Gregg Goldman, Senior Associate Dean for Finance & Administration and CFO of the USC Marshall School of Business, has begun his tenure as president of the Western Association of College and University Business Officers for the 2012-2013 academic year.

Goldman previously served as vice president of the board of WACUBO, the organization that offers higher education business and finance professionals in the western region opportunities for members to develop professionally, to explore issues and trends in higher education and to engage with colleagues to share their expertise. WACUBO’s mission focuses on professional development, promoting and maintaining professional standards and conduct for institutional, administrative and financial effectiveness.

Goldman is also on the board of the National Association of College and University Business Officers and serves as board secretary.

WACUBO is one of four regional associations that, along with the national office, comprise the National Association of College and University Business Officers, a membership organization representing more than 2,500 colleges, universities and higher education service providers around the country and world. WACUBO membership includes institutions in 14 western United States, three Canadian Provinces, Mexico and other Pacific Rim nations.

“I look forward to this broader leadership role within WACUBO, and the opportunity this brings to share my experiences in my work at USC Marshall,” said Goldman.

Goldman joined Marshall as CFO in 2003 and oversees a wide range of administrative functions, including: budget and finance, human resources, on and off campus facilities and planning for Marshall's new undergraduate instructional building.

“Gregg’s involvement with WACUBO in various leadership capacities has undoubtedly enhanced his effectiveness as Marshall’s CFO,” said James G. Ellis, dean of the USC Marshall School of Business. “I am sure his tenure as president will bring a greater perspective through his work with the member institutions both here and abroad.”

Goldman has also led several programs within the USC Marshall community, including a Marshall Wellness Initiative and a School-wide program to enhance staff communication and interaction.
