Fisher dedicates new faculty suite
The Fisher School of Accounting dedicated the Deloitte Foundation Faculty Suite on Tuesday in Gerson Hall. The Deloitte Foundation, along with Deloitte partners and Fisher alumni Loreen Spencer (BSAc ’87, MAcc ’88) and Robert Tache (BSAc ’88, MAcc ’89), generously provided a $500,000 gift to support faculty and its activities at Fisher.
Because the State of Florida does not provide funding for faculty research support, private giving in this area is critical to maintain Fisher’s status as one of the nation’s top accounting schools. Deloitte’s gift will be used to provide research grants for Fisher’s talented scholars in their pursuit of innovative and groundbreaking research.
Deloitte has a long history of supporting Fisher. The firm has established the Deloitte Foundation Professorship, the J. Michael Cook/Deloitte & Touche Professorship, the J. Michael Cook, Deloitte Student Commons and the Deloitte Classroom in Gerson Hall. Deloitte has also been a recurring sponsor of Fisher’s Women in Accounting Symposium.
