Center for Excellence in Financial Reporting

The mission of the Center for Excellence in Financial Reporting is to encourage continuous improvements in financial reporting for the benefit of the investing public. The Center stimulates discussion about current issues in financial reporting – in the broadest sense of the term - through conferences and other gatherings, as well as other activities aimed at identifying best practices and promoting enhancements in reporting. The Center provides commentary and analysis on financial reporting matters, with the goal of identifying ways to meet investor needs in a cost-effective manner.

Leslie F. Seidman, former Chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board, is the Executive Director of the Center. She is a guest lecturer and mentor to advanced accounting students at Lubin, as well as a consultant to faculty on relevant research and curricular topics. She speaks at industry forums and serves as an ambassador to other organizations in the field on behalf of the Lubin School of Business.
