Georgia State University Students Provide Valuable
Business Continuity Planning

Five students from Georgia State University’s Robinson College of Business recently completed a very valuable Capstone Project on Business Continuity Planning (BCP) for both DNR’s Office of Human Resources and also the Engineering & Construction Division.

DNR’s association with GSU is a result of John Martin, DNR’s Chief Information Officer, collaborating with Dr. Shuguang Hong, Associate Chair of the Computer Information Systems Department at the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University. This effort, DNR’s fourth partnership with GSU, resulted in GSU students Krisna Patel, Nicole Pierre, Lawrence Jackson, Yang Du, and Gavin Strickland spending the fall 2016 semester analyzing DNR’s critical business needs and formulating a plan for OHR and E&C to recover quickly from potential business interruptions, minor or catastrophic.
