NEWMAN’S DEDICATION ADDS UP TO STUDENT SUCCESS
During his tenure as director of accounting programs in the Bauer College of Business, Newman has cultivated relationships with the nation’s four major accounting firms and with the city’s leading corporations.
Thanks to his dedicated efforts, students in the accountancy and taxation department’s professional, master’s and certificate programs have greater access to internships and full and part-time jobs with these organizations.
One student described Newman as being “one in a billion,” in regards to his commitment to his students as a faculty adviser and clinical professor.
Newman’s dedication to his students earned him the Provost Faculty Advising Award, which is given to a faculty member who demonstrates excellence in undergraduate academic advising. The recipient is honored with a plaque and a $1,000 prize.
“I am honored that my students and staff felt so strongly about me that they nominated me for the award,” Newman said.
The award, however, is not the only recognition Newman has received from UH. He is the recipient of numerous honors, including the 2008 Bauer College Student Organization Adviser of the Year Award.
