Holly Bishop-Green Leaves a 36-Year Legacy

UC Davis Alumna Joined Alma Mater in 1980 and GSM in 1988

After more than three decades of service to the Graduate School of Management and UC Davis, Holly Bishop-Green has decided to retire this spring and plans to spend time with friends and family and travel.

Bishop-Green has helped thousands of graduate students over the years to navigate the requirements during their academic journey and to launch their careers. She has served as associate director of academic and student services and the School’s registrar since 1995, and before that was coordinator of career services.

A true blue Aggie at heart and 1977 alumna of UC Davis, Bishop-Green started her career on campus in September 1980 in the Admissions & Student Services in the Dean’s Office of Veterinary Medicine. She left in November 1987 and interim Dean Michael Maher brought her aboard the then-Graduate School of Administration in October 1988.

During her time at the School, Bishop-Green has touched many, including students, faculty, staff and alumni. She’s been a gracious host to new staff and faculty, inviting them to her home and making introductions and connections to the School’s community.

She’s a big fan of Aggie athletics, especially football, basketball, women’s gymnastics and golf, and enjoys seeing GSM alumni at games. As an Aggie booster, she is well known for encouraging others to support student-athletes, and is always “recruiting” prospective students for UC Davis and the Graduate School of Management.

“I could not have imagined a better career than working at UC Davis and my time at the GSM specifically,” Bishop-Green said.

“It has been rewarding to be part of building the School and being surrounded by incredibly bright, motivated and energetic people every day. I have made life-long friends among staff, faculty, students and alumni, and look forward to continued involvement in GSM because it is such an integral part of my life.”
