Two Retiring Faculty Designated with Emeritus Status

Emeritus status is conferred by the BGSU Board of Trustees in recognition of distinguished service to the University, and two retiring College of Business faculty members received this honor. Dr. Sue Mota was named Emeritus Distinguished Teaching Professor of Economics and Legal Studies and Dr. Dan Bragg was designated Emeritus Associate Professor of Management.

Dr. Mota, a legal studies professor, joined the BGSU business faculty in 1984.  She earned her juris doctor from the University of Toledo College of Law and her master’s and bachelor’s from BGSU.  The University designated her as a Distinguished Teaching Professor in 2007 which is one of the highest honors BGSU can bestow on a continuing tenured faculty member. During her tenure, Dr. Mota published over sixty journal articles, taught both graduate and undergraduate level courses, and served as the associate dean for Executive and MBA Programs. She earned several College of Business awards for her teaching and research excellence during her tenure.  

Dr. Bragg retired after completing 35 years of service as a tenured Associate Professor of Supply Chain Management.  During his tenure, he served as the chair for the Department of Management, the coordinator for the Supply Chain Management specialization, and was instrumental in updating departmental governance documents for the promotion and tenure process.  Dr. Bragg was the primary faculty member teaching the production planning course.  He was well known for his expertise in Excel spreadsheets and their applications for supply chain management problem solving.

The College thanks these professors for their long-term commitment and dedication to the University, the College, and the students.
