Dorothy J. Smith is currently the Human Resource Management Program Director here at GGU. Her active involvement and student advocacy is truly represented by the love she constantly receives from students in her program. And, although you may not be in her program, she is not limited with her concern for student success and often responds to any student seeking assistance of any kind.

 

She is an alumni having received her graduate degree in HR from GGU and began her second career here in 1995 as an adjunct lecturer after a successful career in HR with a well known and highly respected fortune 100 telecommunications company. She took an early retirement from this prestigious company having reached the level of Executive Staff Manager and migrated into academia for which she has garnered a real passion. She is principal of Designing Judicious Solutions (DJS) consulting firm and has consulted with both mid-size and large corporations. GGU now keeps her busy, but she maintains a current business consulting license for her firm. She attained partial CEBS certification (Certified Employee Benefits Specialist) and has held SPHR (Senior Professional in HR) certification for the past 20 years. Dorothy J (as she likes to be called) is completing a DBA with a concentration in HR.
