Withum has partnered with the University of Central Florida (UCF) to establish a new learning lab, which officially welcomed its first students following a recent ribbon-cutting event. Located in building BA1 on the UCF campus, the new center offers students a place to seek tutoring services as well as collaborate with fellow accounting majors.
The lab, which was designed by Withum’s Creative Director, Jin Park, features state-of-the-art workstations and amenities that appeal to today’s undergraduate and graduate students. The décor also features inspirational messages of passion, innovation, and strength that align with Withum’s unique corporate culture.
The Withum Learning Lab is an extension of our ties to UCF and its College of Business, where the next generation of business advisors and accountants are being challenged to refine their skills and creativity. At Withum, we take our responsibility very seriously to contribute to and pave the path for the future of our profession, which will only soar to new heights that not-too-long-ago once seemed unfathomable. Russell Goldber Withum Partner-in-Charge of the Orlando Office
The Withum Learning Lab was established in memory of three of the firm’s late team members who were an inspiration to their peers and displayed unparalleled enthusiasm and passion for accounting. Sandi Breitenstein and Barb Sorenson, who passed in 2015, as well as Robin Word, who passed in 2016, were honored posthumously.
The Withum Learning Lab is essential for our students. For those who are being tutored, they obviously receive one-on-one education from more senior-level students. Less obvious is the expertise developed by the tutors who really solidify their knowledge of the subject by teaching it to others. In both instances, Withum is helping UCF develop future leaders for the community and the profession. Gregory Trompeter Director of the Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting at UCF College of Business
In addition to the Withum Learning Lab, the firm awards its Annual Employee Memorial Scholarship to two deserving undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in UCF’s Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting. The firm, which has an office in Downtown Orlando, also is a Corporate Sponsor for the College of Business and participates in a wide range of activities that include committee involvement, sponsorships, and support of UCF athletics.

Many CPAs and advisors offer succession planning services to their clients. A problem is that most of our clients that should have some plans do not want to spend the fees necessary to have any sort of a plan; but if they still own the business when they die, they will leave a massive mess for their family and loyal employees that assisted in helping them get where they were.Nov 11, 2019
