Chaminade Business Students Take First Place in Global Competition

June 16, 2015 · 1 Comment · Campus News, News & Press Releases, Notables

First winners at IACBE's global student competition: Chaminade Business students know how to take care of business.

 Chaminade Business students took care of business this April in Baltimore, winning first-place at IACBE’s global student competition. From left to right are faculty advisor, Richard Kido, students Darnell Fenderson, Chelan Crane, Kiana Avalos and Remi Kohno, and faculty coach Wayne Tanna. 

The student team from the School of Business and Communications at Chaminade University took first place in the fourth annual global student case-study competition hosted by International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) held recently in Baltimore, Maryland.   Chaminade students, Kiana Avalos, Chelan Crane, Darnell Fenderson and Remi Kohno made their faculty coaches Carolyn Kuriyama, Wayne Tanna, and Richard Kido (faculty advisor) very proud, said Scott Schroeder, PhD, dean for the School of Business and Communications at Chaminade University.

“It was exceptionally strong work,” Schroeder said. “This is the second time in three years participating that Chaminade students have won the competition. The presentations were certainly the best that we faculty have seen a Chaminade team do.”

Open to students from all IACBE-member institutions worldwide, the IACBE annual student case-study competition focuses on business ethics and is scheduled in conjunction with the IACBE Annual Conference and Assembly Meeting each year. IACBE is committed to “partnering with colleges and universities in preparing today’s business students for tomorrow’s workplace.”

In this spirit, the case-study competition is intended to provide students with an opportunity to showcase their abilities to analyze a case, to identify and discuss recommendations for ethical action, and to “think on their feet.” The case-study competition requires their ability to (1) work as members of a team, (2) collect and analyze data, and (3) effectively present case information and answer questions in a clear, concise, and professional manner.

In their case presentations, each team had to identify and explain the relevant background information of the case, which included legal, financial, economic, marketing, and management issues relevant to the case, and presented the ethical issue that they had chosen to address. After presenting the case information, the teams had to make recommendations for action that were solidly grounded in ethical theory.

Teams were selected based on the combined scores from four rounds of presentations over two days of competition. The winning team was awarded a $1,000 scholarship, sponsored by Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

The International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) was founded in 1997 in response to the expressed needs of presidents, chief academic officers, and business deans and chairs who wanted an accreditation process that was mission-driven and outcomes-based. The IACBE is nationally-recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), and is the leader in mission-driven and outcomes-based programmatic accreditation in business and management education for student-centered colleges, universities, and other higher education institutions throughout the world. The IACBE’s mission is to promote and recognize excellence in business education in institutions of higher education worldwide, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, through specialized accreditation of business programs. The IACBE has hundreds of member institutions and campuses worldwide, and has accredited over 1,200 business and business-related programs in the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Central America, and South America.

Chaminade University has received specialized accreditation for its business programs through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE). Chaminade business programs in the following degrees are accredited by the IACBE:

  • Master of Business Administration – General
  • Master of Business Administration with Accounting Concentration
  • Master of Business Administration with Not-for-Profit Concentration
  • Bachelor of Science in Accounting
  • Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration
  • Associate of Arts in Business Administration

 

Celebrating 60 years of educating students for life, service and successful careers, Chaminade University offers a four-year graduation guarantee with programs of study grounded in the liberal arts including day, evening, online and accelerated courses.

Gwen Anderson, PhD Selected by Chaminade University As its Dean For the School Of Nursing

June 10, 2015 · No Comments · Campus News, News & Press Releases, Notables

Gwen Anderson, PhD Dean School of Nursing Chaminade University

Gwen Anderson, PhD Dean
School of Nursing
Chaminade University

Chaminade University welcomes Dr. Gwen Anderson as its new Dean of the School of Nursing.  Anderson previously served in higher education in Nursing at the undergraduate and graduate level in California and in British Columbia.

“I came to Hawaii because the Chaminade nurse exemplifies the beliefs and practices that called me into nursing service with the same focus as years ago: grace, an open heart, professionalism, and a disciplined mind,” said Anderson. “I believe Chaminade nursing education celebrates the bridge between the spirit and science which translates into quality relationships and confident application of knowledge at the bedside.”

Anderson received a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Victoria, a Master’s degree in Nursing from the University of Alberta, a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Nursing from Boston College, and a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Biomedical Ethics from Stanford University.  She has a strong and rich history as a leader in the field of nursing. Dr. Anderson’s transformational and authentic styles of leadership support diversity, dialogue, team work and collaborative partnerships. Her work leading a national team of Program Directors in the Veteran Affairs Health Administration System to design and implement a standardized RN post baccalaureate residency program exemplifies a remarkable leader who practices mentorship and coaching.

“I’m very pleased that Dr. Anderson has accepted this important leadership position,” said Chaminade president, Bro. Bernard Ploeger, SM, PhD. “Her long experience in building partnerships with the Veterans Administration and our military services will be especially important to furthering the outreach of our School of Nursing.”

Anderson’s program of research has explored and disseminated knowledge about ethical issues, cultural values and decision making often called into focus with applications of genomics in research and practice. With more than 50 publications in peer reviewed journals she emphasizes genomic nursing competencies; the perspective of families as they embrace the impact of genomic knowledge about themselves, their children and grandchildren; and the importance of creating morally accountable polices that protect genomic privacy.  She has advocated, promoted and developed genomics education for nurses in the US and in other countries. She and her team of research staff at VA San Diego Healthcare System have contributed to an ongoing national study by the Office of Research and Development in the Department of Veteran Affairs to enroll a million Veterans across the US into a research study designed to investigate a better understanding of how genes affect health. Her years of experience on institutional review boards for the protection of human subjects provide a rich resource as the ‘genome expert’ for Chaminade and Hawaiian organizations.

Celebrating 60 years of educating students for life, service and successful careers, Chaminade University offers a four-year graduation guarantee with programs of study grounded in the liberal arts including day, evening, online and accelerated courses.
