• Mark expansion of private university
He will be responsible for designing the university’s business degree and executive education programs, hiring faculty, recruiting students, and establishing a global placement network.
“We have an opportunity to create a school of management that reflects the most creative frontier thinking about how management education ought to be conducted and the way such institutions should be organized for the 21st century,” Mr. Murphy says.
Most recently, Mr. Murphy was director of the Center for Global Leadership at the Federal Executive Institute, the principal executive education and leadership development facility for the federal government’s Senior Executive Service. Earlier, he was the executive assistant to the Librarian of Congress and deputy director of the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies at the Smithsonian Institution.
The University of Sacramento is part of a network of 15 universities operated by the Legionaries of Christ, a congregation of Catholic priests. It opened its doors in January 2005 with a master’s degree in education, as the Legion’s first university in the United States. It currently operates in downtown Sacramento with 80 graduate and certificate-program students.
