COLLEGE NOTES

  • Bartley Danielson, associate professor of finance and real estate in Poole College’s Department of Business Management, spoke recently at a meeting of the Rotary Club of Durham about his research on the relationship between school choices, economic development and quality of life. One attendee noted that what really hit home with that “schools do become an economic development driver especially when trying to (recruit) corporations to relocate here to the Triangle.”
  • Next phase for Two Factor Authentication (2FA) involves Google generic accounts. These must be updated by December 13.
