I just got to know Kit while doing my first research project .. and reading this news just after few weeks of knowing her and reading her book makes me feel really sad and reminds that life is so unpredictable. May God bless her soul and take care of her family. RIP

I was so sorry to hear about this. She was an inspiration.

Unbelievable loss. She was such a beacon for GGU. :-(

Great woman and inspirational professor. Such a loss

Very sad - an incredible loss.

Such a loss. Kit was an inspiration

Rest In Peace🙏

Remarkable and lovely person! She will be so missed by so many.

What's it like starting a new job during Covid-19? Kajsa Agnevik, MBA/HR '19, shares her experience:

"I started a new HR/Office Manager role in Redwood City with Trustly in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak. The shelter-in-place order was announced one week before I started. Although I was concerned about the rapid spread of the virus, I couldn't help but being super exited about my new job. However, I understood that an onboarding process working from home would be a different experience than what I have had previously.

It has now been two weeks since I started my new role and I am surprised how smooth the transition has been. I have daily virtual check-in's with my manager and regular stand-up meetings with my team via Zoom. I miss the social aspect and my own office space, however, I'm very grateful to live in a time with all these great online resources that allows me to enjoy my new job despite what is going on in the world right now."

On our new Back to the Baysics talk show, host Marc Singer chats with Nina Coveney, Project Manager with Biederman Redevelopment Ventures. They discuss the idea of placemaking, particularly in San Francisco around GGU. How does public space affect daily life in a city? How does a park or a common area affect economic development and a sense of community? What kinds of event programming can enhance the use of public space? And how will the pandemic and shelter-in-place policies affect us and the way we think about places like Salesforce Park and Bryant Park?

Tune in this Wednesday at noon. More information on our GGU Presents web site. www.ggu.edu/about-ggu/ggu-presents
