Smith School Mourns Loss of Faculty Member Bruce Michelson

Aug 18, 2008


It is with great sadness that the Smith School community mourns the recent passing of our colleague and friend Bruce Michelson.

A well-respected lecturer with the accounting and information assurance department and a 35-year industry veteran and practitioner, Bruce was a favorite with students and faculty who will be greatly missed. His outstanding undergraduate teaching and consistent high ratings across a wide range of accounting courses earned him distinction, including the 2006-2007 Krowe Teaching Award.

A memorial service was held on Friday, Aug. 22 (Hines-Rinaldi Funeral Home in Silver Spring and Mount Lebanon Cemetery, also known as George Washington Cemetery) and a reception followed in the Smith School's Van Munching Hall.

We offer our condolences to Bruce’s family for their tremendous loss. A scholarship fund has been established in his memory. Contributions to the fund can be made to the University of Maryland College Park Foundation and sent to:
