Withum opens Learning Lab at University of Central Florida

Top 100 Firm WithumSmith+Brown has launched the Withum Learning Lab at the University of Central Florida, offering a dedicated space to accounting majors in the university's College of Business.

The lab was designed by Withum creative director Jin Park and features modern workstations and amenities for both undergraduate and graduate students. The center also offers tutoring services and a space to collaborate with fellow students.

“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,” stated Russell Goldberg, Withum’s partner in charge of its Orlando office. “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.”

The Learning Lab was established in memory of three of the firm’s late staff members who were "an inspiration to their peers and displayed unparalleled enthusiasm and passion for accounting" — Sandi Breitenstein, Barb Sorenson and Robin Word.

“The Withum Learning Lab is essential for our students,” said Gregory Trompeter, director of the Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting at UCF's College of Business, in a statement. “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.”
