2017 Distinguished Service Award – Dr. Sandra Kranz

Professor of Accounting Dr. Sandra Kranz, recipient of BSU’s 2017 Distinguished Service Award, is a professor who, after 30 years at BSU, remains active and energetic in all her teaching and learning activities. Both colleagues and students recognize her passion for helping students.

Even during her Spring 2017 sabbatical, she has continued to actively participate in important departmental events and decisions and provide online advising to her students. As a longtime former chair of the Department of Accountancy, she deserves significant credit for the fact that BSU’s online accounting program has been a leader in growth and quality, earning a No. 7 nationwide ranking.

Said a colleague, “Sandy has worked tirelessly to make students number one while maintaining a high-quality academic program.”
