Dear Fellow Deans,

Greetings from Garden City, New York!

Within the next few days, we will be welcoming our new batch of first-year students. Members of this class were born—wait for it—as recently as 2000! Also, six new faculty members are joining the Willumstad School. Our beautiful and safe campus is alive with excitement. I wish all of you a very successful upcoming academic year!

IMPACT—New Faculty Members Join the School

This fall, we are welcoming six new faculty members—five of them in tenure track positions. That's a pretty big number for us! Four of the new hires are joining our decision sciences department, and one joins management and one finance. These new faculty members markedly augment our ability to develop and deliver new courses and programs at our various locations, while also further raising our scholarly profile.
INNOVATION—High School Students Learn About the Accounting Program
As in past summers, in partnership with the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA), faculty in our Department of Accounting organized and hosted the Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) program on campus. COAP is a unique learning experience designed to introduce promising, underrepresented high school juniors to careers in accounting. Twenty-seven students participated in this year's weeklong program. Jack Angel, CPA , associate professor of accounting, coordinated this program.
ENGAGEMENT—Community Connections

The Willumstad School offered a three-credit Summer Pre-College program to high school students at our Garden City campus, taught by Murat Erogul, Ph.D. , professor of management (pictured above, left). The course focused on business and entrepreneurship and enabled the students to develop the skills, values and attitudes needed for success in business and innovation development.
