Nathan Goldman Named 2022-23 University Faculty Scholar

Nathan Goldman, Poole College associate professor of accounting, has been named to NC State’s 2022-23 class of University Faculty Scholars announced on February 17. Early-and mid-career faculty receive this designation in recognition of their outstanding academic achievements and contributions to NC State through their teaching, scholarship and service to the university and beyond.

Goldman will carry the title of faculty scholar for the duration of his faculty appointment at NC State. Nominees are evaluated on research and scholarship productivity, excellence in teaching and mentoring, and leadership in extension, professional societies and public service initiatives.

The University Faculty Scholars Program was established by Chancellor Randy Woodson in 2012. Each year, approximately twenty tenured or tenure-track faculty scholars are identified to receive this honor.

Goldman started his career at NC State in 2019 as an experienced assistant professor. Over the last two years he has been one of the most productive researchers in the accounting department and has attended over forty national and international conferences.

“Nathan is a top researcher, but goes beyond just producing work for the academic community. He has the rare skill to be able to translate complex problems (in his case – taxes) into understandable and actionable advice. He’s just a great example of a “Think and Do” faculty member,” said Frank Buckless, Stephen P. Zelnak Jr. Dean.

In North Carolina, he has become the go-to expert for his insightful comments on tax and financial issues with over two dozen interviews and appearances in outlets including WPTF and WUNC radio, WRAL and CBS 17 news, the Charlotte Business Journal and the Raleigh News and Observer.

In addition to his research, Goldman is a well-regarded teacher and mentor. He serves as a faculty advisor for an undergraduate case competition and as a mentor in the Pack Promise Program along with serving as an informal mentor for many of his graduate students.

“Nathan is well known and well regarded nationally,” said Roby Sawyers, Dixon Hughes Goodman professor and head, Department of Accounting. “At this early stage in his career, he has already been asked to chair important meetings and conferences.” 

“Within our department, he has been eager to lead critical and time-consuming activities including chairing our research workshop committee, planning an upcoming risk governance research symposium and chairing an on-going faculty search committee. I am confident he will be a true faculty scholar in all aspects of his career in the decades to come.”
