In one case, a new name – one with all the sex appeal that “insurance” can add to a title – has people like Framroze Virjee, president of California State University Fullerton, visibly stoked.
“This is something special,” Virjee exuberantly told a group of insurance industry executives last week during a board meeting of the Center for Insurance Studies, part of the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics at CSUF.
CSUF has more than 40,000 enrolled students, and it graduates 12,000 students a year, so it should be noteworthy for Virjee to use the word “special.”
Virjee was speaking to the board about the center itself, which in 20 years of existence has developed over a dozen courses and three concentrations for roughly 1,100 students.
It’s a small fraction of the school president’s massive student body, faculty and staff oversight.
