Fisher School of Accounting 2022-23

Executive Summary id="executive-summary"

Mission Statement

The Fisher School is committed to providing global thought leadership by creating influential research, fostering an inclusive lifelong learning community that educates and supports future professional and academic leaders, and engaging with the global professional community.

Our mission reflects the Fisher School’s commitment to inclusiveness and enhancing the intellectual capital of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as our intent to instill an ethic of lifelong learning in our students. The mission reflects the importance we place on our graduate programs to produce ethical and thoughtful leaders of the accounting profession, to develop the faculty of the future, and to contribute to research that solves current and future problems.

From the Director's Desk

Our students, faculty, and staff are looking forward to the start of the new academic year with all the attendant academic and social activities. We all enjoy seeing so many of our alumni, recruiters, and friends of the School back on campus. This year, we are holding our first ever “Back to School” Fisher School tailgate before a home football game.

Our students, faculty, and staff were very busy in the last year. We held numerous events, including the Women in Accounting Symposium, Professional Speaker Series, Beta Alpha Psi and Accounting Council events, and numerous recruiting activities. Students participated and excelled in national case competitions, and we continue to see impressive placements of our graduates in attractive career positions.

Accounting data analytics remains an important focus for us through our new faculty in this area and new analytics course work. We are in the process of preparing our Self-Study Report for our upcoming AACSB accreditation peer review visit in January 2024. We in the Fisher School are always engaged in continuous improvement to make sure our graduates are as well prepared as any in the world. But the every five-year AACSB review is very useful in that it requires us to summarize and report on exactly what we’ve done in the last five years, how we’ve achieved or not achieved our strategic goals, and to report our plans for the future.

You will find much good news in this report. Our students and faculty continue to make us proud with significant awards and recognition. Our faculty are extremely productive in research and teaching and contributions to the profession. The Fisher School undergraduate and graduate programs continue their high national rankings. Achieving high rankings is not our goal. Rather, we believe these high rankings simply reflect the quality of everything we do at Fisher, Warrington, and UF.

The contents of this report contain only a sampling of our activities over the last year. Please visit our website often to keep up with Fisher School news and learn even more about our students, faculty, programs, and alumni.

Fisher School mourns the loss of Dominique DeSantiago

It is with deep sadness that the Fisher School of Accounting shares the loss of Dominique “Dom” DeSantiago. The former associate director for Fisher School of Accounting passed away on February 23, 2023. He was 63 years old.

DeSantiago earned both a BAcc (‘87) and a MAcc (‘89) from the University of Florida, was named Tax Student of the Year in 1989, was a recipient for the Snowball Fellowship for Graduate Study in 1988 and received the Presidential Recognition for Outstanding Contribution to the University of Florida in 1988.

In May of 1994, after becoming a CPA and spending some time in public accounting, DeSantiago became Associate Director of Fisher School of Accounting where he served alongside Directors Doug Snowball, Jack Kramer, Joel Demski and Gary McGill. He retired in August of 2015.

Celebrating the Fisher 45 Legacy Challenge

In 2022, the Fisher School celebrated 45 years of providing exceptional accounting education to students. To ensure that future accounting students have access to the same outstanding education as generations before them, the Fisher School launched the Fisher 45 Legacy Challenge. During a five-year period, we asked our alumni and friends to consider making an estate commitment to benefit the Fisher School.

Thanks to their commitment to ensuring the school’s bright future, Fisher alumni and friends boosted the school’s legacy gifts to 45, representing the number of years since the school’s founding.

Because of these 45 legacy gifts, the Fisher School will be able to fund future programs, scholarships, faculty projects and more. Through legacy gifts made today, the school is able to better make decisions about how it can continue supporting its community in the years ahead.

Accounting a community can count on

Moving to Navy bases around the world at a young age, Jason Wells (BSAc ‘00, MAcc ‘00) learned the value of community. With this experience, came an appreciation for whatever neighborhood he may find himself in.

As President and Chief Operating Officer of CenterPoint Energy, a utility company that provides electric and gas utility services across six states, Wells finds it a privilege to serve his community while leading electric and gas operations, customer service, regulatory and legislative affairs and information technology teams.

Before his time at CenterPoint Energy, Wells earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees simultaneously in the 3/2 Program at the Fisher School of Accounting. With a great interest in finance and economics, pursuing two degrees at once just made sense to Wells. With the skills gained from these degrees, Wells quickly rose through the ranks in the accounting world.
