recently served as dean and professor of management and international business at Montclair State University in New Jersey. In this position, he focused on modernizing the business curriculum at the school to prepare students for the competitive job market. His programming led to a 40 percent increase in graduate enrollment, as well as global partnerships with other schools. In addition, he instituted a new executive MBA program and established a Center for Entrepreneurship.

Before assuming his duties at Montclair, Dr. Chrite worked at the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona as associate dean and Gemelli faculty fellow. In addition, he functioned as the assistant dean for global development at the University of Michigan’s Ross Business School.

Dr. Chrite will assume his duties at Daniels in August 2014.
