St. Francis College's accounting department continues to be among the nation's best, according to a new national ranking from the online education platform Study.com. This is a testament to the strength of its academic curriculum and its success preparing students for good careers.
Helping propel students from under-represented populations into fulfilling accounting careers, St. Francis College has launched a student chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA), a nonprofit membership association dedicated to bridging the opportunity gap for Black professionals in the accounting, finance and related business professions.
"We are sharing today that we will be doing our part to cultivate the sympathetic awareness of our history and of the continuously changing global and local landscape to emphasize that St. Francis College is devoted to fostering a campus climate that encourages the deepest respect for all human beings and that aspires to create a community where everyone feels like they belong."
St. Francis College joins higher education institutions across the country to celebrate the achievements of Black Americans and recognize their central role in U.S. history, as the College commemorates this year's Black History Month, held annually in February.
