The CPA Education Foundation of BC (CPAEF) has awarded a $12,000 grant to support up to 10 speakers to attend at UBC|Sauder to share their current research in the 2019/20 fiscal year.

This funding is intended to support faculty development and is part of the CPAEF’s commitment to advance accounting education in BC.   The grant was submitted by Dr. Russell Lundholm, chair of the UBC |Sauder Accounting Division.  Said Lundholm, “[this program allows invited] faculty from other institutions to come to Sauder and present their current research. This is a vital source of cross-fertilzation of ideas that is common in the academic community.”

Brenda Waechter, FCPA FCGA, board chair of the CPAEF replied, “the CPAEF is pleased to continue its long standing support for faculty at UBC | Sauder and wishes Russell and his academic team success with this year’s speakers program.”
