Gómez replaces Alex Saragoza, who resigned Tuesday after 10 months in the post.

J-School to launch biz reporting center
The Graduate School of Journalism will launch a business journalism center for aspiring and veteran business writers and editors, thanks to a three-year, $585,000 grant from Bloomberg L.P.

Starting with the fall 2001 semester, the journalism program will offer instruction on the basics of financial and economic markets along with specialized courses in reporting on personal finance, technology, international business and economics. Site visits to corporations and business publications will be an integral part of the curriculum.

As part of the business journalism center, North Gate students also will be encouraged to take classes in accounting and finance.

Students also will write for a school-based business news service that will provide stories for financial Web site and daily newspaper publications, as well as for trade journals and broadcast outlets.

First annual service awards luncheon set
The Office of Human Resources and the chancellor will hold the first campus-wide service awards celebration Sept. 21.

By June 15, 2001, send any forms not yet submitted for the calculation and confirmation of any 2001 awards through Dec. 31. As in the past, submit these forms to Employee Relations.
