Accounting Faculty Endowed With Fellowships
The Charles W. Lamden School of Accountancy is pleased to announce two new endowed faculty fellowships. The Richard and Susan Seiler Endowed Faculty Fellowship in Taxation will support Dr. Steven Gill. The Goddard Family Endowed Faculty Fellowship in Auditing will support Dr. Yan Luo.
Faculty fellowships are crucial in order to recruit and retain exceptional faculty as well as help to bridge funding gaps in state support. Made possible by generous alumni of the Fowler College of Business, the faculty fellowship endowment gifts to the Charles W. Lamden School of Accountancy were matched by funds from the transformational naming gift to SDSU’s College of Business, donated by Ron and Alexis Fowler in the fall of 2016.
"A college can only reach its aspirational goals through the extraordinary efforts of its faculty," said Dr. Lance Nail, The Thomas and Evelyn Page Dean of the Fowler College of Business. “The generous gifts to establish faculty fellowships will make a lasting difference for SDSU’s Lamden School of Accountancy.”
The Richard and Susan Seiler Endowed Faculty Fellowship in Taxation will support Dr. Steven Gill who was recently awarded the Allan Bailey Service Award for Tenured Faculty. Gill received a BS in accounting from the University of Florida, an MS in taxation from Northeastern University and a Ph.D., accounting from the University of Massachusetts. Prior to entering academia, he held roles in public accounting, internal audit, and corporate accounting.
The Goddard Family Endowed Faculty Fellowship in Auditing, generously given by John and Dianne Goddard, will support Dr. Yan Luo. Luo received her Ph.D. in accounting from Queen’s University in Canada and had served as an assistant professor of accountancy at City University of Hong Kong before she joined the faculty at SDSU. Prior to earning her Ph.D., Luo served as a project finance manager at General Electric (Hydro).
