Howe, professor of accounting at SUNY Geneseo’s School of Business, is one of 13 SUNY faculty members receiving distinguished honors this year. The designation recognizes masters of teaching who also demonstrate “outstanding service to students, and commitment to their ongoing intellectual growth; scholarship and professional development; and adherence to rigorous academic standards and requirements.”

The SUNY board of trustees noted that Howe “creates a highly interactive classroom setting where students develop essential proficiencies for their future profession” and also lauded his support and mentorship for students, along with continuing relationships with alumni that benefit current students.

Howe has taught at Geneseo since 1995, and directs Geneseo’s master’s level accounting program. He advises several accounting student organizations.

“Professor Howe is a deeply engaged educator whose passion for teaching and learning is legendary,” said SUNY Geneseo Provost Stacey Robertson. “His commitment to mentorship of students extends well beyond their undergraduate years at Geneseo and has resulted in a devoted alumni network that eagerly supports current students. We are proud and delighted to have another exceptional faculty member named to the highest teaching rank in SUNY.”
