The Vanderbilt University Board of Trust has bestowed emeritus status on three of Owen’s most acclaimed faculty. Germain Böer, Richard Daft and Hans Stoll were honored during Commencement as the school’s newest faculty emeriti.
Böer, who was professor of accounting, as well as director of the Owen Entrepreneurship Center, is now professor of accounting, emeritus. Daft, formerly Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Professor of Management, is now professor of management, emeritus. Stoll, the Anne Marie and Thomas B. Walker Jr. Professor of Finance, is now professor of finance, emeritus.
“Together, these three professors have dedicated more than 90 years of scholarship and teaching to Owen. They have been favorite professors to hundreds of students and outstanding colleagues with whom it has been a pleasure to work,” says Dean Jim Bradford. “I regret that their retirement will rob future students and faculty of the opportunity to learn from them.”
