Daemen Accounting Program Earns International Accreditation

Daemen Accounting Program Earns International Accreditation

Daemen College’s Accounting Program has earned accreditation from the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), making it one of only five colleges in the country to hold this new specialized accreditation.

The five-year accreditation follows a rigorous self-evaluation that demonstrated Daemen’s accounting program meets the high standards established by the IACBE, an on-site visit that included an independent peer review, and a review by the IACBE Board of Commissioners.

“This prestigious new accreditation is a testament to the excellence of our accounting program at the national and international level,” said Dr. Sharlene Buszka, chairperson of accounting, business administration, and paralegal studies. “As an accredited IACBE institution, it reaffirms the strength and quality of the accounting education our dedicated faculty provide our students.”

Hotel Owners Turning to Sure Step to Keep Guests and Employees on Their Feet

Slip-and-fall injuries are a serious concern for all businesses, and the lodging industry is no exception. In fact, think about all the areas in a hotel, motel or bed-and-breakfast that have an increased potential for falls: Lobby floors and uncarpeted walkways, buffet and dining areas, kitchens, around swimming pools and saunas, locker rooms, restrooms. It’s a pretty lengthy list.

To prevent slip-and-fall accidents, more and more businesses, including hotels, are turning to a product called Sure Step, offered locally by Western New York-based Nonslip Safety Solution, to keep guests and employees on their feet. The result: Fewer potential lawsuits and/or missed work days.

Start a Conversation During National Suicide Prevention Week

Start a Conversation During National Suicide Prevention Week

This week, Sept. 10-16, is National Suicide Prevention Week. For some of us, it’s a time to reflect and mourn those we have lost. And for all of us, it should also be a week filled with starting conversations, taking an active role in suicide prevention, and seeking immediate help for those suffering from depression or carrying the burden of suicidal thoughts.

“Suicidal thoughts and depression can impact anyone of any age, race or gender. It does not discriminate,” said Monica A. Farrar, a licensed mental health counselor and private clinician in Williamsville. “Far too often I meet individuals and families who feel embarrassed or ashamed to openly discuss mental illness and suicide, and that needs to end. Help is available, and it may be a simple conversation that opens the door to treatment and a far better life.”
