Senior instructor of finance Deb Bauer is the new director of the Lundquist College of Business Honors Program. The cohort-based two-year program admits only thirty-five undergraduate business majors each year. Bauer, who earned her master's degree in finance at the Lundquist College and has taught here since 2001, relishes her new role. "We have a great program with a great curriculum in place," said Bauer. "The cohort model provides students with both the support and the challenges they need to excel." Looking ahead, Bauer aims to provide students with learning opportunities outside of the classroom and grow alumni engagement with the program. An avid bicyclist who plans to race cyclocross this fall, Bauer shares with her students the inspiration she draws from her sport: "Explore new things, say 'yes' to the challenging opportunities, have fun, and--when it seems really hard--just keep pedaling."
